S. S. Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali’ series did wonder all over the world. It was a first South Indian film that achieved fame globally. The movie minted a whopping amount of money and it will be remembered for its magnificence by generations after generations. The actors who worked in the series got fame on the international level. It was a big achievement for India but Prabhas who played the character of Baahubali in the series says he will never invest the amount of time he had invested in the making of ‘Baahubali’ series.
We all know the facts that the film took almost five years to release. The stars were stuck on this single project. It was also reported that Prabhas had refused to work on any other project while doing ‘Baahubali’ because he wanted to stay dedicated towards his role and wanted to give his hundred percent to this big project. However, the actor does not have the same kind of mentality anymore. He believes that an actor’s career works as per his age and he cannot waste a long time on one project because of the age factor.
During an interview with PTI, the 38-year-old actor expressed:
“Actors have limited time. We also have a shelf life. I think I can’t give five years to one project now. Even if I ever give that much time, I will simultaneously keep doing other projects because age is also a factor. It will not be good for my career.”
Prabhas also shared that he is dedicated to doing films that appeal a huge number of audience and not just the audience of a particular region.
“Most of my projects now will have a universal appeal. Regional cinema is different, so now I am trying to choose stories that cater to my audiences across the country. I will do stories which most of the audiences like.”
Talking about his plans to enter Bollywood, the actor said:
“I am definitely interested in doing films in Bollywood. And not only in Hindi, I am open to working anywhere in the country, even if it is Punjabi. I will do films in any of the languages, provided the script is good. The region and the language don’t matter.”
