Project K is 70% complete and both Deepika and Amitabh Bachchan only have 7-10 days of shooting left.
"While watching Project K, you don't get the impression that you've seen this scene or sequence before..The fights will be one of a kind..Prabhas is the main focus but these three characters (Prabhas, Deepika, Amitabh Bachchan) will carry the entire film. " - Producer C Aswani Dutt with a Telugu channel
