SS Rajamouli Saw A Superstar In Prabhas Even Before Baahubali, But Prabhas Neglected It

As we all know Prabhas and Rajamouli delivered three blockbusters – Chatrapathi, Baahubali 1, and 2. But there was a time when Prabhas ended up choosing a disaster over a film with Rajamouli.

When Prabhas ignored Rajamouli 

According to a senior producer, Rajamouli was believed to direct Prabhas for a film after Student No. 1. But things never happened as planned.


“Rajamouli prepared a good story for Prabhas and even watched his character by going to the sets of Prabhas’s debut film Eeshwar. I was supposed to produce the film. When Rajamouli and I took the script to Prabhas’s father Surya Narayana Raju, it didn’t go as planned,” the producer revealed.

Picking a disaster over Rajamouli’s film

Speaking further about the incident, the producer explained why Prabhas ignored SS Rajamouli. “They felt it would be better to work with an in-form director than a developing director like Rajamouli. They then picked Raghavendra, a film directed by Suresh Krishna. The film with Rajamouli didn’t happen” the producer said.

Raghavendra then turned out to be a disaster while Prabhas and Rajamouli’s possible collaboration was turned down. After watching the interview, Prabhas’s fans feel that Rajamouli saw a superstar in Prabhas even before he was one.



On the work front, Prabhas is currently shooting for Prashanth Neel’s Salaar. The film’s shoot is progressing in Hyderabad. According to reports, the film will be wrapped by December. Salaar will hit the theaters in early 2023. The film’s release date will be announced in a couple of weeks.
