Prabhas and Anushka Shetty to star in a love story

After the success of the two part film Baahubali, Prabhas and Anushka Shetty are more likely to work together again for an untitled film which is a love story. The film will be directed by Radha Krishna Kumar. As per the reports in a leading Indian entertainment portal Prabhas will soon start working for the same. The makers of the film were in the process to hunt for the leading lady for the film. As Prabhas is currently busy shooting for Saaho, the makers didn’t go ahead with the project. Prabhas too wanted to complete the shoot of Saaho before committing to other projects. However, Prabhas will be shooting for Saaho and Radha Krishna Kumar’s untitled next simultaneously.

A source close to the actor told the leading Indian entertainment portal, “Just like how Prabhas has not shot for any other project while working on Baahubali, he planned to follow the same for Saaho as well. The film is a actioner and requires Prabhas to be in top shape while rigorously train while shooting and also learn some new skills since he has decided to do his own stunts without a body double. However, the film is taking longer than expected to shoot and Prabhas doesn’t want to wait for the film to get over before starting on the next project.”

Adding further, the source said, “In such a scenario, Prabhas doesn’t want to keep Radha Krishna wait and wants to start work on this love story simultaneously so that he has one film coming out this year or early next year and another production later next year.”

Talking about the leading lady of the film, the source revealed, “Anushka Shetty might come on board for this one. While the director initially was mulling over getting a fresh face on board, he then decided to go with Anushka after the success of Baahubali. Both the actress and Prabhas have been keen on doing an out-an-out romantic film and this one fits the bill.”

Meanwhile, Anushka Shetty is currently promoting her upcoming film Bhaagamathie which will release on January 26, 2018. Prabhas is busy prepping up for his action film Saaho. Once Prabhas and Anushka are free from their respective work commitments, the makers of the untitled love story will hold further discussions.
