On September 3, 2020, Saif Ali Khan was introduced as Lankesh in Prabhas starrer Adipurush. Now, looks like Angad Bedi has been roped in to play his son Meghnad in Om Raut's pan-India film.
"Angad has done multiple meetings with the team, and the producers believe he fits the role of Saif's on-screen son. Currently, on a family holiday in Delhi, the actor is expected to sign on the dotted line once he returns to the city. Angad, who will have to undergo physical transformation to portray the larger-than-life character, is expected to kick off prep next month," revealed a unit hand. According to mythology, Meghnad, also known as Indrajit, was an all-powerful figure who was granted a boon by Lord Brahma that he could only be killed by a man who had conquered sleep.
Adipurush is said to be based on a popular chapter of Indian mythology. It will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Om, Prasad Sutar and Rajesh Nair. Prabhas is said to undergo physical training to attain the physique of an archer.
According to earlier reports, Adipurush is likely to go on floors in 2021. It will release in theatres on Independence Day 2022 and will be shot in Hindi and Telugu and dubbed in Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
