When Baahubali star Prabhas rejected Karan Johar for the second time
Karan Johar, the ace filmmaker of Bollywood, has donned the director’s hat for many incredible actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to the younger generation celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan among others.
While the whole of Bollywood wouldn’t miss a chance to work with KJo, there’s one actor who has rejected Karan for a film for the second time. The actor we are talking about is not a Bollywood A-lister but a South Superstar, Prabhas.
Reportedly, the Baahubali star has rejected a project by Karan for the second time. A report in TOI reveals that Karan Johar who was keen to cast Prabhas for one of his projects had approached the actor but as the south superstar is busy with his big-budget film ‘Saaho’, he had to say a NO to the filmmaker.
Earlier, Karan had approached Prabhas for a project but things didn’t fall into place because the actor was demanding a huge fee. Reportedly, the filmmaker backed out from the project after Prabhas demanded a whopping sum of Rs 20 crore for his Bollywood debut.
Speaking of his upcoming film ‘Saaho’, Prabhas is currently in Abu Dhabi, shooting for a 50-day long schedule. Few pictures from the sets where he is seen riding a bike went viral on social media some days back.
The film also stars Bollywood celebrities like Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff, Mandira Bedi, Evelyn Sharma, Amy Jackson, Chunky Pandey, and Mahesh Manjrekar. This Indian drama film is simultaneously being shot in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil.
‘Saaho’ is slated to hit the theatres next year.
