According to India.com, lady superstar Anushka Shetty was offered a Hindi film recently but she turned down the offer as her good friend Prabhas asked her to say ‘no’ to it. Confirming this, a source said that T-town’s ‘Darling’ wants his Billa co-star to star opposite him in her first Bollywood film. Moreover, he feels that the film should be produced by his home banner.
“Prabhas is of the opinion that Anushka should make her Bollywood debut with him. He knows that that way they can make the most of their onscreen pair and give fans what they expect out of them. Also, he wants the film to be produced by UV Creations since the sensibilities match and it will be nice to have some comfort level with the producers while working with a new director from another industry,” added the source.
The source also added that Prabhas often takes a keen interest in Anushka’s career and gives her valuable advice.
“They are great friends and each other’s soundboards when it comes to work. Even when Bhaagamathie was being filmed, Prabhas visited the sets to just see on how the film is coming along. So it is only natural that he had a word of advise for his colleague and good friend and Anushka in turn chose to follow it,” added the source.
Well, it will be worth watching if Anushka and Prabhas do ultimately decide to give B-town a dose of ‘Pranushka’ magic.
On a related note, the Shetty girl was last seen in Bhaagamathie and received praise for her work. As far as Prabhas is concerned, he is currently shooting for Saaho. The film is an action-thriller and will feature him in a new avatar. The Sujeeth directorial also has Shraddha Kapoor in the lead and is likely to hit screens in 2019.
