After the grand and glorious success of Baahubali and Baahubali 2, Actor Prabhas is a household name in India. Director SS Rajamouli and Prabhas, along with other actors and crew of the movie, created a magic that will be remembered by generations to come.
Prabhas worked as hard as he could on every aspect of his acting and gave a performance that has re-defined acting in India. For 5 years, he ate, drank and slept Baahubali and gave the biggest performance of his acting career, so far.
From VFX, to acting, to direction and everything else, many film pundits believe that Baahubali and its sequel are very close to being called perfect movies.
However, recently, Prabhas gave an interview to PTI and said that he is very happy with the results of Baahubali but he doesn’t want to spend 5 more years on just one project. Prabhas said that every actor has a shell life and he wants to explore more opportunities and doing another part of Baahubali will not be good for his career.
“Actors have limited time. We also have a shelf life. I think I can’t give five years to one project now. Even if I ever give that much time, I will simultaneously keep doing other projects because age is also a factor. It will not be good for my career.”
“Most of my projects now will have a universal appeal. Regional cinema is different, so now I am trying to choose stories that cater to my audiences across the country. I will do stories which most of the audiences like.”
When asked about his interest in Bollywood, Prabhas said that he would love to be a part of Bollywood i.e. Hindi Film Industry.
“I am definitely interested in doing films in Bollywood. And not only in Hindi, I am open to working anywhere in the country, even if it is Punjabi. I will do films in any of the languages, provided the script is good. The region and the language don’t matter.”
“I want my films to be entertaining, not comedy, but something which is gripping. In future, I may do a dark film but currently entertainment is the main criterion,” Prabhas added.
Prabhas also revealed that he is working on improving his Hindi in order to connect better with the Hindi audience.
“Dubbing for myself in Hindi is a big task. I know Hindi. I can read and write Hindi but I don’t normally speak the language and that is very important. I still have that South Indian accent. But I am working on it. Hindi audiences should feel that I am speaking like them and should relate to me.”
