A source in the know reveals, “Lokesh was in Hyderabad a few months ago to promote his Vijay-starrer Master, and that’s when he met Prabhas. It was a casual meeting, and the director narrated a story to Prabhas, which he really liked. The two have kept in touch since then, and have decided to work on this film next after they complete their respective projects. An official announcement will be made much later this year.”
While Lokesh is directing Kamal Haasan in the much-anticipated Vikram, Prabhas is presently shooting in Europe for Radhe Shyam, a romantic drama that co-stars Pooja Hegde.
