Prabhas’ next films attract big bucks

Prabhas

By: Mohnish Singh

Prabhas, who was just another actor working in Telugu films, became a national phenomenon after the earth-shattering success of Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017). Apart from establishing Prabhas as a superstar, the franchise also proved to be a game-changer for Indian cinema. Blurring cultural and linguistic barriers, the Baahubali franchise wrote a new success story.

Prabhas followed up the success with Saaho (2019), a trilingual action-thriller. Also featuring Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh in important roles, the film went on to set the box-office on fire. Despite receiving poor response from critics, Saaho did exceptionally at the box-office and turned out to be one of the highest-grossing films of the year.

The latest we hear that the distribution rights for his two upcoming films exceed his earlier films. A source in the know informs a publication that distributors across Northern India offered a whopping price to the makers of his upcoming films, considering the success of his recent movies.

The source says, “Prabhas is one of the most loved superstars and he has a massive fan following not only in the South but also across India. His films Baahubali 2 and Saaho were box office hits, and the Hindi rights to the movies were sold at a massive 50 crores and 70 crores, respectively. Details about his current project are still under wraps. However, even before its release, various distributors from the Northern market have taken a keen interest in purchasing the rights to the movie for a massive amount that exceeds that of his last two films.”
