Baahubali catapulted Prabhas into national wide star. The Baahubali The Conclusion has been a sensation grossing over 700 crore in Hindi alone. Bollywood producer Karan Johar who presented the magnum opus to Bollywood audience was heaped with profits. KJo wanted to make a straight Hindi movie with Prabhas. However, the film didn’t materialize and Prabhas got busy with Saaho. Buzz has it that the Telugu rebel star asked for a remuneration of 20 crore with which KJo had second thoughts.
As per latest update, Varun Dhawan has been roped in for the same film. The young hero is riding high with back to back hits. While his previous film Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya collected over 150 crore, his latest film ‘Judwaa 2’ surpassed 200 crore. Reports suggest that Varun has demanded 25 crore but still KJo preferred him over Prabhas. The above image of Varun backstabbing Prabhas during Baahubali success party thrown by KJo appears apt to the current situation!
