PROJECT K: India-Based Vyjayanthi Celebrates 50 Years With Ambitious Sci-Fi Epic Teaser Art
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva actor Amitabh Bachchan will join Prabhas for an upcoming sci-fi epic. There’s very little info on it except for what’s being cataloged on Wikipedia and reported via numerous Indian publications, but the teaser poster is now viral signaling the production of Project K which has been filming segmentally for the last few years.
The Telugu/Hindi flick comes from writer and director Nag Ashwin for his first venture into sci-fi and action territory which hails from Vyjayanathi Movies for its 50th anniversary, following several drama features. Kurup actor Dulquer Salmaan will also star along with Kung Fu Yoga and Baaghi 2 and 3 actress Disha Patani, and with xXx: Return of Xander Cage and Pathaan actress Deepika Padukone making her Telugu debut for the film’s January 12, 2024 release in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and English. What’s more, is that I’ve only come across this project thanks to a social media post by action director Andy Long Nguyen whose team is involved in the film’s action design following credits like Luc Van Tien: Kung Fu Warrior, Sanak and Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday to name a few.
Other plot and story details are under wraps which never fails to unnerve anyone with an eye on South Asian films. I do have a feeling though that this will be worth the wait anyway. Steady as we go, kids…
