Prabhas is currently the toast of the nation with the monumental success of Baahubali 2 behind him. The actor is now a known personality in all corners of the world and is highly admired by everyone. Less than three months ago, Prabhas was known just as an actor in South Indian films and a lead role in Baahubali: The Beginning. Post the release of Baahubali 2, Prabhas is now a hot property and is in high demand for many products for endorsements.
Sources say that Prabhas was offered a mammoth INR 10 crore deal while he was shooting for Baahubali 2, but we hear that Prabhas had rejected the offer. A report in a leading daily said, “From apparel, shoes to fitness and FMCG products, brand makers across segments are keen on making him the face of their products. However, Prabhas doesn’t seem to be in the mood to sign any of them, and he has reportedly declined a huge endorsement worth crores.“
Director SS Rajamouli had said in an interview, “Prabhas had three consecutive hits and producers kept running after him with money but he only focused on Baahubali.” Prabhas had not received his payments for Baahubali in due time and had not taken up any other work for five years, he was almost without any money. Prabhas wanted to focus on the movie with undivided attention and he instructed his manager not to demand anything from producers or accept anything that they give. The director said, “There was a time when Prabhas was stressed for money.“
