The title and first look poster of Prabhas‘ 20th have been unveiled. Titled Radhe Shyam, the film is being helmed by Radha Krishna Kumar with Vamsi Krishna Reddy, Pramod Uppalapati, and Praseedha Uppalapati’s UV Creations and Bhushan Kumar‘s T Series jointly bankrolling the film. UV Krishnam Raju is presenting the film under his Gopi Krishna Movies Pvt Limited banner. Pooja Hegde has been paired opposite Prabhas in the film.
The poster, which seems to be painted with shades of red, features Prabhas and Pooja Hegde in the closed position in a white suit and red gown respectively. While the top part of the dress is fine, the flares of Pooja’s gown have turned into red water filling the bottom half of the poster. There’s also a streak of white water from Prabhas’ suit. Given the Colosseum in the background, the pair seems to be in Rome, Italy.
UV Creations took to Twitter to unveil the title and poster. Today also marks five years since his magnum opus Bahubali hit the screens.

Touted to be a romantic drama, the film marks the first association of the lead actors. The film also stars Sachin Khedekar, Priyadarshi, Bhagyashree, Murali Sharma, Sasha Chettri, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Sathyan, and several others in important roles.
On the technical front, Manoj Paramahamsa is handling the camera, Kotagiri Venkateswar Rao replaces Sreekar Prasad on the edit and R Raveendar is helming art. The composer’s name is yet to be revealed.
The team commenced with shoot last year and had reportedly completed a few schedules before the nationwide lockdown was imposed. The pan-Indian film will hit theatres in 2021 in Telugu, with dubbed versions in Tamil, Hindi, and Malayalam.
Meanwhile, Prabhas will also feature in Mahanati fame Nag Ashwin‘s next that will be bankrolled by Vyjayanthi Movies. Rumour has it that the movie could be a period film just like Prabhas’ 2015 Baahubali.
Prabhas was previously seen in Saaho helmed by Sujeeth Reddy alongside Shraddha Kapoor. He played an undercover agent who tracks down a crime lord. The trilingual was one of the most expensively shot Indian films with a budget of more than Rs.350 crores. The film is streaming on Netflix.
