Ever since Baahubali 2 released, a lot has been said and written about Prabhas and Anushka Shetty’s relationship. The two share a crackling onscreen chemistry and have worked in five films together.
In the Telegu film industry, it has long been speculated that the duo is romantically involved. However, both have always denied it. Now, during an interview with a leading daily, Prabhas has revealed about his relationship with Anushka. He said, ‘’When we first worked together we had decided that at no cost we would allow rumours of our linkup float around. We have been film friends for nine years now. We are very good friends. We have known each other for years but I admit sometimes when such stories start doing the rounds, then I too start wondering if there is, indeed, something between us. We know that we are not romantically involved. By the way, this is nothing new — when an actress works with an actor in more than one film, then people tend to make them a pair.’’
Prabhas attained fame as Amarendra Baahubali and Mahendra Baahubali from the “Baahubali” universe — which went on to become India’s biggest blockbuster with worldwide earnings of over Rs 900 crore.
The film’s story is about the battle for the ownership of an ancient kingdom between two brothers. The story is woven together in two parts with dance, music, emotion and drama. It also features Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj.
On the film front, Prabhas is busy with “Saaho”, which will mark Shraddha Kapoor’s Telugu film debut. The film is being shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
