Korean actor roped in for Prabhas-starrer 'Spirit'

South Korean actor Ma Dong-seok, also known as Don Lee, renowned for his roles in 'Train to Busan', 'Derailed', 'The Outlaws', 'The Bad Guys: Reign of Chaos', and MCU’s 'Eternals', will reportedly be seen as the villain in Sandeep Reddy Vanga's next film 'Spirit', starring Prabhas.

The film is set to be a pan-Asian release, with a Korean inclusion to leverage the global popularity of K-pop and K-drama.

Ma has appeared in about 50 films over his 15-year career in showbiz. The 53-year-old star has established himself in the South Korean movie industry as a beloved action character known for being powerful and tough yet friendly and warm-hearted.

He was also the first ethnically Korean actor to take a lead role in a Marvel superhero film, portraying Gilgamesh in 'Eternals'.

South Korean actress Soo-hyun, known as Claudia Kim, played a supporting role as a geneticist in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' (2015).

'Spirit' will be produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series and Bhadrakali Pictures.

Sharing the news, Prabhas said, "This is my 25th film and there is no better way to celebrate it. Spirit has a great feel in the story and it'll be a special film for my fans too. Working with Bhushan Kumar has always been easy and comforting, and he is one of the best producers we have, who I share a great rapport with. Sandeep is a dream director for all, and now with Spirit, I have got the chance to associate with such a powerhouse of talent. It's an amazing storyline and I can't wait to start working on SPIRIT as my fans have been eagerly waiting to see me in this avatar for a very long time."

Sandeep Reddy Vanga also expressed his happiness.

"Announcing the 25th film with India's biggest superstar will be the biggest news for his fans throughout the world. Working with Prabhas Garu will be a great level of excitement and I'm sure the excitement will be doubled once I start to shoot. Everything is big about this announcement because Bhushanji is the biggest producer in the country today, who is also very friendly and understanding. He is like a brother too. I'm very happy and comfortable associating with T-Series and my brother Pranay Reddy Vanga of Bhadrakali Pictures for the third time," he said.
