Saif Ali Khan To Play Lankesh in Adipurush
Actor Saif Ali Khan has been roped in to play the antagonist Lankesh in Om Raut directorial Adipurush, starring Prabhas in the lead role. The film marks Saif’s second collaboration with Om. They have previously collaborated on Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. In Adipurush, Saif plays the “world’s most intelligent demon” that existed 7000 years ago.

Saif Ali Khan said in a statement, “I am thrilled to be working with Omi dada again! He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to really pull it off. He has taken me beyond the cutting edge of our cinema in the way he shot Tanhaji and this time he is taking us all further! It’s a phenomenal project and I am super thrilled to be a part of it!”
Om Raut is also excited to collaborate with Saif Ali Khan again. He shared, “To play the strongest villain from our epic, we needed a brilliant actor. Who better than Saif Ali Khan, one of the greatest actor of our lifetime, to essay this powerful role. Personally, I enjoy every day at work with him. I am looking forward to this exciting journey with him all over again.”
