Fans waiting in anticipation to see Prabhas don the role of another legendary hero after Baahubali is in for some exciting news. The upcoming mythology-based film Adipurush, starring the Tollywood heavyweight, is all set for its final shooting schedule in Mumbai.
According to reports in TOI, the cast and crew of the film had made their way to Mumbai on Friday and have started shooting.
