There is no denying the fact that Prabhas has emerged as a pan-India star after the humongous success of the S. S. Rajamouli-directed fictional period drama series Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017). The actor was last seen in Saaho (2019), a multilingual action entertainer which went on to do terrific business at the box-office despite poor critical response.
After the release of Saaho, fans have been waiting for Prabhas’ next film, tentatively titled Jaan. Besides him, the movie also features on-the-rise actress Pooja Hegde who is creating waves in Bollywood as well.
Since the production of all films has come to a complete halt in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, the makers of Jaan on Tuesday took to social media and informed fans that no progress has been happening on the shooting front ever since the team returned from Georgia.

They said that the team will resume work on the movie once the Coronavirus scare settles down. “We are amidst a global pandemic and many lives are at stake due to the current situation. Owing to the current situation, we have paused all our activities. After all this is over, we promise to come up with many more updates. We urge everyone to stay home and stay safe!” UV Creations wrote on Twitter.
South Indian filmmaker Radhakrishna Kumar is calling the shots for the film, which will release in Hindi as well. The last schedule of Jaan, which was taking place in Georgia, had to be cancelled because of the Coronavirus scare. Earlier, it was revealed by the makers that they have plans to shoot the remaining portions in London and Europe.
Jaan was earlier slated to release on Sankranti 2021. But as things stand at the moment, a possible delay in the release of the film cannot be ruled out.
