In the wake of his previous box office hit, “Kabir Singh,” and the much-anticipated “Animal” creating a significant buzz before its release, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga is now gearing up for his next Hindi film, titled “Spirit.” Excitement is soaring as the film is set to be headlined by none other than the superstar, Prabhas. The production reins will be held by Bhushan Kumar, who recently confirmed this exciting news in an interview.
Speaking with Pinkvilla, Bhushan Kumar revealed, “Right now, I want the audience to concentrate on ‘Animal.’ After that, we will start ‘Spirit.’ We’ll take a gap of five to six months and then commence work on ‘Spirit.’ Following that, it will be Allu Arjun’s film.” The collaboration between Bhushan and Allu Arjun marks yet another exciting chapter in their partnership.
According to insiders quoted by Pinkvilla, “Spirit” is set to commence filming by June 2024. This grand-scale action film, produced by Bhushan Kumar, will see Prabhas in the role of a cop. However, what sets “Spirit” apart from conventional cop thrillers is Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s unique storytelling flair. While the initial groundwork for the film’s concept is complete, full-fledged production will kick off after the release of “Animal.”
As Bhushan Kumar alluded to, the Allu Arjun-starrer, which is already announced, is slated to begin production at a later date. The core idea for the film, which brings together Allu Arjun and Sandeep Reddy Vanga, is locked in but will enter the development stage after “Spirit.”
Bhushan Kumar expressed his satisfaction with his working relationship with Sandeep Reddy Vanga, stating, “We are like a family now. He loves working with me, I love working with him. I give him full creative freedom. His brother and he are also partners in all the films we do together. I feel the director who creates the project should not only get the fees but also the benefit of the film doing well at the box office or any platform. That way, we have a very comfortable relationship.”
As fans eagerly await the release of “Animal,” which boasts an ensemble cast featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Tripti Dimri, Bobby Deol, and Anil Kapoor, the anticipation for Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s “Spirit” starring Prabhas has already begun to build. With this exciting lineup of projects, Bollywood enthusiasts can look forward to a series of action-packed and captivating films in the coming years. “Animal” is slated for release on December 1 this year, promising a thrilling cinematic experience for audiences.
