If reports are to be believed, Prabhas has signed on for films with Karan Johar, Rohit Shetty and Salman Khan. The latest name to join the fray is Sajid Nadiadwala, well-known for his masala films such as Housefull and Dishoom. At this point, there are no official announcements regarding this. It is not even known if Prabhas is interested in making his Bollywood debut.
And yet, following his hugely successful turn as Baahubali in Rajamouli’s film of the same name, rumours abound of Prabhas’ interest in making his Hindi debut.
Now, a source told ANI that the Baahubali actor is likely to be on board for Nadiadwala’s project.
“For the last five years, Prabhas concentrated only on Baahubali, and turned down several acting offers. While he has already started working on his next (Saaho) he is looking for a big Bollywood debut,” said the source.
The report also states that the actor met with Nadiadwala recently to discuss a possible collaboration.
After Baahubali 2, Prabhas has only committed time to one project so far. Directed by Sujeeth, Saaho is being made in Tamil/Telugu/Malayalam/Hindi. While Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh plays the villain, reports suggest that Anushka Shetty is part of the lead cast. With music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, it will be bankrolled by UV Creations and distributed by Fox Star Studios.
The film’s teaser was released on 28 April, on the day Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was released.
