While Prabhas is essaying the role of Vikramaditya, Pooja Hegde will be seen as Prerana in this heart-wrenching love story set against the backdrop of Rome. The shooting of ‘Radhe Shyam’ is on the verge of completion and the portions featuring Prabhas and veteran actor Krishnam Raju are left to be shot. Besides the lead pair, the big-budget project has an ensemble star cast of Bhagyashree, Jayaram, Priyadarshi, Sachin Khedekar, Murli Sharma, Sasha Chettri, Kunaal Roy Kapur and Sathya.
Jointly bankrolled by UV Creations and T Series, ‘Radhe Shyam’ is directed by ‘Jil’ fame Radha Krishna Kumar with Manoj Paramahamsa handling the camera and Hollywood action choreographer Nick Powell acting as the stunt coordinator. The period drama has been on sets for close to two years and the makers have recently shot a crucial schedule in the massive set at a private studio which is estimated to have cost around Rs 30 crore.
Slated for a worldwide release on July 30th, the recently released Valentine’s Day promo showcased Prabhas trying to woo Pooja by uttering a couple of lines in Italian at a railway station.
