It is no coincidence that stories of Baahubali superstar Prabhas’s purported marriage withAnushka Shetty re-surfaced on the eve of her new release.
A friend of Prabhas smirks at the shaadi rumours as a “publicity stunt”
“It’s not Anushka doing this publicity. It’s some others who probably see marriage rumours as good promotion for her film. That apart, there is no truth at all to the rumours. Prabhasand Anushka are only friends,nothing more. They get along well and talk to each other about their projects.She even seeks his advice before signing a film. But that’s about it. There is no relationship beyond friendship,” says the friend.
According to this friend Prabhas’ uncle who has been hinting at a marriage for Prabhas is not wrong.
“But it will be an arranged marriage for Prabhas,” says the source.
Prabhas, says the friend, is reluctant to even talk to women. “And this kind of loose gossip makes him even more wary of female company. The minute a female co-star or fan strikes up a conversation Prabhas excuses himself. You won’t see Prabhas flirting with his heroines. If you visit the sets of his new film Saaho he keeps his distance from his co-star ShradhaKapoor , although she’s teaching Hindi and he’s teaching her Telugu. Professionally he’s as close to Shradha at the moment as he’s to Anushka. But the Telugu press loves to see him as a couple with Anushka.Lekin aisa kuch nahin hai(there’s nothing like that).”
Apparently Anushka and Prabhas have decided to keep a distance until her new filmBhagamathie releases.
“Just to avoid speculation,” says the source.
