Ever since he has become the All India Star post the release of Saaho - which he has driven single-handedly to 400 Cr. Club - Prabhas has been in the news almost everyday. But there is no clarity about when his next film is going to hit the screens. Two of his most ambitious projects haven’t yet started shooting. The one whose shoot is almost completed or in the final stages - Radhe Shyam - hasn’t been in news. Neither in terms of pre-release buzz nor in terms of buzz-increasing promos.
Meanwhile, the films - Adipurush, and the Nag Ashwin directorial - which still have to hit the road-to-shoot (formal shoot started, principal shooting yet to start) have been sharing updates about the cast, crew, or even technology to be used for filming. Salaar just started principal photography
How many days Prabhas fans can cheer these nominal updates without a proper release date or promos for his immediate next film? Why are the makers of Radhe Shyam keeping everything under the blanket and not a even song is released in all these days? In these days of trending everything, it’s only Prabhas fans who are in confusion which is aptly represented by the following meme.
Enough updates are there as there are three big releases lined up. But they are in no way useful for them to boast or cheer for a long time. Including this year, in the last 8 years, he has only 3 releases. The only hope is if any 2 of these 4 films click as expected, he’ll become an international star or at least an Asian superstar and rule the next decade.
But at what cost? One frustrated fan joked, Prabhas would release only 3 films in the 2020s.
