Believe it or not but it’s a fact. Prabhas – the star of India’s biggest blockbuster BAAHUBALI has lost cores.
Finding it hard to digest? Allow us to help. The 37 year-old actor let go of brand endorsements worth Rs 18 crore that came his way during the filming of the magnum opus that went for 5 years.
Prabhas has unconditionally devoted his five years to BAAHUBALI. We heard of his rejection of record marriage proposals but this unique example of sheer dedication made the maverick S.S. Rajamouli awed.
Rajamouli has been quoted saying, 'Prabhas had three consecutive hits and producers kept running after him with money but he only focused on BAAHUBALI.' But Prabhas had not received his due payment for BAAHUBALI and having not signed up any other work for 5 years; he was almost without any money! It was his single-minded focus on the movie that he 'instructed his manager not to demand anything from producers and take anything they give.'
The director added, 'There was a time when he (Prabhas) was stressed for money.' However, even at that point of time, he did not accept other offers that came knocking at his door.
It is reported that Prabhas has rejected offers of commercials worth 18 crores. Currently, Prabhas is in the US for a month-long holiday. The actor has already signed his next project, yet another larger-than-life big ticket trilingual film, SAAHO.
