Baahubali actor Prabhas has announced that he is playing the title role in his upcoming movie titled Adipurush. Celebs and critics are impressed with its logo poster and say that it is another magnum opus for him.

After the massive success of the Baahubali series, there had been a huge amount of expectations from Prabhas' next movie. The actor experimented with an action extravaganza with Saaho, but the movie failed to match the success of his previous film. Then he opted for a safe route – romance drama for Radhe Shyam, the release of which has been delayed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The big screen adaptation of the Indian epic revolves around the triumph of good over evil. It is going to be a powerful and indestructible role for the actor and everyone is thrilled about the movie.

Prabhas announced the news about Adipurush and released its logo poster on his Facebook page at 7.11 am on Tuesday (August 18). It was big surprise for all his admirers.
