Trending Rumour: Prabhas to act in Shankar's direction

Prabhas has become a pan-Indian star after the superlative success of Baahubali franchise. He has the market no less than a Bollywood hero, in the northern belt. In fact, his last film Saaho, did better business in Hindi regions than in the Telugu states. From now onwards, any Prabhas film that releases will have a high chance of opening big at the box office.

Looks like director Shankar is eyeing on this market value of the Rebel hero. According to the latest grapevine, Shankar is planning to do a film with Prabhas after wrapping up the works of his ongoing project, Indian 2. Apparently, Dil Raju will bankroll this big-budget drama.
Shankar is best known for his visual grandeur films. He is the one who made India's most expensive film, 2.0. He is now gearing up to make this film with even more budget. Even Shankar has pan-Indian popularity. If at all he teams up with Prabhas, there is no doubt in saying that their project will become the most talked-about one in the country.
Prabhas is currently shooting for an untitled film under the direction of Radhakrishna. Pooja Hegde is the female lead in it. This film will release in the second half of 2020.
