This film had been delayed from the beginning as it was running into troubles for various reasons such as heroine Anushka leaving the project owing to non-compatibility with director and Tammannah getting in.
Once Tammannah got in some parts of the film’s scenes were re-shot. Later, music director Thaman too left the project and Lawrence himself stepped in as the music director.
This film took two years to be finished, hence Prabhas could not work in any other projects including Rajamouli’s film. But, now again there is a buzz in the industry that Rajamouli and Prabhas might be coming together for a period film.
Rebel is being directed by Raghava Lawrence and produced by J Bhagavan and G PullaRAo on Sri Balaji Cine Media banner.
