Prabhas is currently busy in his upcoming film, which is being directed by Radha Kirshna Kumar. The film’s title has not been finalised. Until it is, it will be referred with the working title Prabhas 20, as the film is his 20th venture. Pooja Hegde who was last seen in Trivikram Srinivas’s directorial venture Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava is on the board to play the love interest of Prabhas in this romantic entertainer. According to the latest buzz in the film industry, Prabhas20 will retell the classic tale of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, but with a twist.  The sources close to the film unit reveal that Prabhas will be seen playing a rich man whereas Pooja Hegde will be seen playing the role of girl, who hails from a poor family.

#Prabhas20 is a big budget entertainer, which is jointly bankrolled by Gopikrishna Movies and UV Creations. Amit Trivedi has been roped in to compose the tunes for this flick, with Manoj Pramahamsa handling the cinematography department.
