Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Saturday said he gave his first shot with actor Prabhas for the yet-untitled multilingual sci-fi movie and called the ”Baahubali” star a talented, humble artiste.
Filmmaker Nag Ashwin, known for helming the National Award-winning 2018 biographical drama ”Mahanati”, is directing the project, which has been tentatively titled ”Project K”. The film also stars Deepika Padukone.
Bachchan took to Twitter and wrote he would learn a lot while working with Prabhas. ”First day .. first shot .. first film with the ‘Bahubali’ Prabhas .. and such a honor to be in the company of his aura, his talent, and his extreme humility… to imbibe to learn!” the 79-year-old actor tweeted.
Prabhas posted a picture of Bachchan on his Instagram page and wrote it was a ”dream come true” moment for him.

Bachchan and Padukone have previously starred in filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s 2015 comedy-drama ”Piku”.
