Tollywood trade circle is getting disappointed heavily by Prabhas and his pace of making films; All hopes on Prabhas20

With the stupendous success of the Baahubali franchise, Prabhas became a pan-Indian star overnight. He now enjoys a massive fanbase across the country. Millions of fans wait for his films. However, Prabhas became so selective in his choices after Baahubali. He is doing one film every two years. This pace is now affecting the market of the tinsel town.

 
There is no doubt that every Prabhas film will make a collection of Rs. 100 crores at the box-office. But the pace at which the actor is making films is not being fruitful to the industry. The trade circles will be happy if big films fare well at the box office. They expect at least one film every year from an actor like Prabhas. That keeps the business running with full glory. But, Prabhas is not in that zone anymore. Before Baahubali, Prabhas made 16 films in 12 years. After the release of Mirchi, he released three films in seven years. At this rate, we can only see him on the big screen once in two or three years.
 
His upcoming film Prabhas 20 will hit the screens in 2021. After that, Prabhas will make a film with Mahanati director Nag Ashwin. This movie will release either in 2022 or 2023. He didn't accept any other project as of now. On the whole, the pace of Prabhas is not only disappointing his fans but also the trade circles of Tollywood.
