The film, which will be dubbed and released in Hindi, will be presented by Anil Thadani.
The project is expected to go on the floors after Prashanth wraps up KGF: Chapter 2, which stars Yash.
Meanwhile, Prabhas is currently busy wrapping up the upcoming Telugu romantic period drama Radhe Shyam. The film, directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, sees the actor play a palm reader.
Prabhas hopes to wrap up this project by December and commence work on his upcoming multilingual science-fiction film with director Nag Ashwin. Deepika Padukone will make her Telugu debut in the project, which will be bankrolled by Vyjayanthi Films.
The actor also has another film in the pipeline — Om Raut's Adipurush, in which Saif Ali Khan plays the antagonist.
