Prabhas’ portrayal of Raghav in Om Raut’s Adipurush has recently generated a lot of buzz. The audience flatly disapproved of the actor’s portrayal of Lord Ram. Some people criticised him for gaining weight, while others made fun of his overall poor performance as the Hindu God. The actor doesn’t appear to be bothered by any of the criticism, though.
Despite being a huge box office failure, Prabhas has a full schedule for the next three years, including four films, three of which are high-profile pan-Indian productions. According to rumours, the actor has signed on with a Kannada production company for his fifth feature, which is also a national picture in India.
According to reports, Prabhas has agreed to star in a major event movie being made by KVN productions, who are currently working on KD – The Devil. Among other films, Vikrant Rona, Rider, and RRR (in Kannada) are distributed by KVN Films. A sizable cash cheque has been offered to the Baahubali actor for the movie.
In addition to the compelling tale, it is also said that the paycheque served as the actor from Radhe Shyam’s invitation to join the project. The project’s specifics are being kept under wraps. For his next movies Salaar and Spirit, the actor has been asking for 150 crores. His fee for Adipurush was reportedly reported to be 120 crores, but later sources claim it increased to 150 crores; however, none of these claims have been independently validated.
Speaking of side projects, Prabhas is working on Salaar with Prashanth Neel, who will presumably begin work on it after his Jr. NTR movie is over. Project K, starring Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, and Kamal Haasan, is the actor’s current project. The science fiction movie, directed by Nag Ashwin, is described as a contemporary retelling of the Mahabharata, with Prabhas portraying a Karna-inspired role. The third global war serves as the backdrop for the movie, which is based on Lord Vishnu’s tenth avatar.
Spirit, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, is Prabhas’ third movie and it will premiere later this year. In order to balance the Telugu movie’s budget, he is also working on the horror comedy Raja Deluxe. For this project, he reportedly took a pay cut.
Given that all three of Prabhas’ subsequent pan-Indian films—Saaho, Radhe Shyam, and Adipurush—failed to connect with audiences, it will be intriguing to see what his new project with the Kannada producers has to offer.
