Prabhas, the widely acclaimed Pan-Indian star, has a lineup of exciting films ahead, including Salaar, directed by Hanu Raghavapudi. Alongside commitments to directors Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Maruthi, he’s reportedly agreed to star in a love story helmed by Hanu Raghavapudi, known for his work in Sita Ramam.
The film, backed by Mythri Movie Makers, is rumored to have a staggering budget of 300Cr and is set against the backdrop of World War 2. However, while Prabhas’s star power might mitigate some risk associated with such a budget, pairing a hefty investment with a director primarily known for different genres could pose challenges.
Unlike action films that can often rely on impactful sequences, love stories pivot heavily on the chemistry between the leads, emotional depth, and captivating music. Hanu Raghavapudi’s transition to this genre might raise concerns regarding his ability to deliver the necessary romantic nuances.
The success of this venture might hinge on balancing the massive budget with the delicate requirements of a love story, making it crucial for the team to craft a compelling narrative that resonates with audiences across languages and regions.
