28 Sep – With cinemas reopening all around the world, it was revealed that two Hindi movies will be going head to head with the same release date.
"Adipurush", which is Om Raut's multi-lingual period drama starring Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan, will be having its premiere on 11 August 2022, the same date as the Akshay Kumar-starrer, "Raksha Bandhan".
In a previous interview, Om stated about the movie, "Saif and Prabhas have undergone a remarkable physical transformation and there is massive action involved too. There is a lot of physical transformation that Prabhas has undergone from an artiste's point of view and he continues to work on it even now as we shoot. With Saif Ali Khan, it is evident in the pictures, but I cannot reveal much."
On the other hand, "Raksha Bandhan" will be a different movie altogether - a modern family drama that co-stars Bhumi Pednekar with lead actor Akshay Kumar.
