Wanted Bollywood A-Lister Heroine For Prabhas in Adipurush

Is Deepika Being Paid  As Much As  Prabhas ?
Written by Subhash K . Jha

Prabhas is  no  longer interested in projecting himself  as a Telugu  actor.  And why should he?  After Baahubali—and never  mind the underwhelming  response  to  his last pan-India release Saaho— Prabhas  is  building himself as a  national superstar .And for this  his  films need  Bollywood’s A-listers to be paired  opposite.

In  Ashwin Nag’s  film  Prabhas is paired  with  Deepika Padukone.The hunt for  an  A-lister heroine   opposite Prabhas in  Om Raut’s  Adipurush is now on. Sources say Deepika  was  the  first choice to play Sita  opposite Prabhas’ Rama.

“But she’s already doing  Ashwin Nag’s film with  Prabhas. They can’t be paired in two  back-to-back films,” says a source close to Prabhas.

At  the same time  actresses like Rakul Preet Singh, Kiara Advani and Pooja Hegde who have worked in Telugu cinema  can’t into Sita’s mould.

“It’s a problem. Deepika was  the perfect choice. No  other  A-lister seem to fit into Sita’s role,” says the source.
