Actor Nawzuddin Siddiqui has praised
southern star Prabhas for his performance in the magnum opus
"Baahubali: The Conclusion", calling his act as fantastic.
"I saw 'Baahubali-2' and the atmosphere created in the film pulled me into it. Prabhas's act was fantastic," Nawazuddin tweeted on Saturday night.
Starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati as the male protagonists, the film's story is about the battle between two brothers for the ownership of an ancient kingdom. The film also stars Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj.
On the work front, Nawazuddin is busy with "Manto", a biographical film based on Urdu writer Saadat Hasan Manto.
Directed by Nandita Das, the film features Nawazuddin in the title role, and actress Rasika Dugal plays his wife Safia. The movie also features Rishi Kapoor, Swara Bhasker, Ranvir Shorey, Paresh Rawal and Swanand Kirkire.
Over half of "Manto" has already been shot, and the team is likely to wrap up shooting by mid-June.
