However as per sources in the industry, and a report in PINKVILLA, states that there is no fact in those speculations. A trade source revealed, "Anushka is raring to resume work immediately post her pregnancy and there will be big announcements in place as and when the time is appropriate but Adipurush definitely doesn’t feature in her plans. She was not involved in the project at all and thus, she is definitely not doing the film. There has been no discussion on anything about this film right from the script to the dates with her." From Saif Ali Khan in Adipurush to Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt in RRR: Looking at Bollywood Actors Who Will Be Seen in Regional Releases!
