Telugu superstar Prabhas, like Tamil cinema’s Rajinikant, Ajith and Vijay, is not happy with doing media interaction to promote his film. Given a choice Prabhas would rather let his work speak for him. But here’s the thing. He has no choice with Saaho.
It was very clear from the moment he landed in Mumbai that Prabhas was not very comfortable with his media interactions.When the Saaho trailer was released, Prabhas could be seen mumbling to his team members nervously.
A source close to Prabhas says, “He doesn’t enjoy giving press interviews. In fact like two other Southern superstars Ajith and Vijay, Prabhas is seriously thinking of a no-interview policy.”
This embargo would have to wait till after Saaho.
Says a source close to the Saaho project, “Prabhas has no choice but to interact with the media until the release of Saaho. Too much is at stake. The film is releasing in four Indian languages,Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Kannada and would eventually be released in non-Indian languages as well. Prabhas is the face of Saaho. He cannot afford to act reclusive.”
Incidentally two of the most reclusive stars of Hollywood Bradd Pitt and Leonardo diCaprio have been seen everywhere promoting their new film Once Upon ATime In Hollywood. Prabhas would just have to grin and bear it.
Learning a few words in Hindi wouldn’t be a bad idea.He wouldn’t have to look blank as he did when a mediaperson in Mumbai asked him to say a few words in Hindi.
