After the tremendous success of the Baahubali franchise, which transcended boundaries of South India and became a phenomenon all over the world, Prabhas has gained a lot of Hindi-speaking fans as well. Soon after Baahubali’s box office record breaking stride, rumours started doing the rounds about Prabhas’ Bollywood debut. Reports stated that SS Rajamouli and Karan Johar are joining hands to present Prabhas in Bollywood in a larger than life way.
However, due of lack of confirmation, these rumours died a natural death. And now, we have learnt something that is making us really excited! As per latest reports, for his next film Saaho, Prabhas has decided to learn Hindi. The action-cum-romantic thriller is a trilingual being made in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. It can be recalled that for the Hindi version of Baahubali, actor Sharad Kelkar had lent his voice for Prabhas. However, things are all set to change now.
