Meanwhile, Prabhas during a recent interview spoke about his upcoming film Saaho and speculations about his Bollywood debut. “There is no immediate plan but it will be quite interesting. Working with Rajamouli and Karan is home ground for me now having worked with them for such a long time. But I think ‘Baahubali’ has paved the way for pan-Indian films, “Prabhas told PTI.
“My character in ‘Saaho’ is completely contrasting to my character in ‘Baahubali’ and I am quite excited about it. It is too early to reveal anything about the film yet but all I can say that we have the best teams working, we have a massive vision for it and it’s conceptually very strong,” Prabhas said.
