'Student No. 1' Producer Ashwini Dutt Spills The Beans In Ali's Talk Show 21 Years After Movie's Release

Veteran producer C Ashwini Dutt, who is currently enjoying the massive success of 'Sita Ramam,' in a candid conversation revealed some interesting facts about the 2001 hit movie 'Student No. 1' which is also counted as RRR actor Jr NTR's breakthrough performance and marks the directorial debut of stalwart SS Rajamouli.

The ace producer recently graced the celebrity talk show, 'Alitho Saradaga,' hosted by popular comedian Ali. He said that when the story of 'Student No. 1' was ready, they were in search of the lead actor and almost finalised Baahubali actor Prabhas. But, late actor Hari Krishna called him and asked him to select Jr NTR.

However, the producer has finally got the chance to work with the pan-Indian star Prabhas. He is backing the upcoming sci-fi thriller 'Project K,' under the banner of Vyjayanthi Movies with a budget of over INR 500 crore. Dutt has also revealed that 55 per cent of the film’s shooting has been completed. Lead actor Prabhas is currently juggling between the two big budget projects 'Salaar' and 'Project K.'

After hearing this much-needed update on 'Project K' from the producer, Prabhas fans are now elated. The film will also feature legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, and Disha Patani in prominent roles. 'Mahanati' fame director Nag Ashwin is helming the project.
