While Prabhas may not have made loads of money before Baahubaali happened to him, its only fair that he’s trying to make up for it now. After all, he has devoted 5 years of his life to the Baahubali movies.
While there are several filmmakers in Bollywood, including Karan Johar, who would love to launch Prabhas in his Bollywood debut, the price he is quoting now may discourage most filmmakers.
In fact, it seems, Karan Johar has already dropped the idea of launching Prabhas in Bollywood after he quoted a huge fee.
Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions had got the distribution rights of the Hindi version of the ‘Baahubali’ films, so it was natural for Karan to hope that he would be able to launch Prabhas.
However, as per reports, Prabhas apparently asked for Rs 20 crore for a film, following which Karan decided to drop the project.
Around 20 Crores is what Prabhas quotes in Telugu cinema.
Prabhas was paid around Rs 25 crore for the two Baahubali movies. He reportedly charged Rs 30 crore for his upcoming film Saaho. Saaho (also features Shraddha Kapoor) is a magnum opus being made at a reported budget of Rs 150 crore.
So I guess, Bollywood will have to wait for Prabhas. And if Saaho goes on to become a huge hit, the wait will only get longer.
