Director Gunasekhar, who last made Rudhramadevi, is making a film on the tale of Prahalada. The story will be told from the perspective of the antagonist, his father Hiranyakashipu. The director has registered the title ‘Hiranyakashipa The Story of “Bhakta Prahlad”‘with the Telugu Film Chamber. Reports suggest that the director has already roped in a well-known Tamil actor to play Hiranyakashipa.
Prahlada appears in Vedic literature as a devotee who defies his abusive father even as a young boy.
