Budget of Prabhas-Nag Ashwin's pan world movie revealed
The long wait for the fans of Bahubali star Prabhas has ended as Nag Ashwin’s project commenced with a formal pooja ceremony today.
Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan joined the sets for the formal pooja ceremony that was kept low-key due to the grim situation. Considering the canvas, the big names associated with it, and being a sci-fi movie and a first pan world film, a huge budget has been apportioned. If the rumours to believe, a whopping Rs 500 crores have been allocated for the prestigious project.
Producer Aswini Dutt has spilled the beans on budget of Prabhas-Nagashwin project. The producer stated that back then, when his daughter Swapna Dutt came out with a budget plan for Mahanati as Rs 12-15 crores. He advised her daughter not to think about budget and spend where required, considering it is a biopic and has lavish sets, etc.
“For Prabhas 2, Nag Ashwin and Swapna came up with a Rs 450 crore budget. But as the major chunk of VFX and post-production process would require to be shot in US, the budget may go up to Rs 500 crore or even beyond. It is a huge amount, but it will get its own charm and I am confident,” concludes Aswini Dutt.
Meanwhile, Prabhas 21 shoot is said to occur at a specially erected set at Ramoji Film City. As per the grapevine, the shoot will take place for five to six days.
