We have been hearing multiple rumors regarding the female lead in Prabhas’s next film which will have Nag Ashwin at the helm. Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor and a few other names were apparently taken into consideration.

However, the latest reports suggest that the makers of the film have locked Deepika Padukone as the female lead.

Deepika Padukone recently posted that Nag Ashwin’s ‘Mahanati’ is a must watch and that added more fuel to these speculations.

Deepika Padukone has a large follower base in Hindi circuit and the makers of Prabhas21 are hoping this would increase the film’s market.

Even Prabhas’s fans opine that Deepika Padukone is the right diva to pair up with Prabhas in this as-yet-untitled project. The shooting will commence from later this year.
