After the success of the magnum opus Baahubali, speculations were rife about Prabhas’ debut in Bollywood. However, the actor has revealed about his Bollywood project in a recent interview with a leading Indian daily. He said, “I watch a lot of Hindi films. I live in Hyderabad, where 60 per cent of the people speak Hindi. I am getting good offers from Bollywood. I had okayed a script three years ago. It is a love story that I will do post Saaho.”
Talking about his bond with Karan Johar and his interaction with Bollywood actors at Karan’s house, Prabhas said, “I made a good association with Karan Johar. If I want anything, I think I can ask him. He has helped us a lot. In fact, I met some actors (from Bollywood) in Karan’s house. They were all very chilled out.”
Prabhas will be seen in a romantic character in his Bollywood debut, and he is not worried about experimenting the same as he believes that every actor should undertake different roles. He said, “In Hollywood, the guy who plays Batman and Spiderman also plays normal characters. The biggest stars in the world want to play different characters. We can’t give the excuse that because an actor played a superhero in his previous film, his next one won’t work. If the script is not good, the film will not work. Instead of saying that the script does not work, we say that the actor didn’t work in the role. That is the problem. I was doing a lot of action films and people loved me in those movies. After that, I did a small love story and it was a hit as the script was good. People forgot that I had done so many action films and started liking me in the love story.”
Prabhas is currently shooting for Saaho in Los Angeles. The actor will be seen sharing screen space with Shraddha Kapoor. Saaho is expected to release this year.
