Talking about how she got the role, Pooja revealed, “The director (Radha Krishna Kumar) and producers (Vamsi Krishna and U Pramod of UV Creations) came to me for the narration. It’s a thorough entertainer,” she shared in a chat with Mid-Day. Prabhas is a sensation not just in India but internationally as well after the magnanimous success of Baahubali. Is Pooja worried about meeting expectations or intimated by her co-star’s super stardom? “For me, it was intimidating to work with Hrithik as well. But I managed that fine. I don’t look at this film as something that should intimidate me,” said Pooja adding that the film will help her prove herself, “It’s an opportunity to prove myself. Prabhas has done that already, it’s my turn now.” Also Read - Prabhas 20: Prabhas And Pooja Hegde Starrer First Look And Title to be Unveiled on THIS Date
Sources suggest that the shoot will start from next month onwards. Prabhas has been busy shooting for Saaho. The actor knows that the expectations are high and so does his director Sujeeth P Singh and therefore the crew is leaving no stone unturned to make this action thriller a complete entertainer. But the film is taking longer than they thought to be made due to all the technical aspects, VFX and high-end action sequences where international action choreographers are involved.

Therefore, Prabhas, who initially wanted to only focus on Saaho, decided to start shooting his next #Prabhas20. While the actress just recently got confirmed, fans on social media had been wishing for their Sweety Anushka Shetty to join the project. They had been left disappointed once already after the Bhaagamathie actress lost the leading lady role to Shraddha Kapoor. They now wanted Prabhas and Anushka Shetty to come together in this out and out romantic film #Prabhas20. Guess, they will have to wait a little longer to see their Amarendra Baahubali and Devasena recreate the same magic on the big screen again.
