In Maharashtra too, several restrictions were put in place even for film shoots and amid this, Adipurush shoot may have been affected. Starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan in the lead, Adipurush was being shot in Mumbai Film City till March-end and the new schedule had to kick off a few weeks back. However, due to COVID 19 restrictions in the state, it could not begin. Now, as per the latest report, makers of Prabhas, Kriti and Saif starrer are contemplating moving shoot location to Hyderabad.

The source told the daily, "With 60 days of shoot behind them, the team has about 90 more days of work remaining. Om, with his producers, has zeroed in on a Hyderabad studio where he can shoot in adherence with safety protocols. Most portions will be shot indoors as the movie, in keeping with the director’s filmmaking style, is VFX-heavy." The daily also spoke to the film's team who added that they are trying to resume shooting for Prabhas and Kriti starrer at the earliest. However, they did not divulge much information. 

Well, if all goes well, Prabhas, Kriti and Saif's fans may see them making their way to Hyderabad to resume work on their epic saga that is based on Ramayana.
