Set in the 1970s, “Radhe Shyam” features Prabhas as Vikramaditya, who falls in love with Prerana, played by Hegde.
“’Radhe Shyam’ is a love story but (a lot of other elements) are also there. There are a lot of twists and turns in the movie and I hope you like it. I think the highlight would be a highlight, ”Prabhas said.
The “Baahubali” star was speaking at the film’s mega trailer launch event held at Ramoji Film City here on Thursday night.
Prabhas also praised Kumar, who made his directorial debut with the 2015 hit “Jil”, for his passion and determination towards “Radhe Shyam” despite many obstacles.
“It’s no joke to work on a film for five years. Because the movie started and stopped, planning a movie again. It was after “Baahubali”, then starting at the time of “Saaho”, then stopping it because of COVID and starting it again. It would be very frustrating but he fought (back), “said the 42-year-old star.
The director, for his part, expressed his gratitude to the team for supporting their vision through thick and thin.
“I thank everyone for being by my side for four years. I am grateful to Manoj sir (Paramahamsa – director of photography) you have been the reason we are so excited every day,” said Kumar.
“Pooja, you were born to make this movie. Prabhas, you are not a star, a superstar, you are a universe. You have taught me so many things,” he added.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the filming schedule of “Radhe Shyam”, like several other films, has also been affected.
“The producers, director, crew, and all the techs put a lot of effort into making this movie happen during the COVID-19 timeframe,” Prabhas said.
Sharing similar sentiments, Hegde said that she admired Kumar for his passion and willingness to do “Radhe Shyam”.
“His passion inspired me so much. I shot for so many movies in the middle and came back but his passion was intact it’s easy to lose it but he was excited the whole way, “she said.
Hegde, 31, said the whole team had worked extremely hard on the project.
“This film took a long time to make, it’s been four years and we gave as a team our blood, our sweat and our tears. We hope you all like it.
“We are grateful to our passionate producers for creating this fantastic world and to all of the cast and crew for their support,” she added.
With “Radhe Shyam,” Hegde said that Prabhas had attempted to make a full-fledged love story with the pure intention of providing varied content to his fans around the world.
“After doing ‘Baahubali’ and so many action movies and being able to select a movie like this, he’s trying to give his fans something new to watch. Hope you all enjoy this movie. C “is very different. You will see a new Prabhas and Pooja,” the actor said at the event.
She also remembers nodding to “Radhe Shyam” immediately after the narration.
“It’s a beautiful fairytale world,” Hegde said, adding that the film would create magic on screen.
The mega trailer launch event also brought together directors Om Raut, Nag Ashwin and Sandeep Reddy Vanga who are working with Prabhas on different films.
Raut, who directed the actor in “Adipurush,” wished him luck on “Radhe Shyam” and said the film was more than a romantic sci-fi drama.
“It’s not a love story. He has it all. I’m sure people will like him,” he said.
Prabhas’ “Project K” director Ashwin said he loved the trailer for the film.
“What works well for a romantic movie are three things – the chemistry of the lead duo, the music, and the release date. Prabhas and Pooja have amazing chemistry, the music for the movie is really good and the next thing is the release date. Overall the movie looks very exciting, ”he added.
Reddy said he was thrilled to team up with Prabhas on the film titled “Spirit”.
“Radhe Shyam” also stars Bhagyashree, Murli Sharma, Sachin Khedekar, Priyadarshi, Sasha Chettri, Kunaal Roy Kapur and Sathyan.
