There is no doubt that Prabhas rose to international stardom with the unprecedented success of “Bahubali – The Conclusion”. But the real power of his stardom came to light with one distribution house offering an astounding sum for the rights of his next film.
The next film that Prabhas is to do is “Sahoo” which will be taken in three languages – Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. The film is yet to commence shooting with the hero still holidaying abroad and the heroine yet to be finalized. Already the UV Creations team which will be producing the film has received an offer of Rs.350 crores for the Hindi theatrical rights of the film. This is truly a stunning development and has left industry watchers amazed. “Sahoo” is to be made on a budget of Rs.150 crores. This only means that the makers will be in a profit of Rs.200 crores even before the first shot is taken.
Never has a South Indian film star command such a demand all over the country. Even Rajnikanth’s films like “Enthiran” did not receive such a thumping welcome in Bollywood.
