Filmmaker Om Raut is all set to kick-start the test shoot of his upcoming magnum opus, ‘Adipurush’. The film is based on Ramayana and stars Prabhas as Lord Ram and Saif Ali Khan as Raavan.

According to reports, the makers will begin the test shoot of the film in Mumbai on January 19. The film is reportedly heavy on VFX and the team will be using new techniques of the motion picture to create never seen before experience for the audience.

The report also added that the director along with the technical team will be shooting in a closed environment with a chroma setup to get used to shooting with the new technology before they start the actual shoot with the cast.

The actual shoot of the film will start only by February end or early March. Prabhas has already started prepping for the role by working for a lean body and learning archery. Saif Ali Khan, too, will be undergoing several acting workshops and undergo body language training to play the evil Raavan on screen.

Apart from Prabhas and Saif, Kriti Sanon is also reportedly a part of the movie. She will be seen essaying the role of Sita in the epic saga.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Prabhas started the shoot of his film ‘Salaar’ with KGF director Prasahnt Neel. He will be wrapping up the film before moving to ‘Adipurush’. Saif Ali Khan, on the other hand, will also have wrapped up the shoot of ‘Bhoot Police’ by then.
