Tollywood's Rebel Star Prabhas must be on cloud nine following the monstrous success of Kalki 2898 AD and the glorious box office success of Salaar: Part 1- Ceasefire. Recent reports suggest that Prabhas will begin filming for Salaar: Part 2- Shouryaanga Parvan on August 10. However, all eyes are on his other highly anticipated project Spirit, helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga.

Tentative Star Cast!

While Spirit is being helmed by Animal and Kabir Singh fame Sandeep Reddy Vanga, it is produced by Bhushan Kumar (T-Series). Well, fans are well aware that Prabhas will be playing the lead role in the movie. However, the makers are yet to announce the female lead and other cast. 

As per the latest buzz in the industry, the makers are planning to rope in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Katrina Kaif in the movie. Speculations are rife that Aish and Kat will be seen in pivotal roles. Moreover, social media is buzz that South Korean-American actor Ma Dong-Seok will be seen as the antagonist and lock horns with Prabhas. While there is no official confirmation from the makers, if the rumours are anything to go by, it will be certainly exciting to see Katrina Kaif, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ma Dong-Seok alongside Prabhas. 

Notably, Ma Dong-Seok is quite a famous name in South Korea as well as in Hollywood. He is known for movies like 'The Outlaws', 'The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil', 'Unstoppable', 'Champion', 'Train to Busan', et al. He also played supporting roles and antagonists in many super-hit films. Ma Dong-Seok is a master of martial arts and has a crazy fanbase for the action scenes he does in his movies.

About Spirit...

Ever since the announcement in 2021, Spirit has remained the talk of the town. While Vanga won't leave any stone unturned to make Spirit a cinematic marvel, fans are eagerly waiting for the related updates. While Spirit marks the 25th film of the Baahubali actor's film career, fans have pinned high hopes on the movie. Reportedly, the estimated budget of Spirit is Rs 300 crore. Spirit promises great visual effects and the director is hopeful that the producer is safe as the movie will recover the budget with Rs 150 crore opening day collection. After wrapping Salaar 2, Prabhas will expectedly begin shooting for Spirit. For the first time, Prabhas will be seen as a cop. 

If the reports are anything to go by, with Prabhas as a powerful police official, Ma Dong-Seok as the antagonist, and Aish and Kat in pivotal roles, Spirit may script history with its box office records.
