Elated to share that I’m resuming shooting for my upcoming film. Looking forward to a fun schedule. A post shared by Prabhas (@actorprabhas) on
Previously, in an interview to Firstpost, Prabhas spoke about the unprecedented success with period drama Baahubali and the kind of pressure he undergoes before every release. He said, "When we started Baahubali: The Beginning, we only wanted the film to do well in Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. Thought that with the extra revenue from Tamil and Malayalam, we could start shooting the sequel but to our surprise, the response across the country was exceptional. Later, the love and reception for the sequel only doubled. While the nationwide acceptance gives me happiness, it also mounts extra pressure on my films.”
His last release was high octane action drama Saaho. The film was a multi-lingual project also starring Bollywood actors Jackie Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor, Chunky Panday, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay and Tinnu Anand in pivotal roles. The action-thriller, written and directed by Sujeeth received lackluster reviews and failed to create any magic at the box office.
