Last year, the much-loved Prabhas became the darling of the film world when Baahubali 2 opened to a thunderous response at the box office and received rave reviews from all quarters. An epic-drama, the film revolved around the war for an ancient kingdom and featured the star in a beefed up avatar. Praising the film, B-town beauty Deepika had said that it did a splendid job of breaking the language barrier.

Whether it’s us (Deepika & Priyanka) as Indian representing India globally or whether Baahubali, which we understand a regional film that breaking barriers and crossing boundaries from their region and that become such a huge success. That’s exactly what it is. The possibility is endless,” she had added.
With 2017 in the rearview, Prabhas is currently shooting for Saaho. The film is an action-thriller and features him in a new avatar. It is slated to hit screens this year but production is taking more time than expected. As such, it may end up releasing g in 2019. In the meantime, Prabhas has also signed a film with director Radha Krishna. And, it seems that it could make it to screens before Saaho. According to reports, the director plans to shoot some key scenes before Prabhas joins the team. Moreover, it seems that the ‘Rebel Star’ will shoot for both films at the same time.
This is developing scenario and it will be worth watching what happens next.
The Radha Krishna film will feature Prabhas in a romantic role and also has Pooja Hegde in the lead. As far as Saaho is concerned, it also has Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh in the lead. Sometime ago, it was rumoured that Prabhas will be playing the role of a cop in this one
