Om Raut made his Hindi film debut, earlier this year with Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Starring Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Kajol in the lead, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior turned out to be a blockbuster at the box office. Post the film’s massive success, Om Raut announced an action film with Kartik Aaryan. However, last month that movie was put on hold and instead, the big budget magnum opus Adipurush was announced.
What made the movie even more interesting was that it stars Prabhas in the titular role of Lord Ram. Later, Saif Ali Khan, who nailed his act in Om’s own Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior was roped in to play Lankesh, Raavan.
