Actor Prabhas will soon be seen playing Lord Ram in the pan-India movie Adipurush, one of the biggest projects of his career. While the actor's look in the magnum opus has been kept under wraps, his latest photos suggest that he'll be sporting a thick moustache in the mythological drama. 'Darlings' feel that his new avatar suits the role perfectly and has the potential to help him expand his fan base further.

Adipurush has, either way, created a fair deal of buzz among fans as it is expected to celebrate the 'victory of good over evil'. The Hindi-Telugu bilingual stars Saif Ali Khan as the antagonist 'Lankesh' and  will mark his Tollywood debut. Actor Kriti Sanon is being considered for the role of Sita. The film will be helmed by Om Raut of Tanhaji fame and is expected to release next year.

Prabhas, meanwhile, is going through a terrific phase on the work front.He will next be seen in the romantic drama Radhe Shyam, a story that celebrates 'eternal love'. The film has been directed by 'Jil' Radha Krishna Kumar and stars Pooja Hegde as the leading lady. It is slated to release in theatres later this year.

He will be seen in a massy new avatar in the actioner Salaar that marks his first collaboration with KGF helmer Prashanth Neel. It may have shades of the director's Kannada movie Ugramm but is not a remake of the same. The biggie stars Shruti Haasan as Prabhas' love interest and is touted to be a gamechanger for the Luck star.

The Baahubali star has also agreed to star in director Nag Ashwin's upcoming film, being referred to as Prabhas 21. It reportedly has shades of the yesteryear classic Jagadeka Veerudu Atiloka Sundari and highlights the concept of the 'inner god'. It cast an impressive cast that includes Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan.
