Apparently, KJo was keen to launch  Prabhas in Hindi cinema . But his asking fees of Rs 20 Crore is proving to be too expensive for the producers. As per reports, a source told an entertainment portal, “After Baahubali and its sequel, Karan was keen to launch Prabhas in Hindi cinema. But on seeing the price he was asking, Karan has decided to abandon the idea of launching him.”

"Prabhas had devoted five years of his life to the two Baahubali films and it was only fair that he would want to cash in on his new success,” says the source, adding that Prabhas went ahead and asked for a new, inflated price. “But the price he asked for was staggering. While it was okay for him to ask and get his desired price — reportedly in the vicinity of Rs 20 Crore — in Telugu cinema, it was unrealistic for Prabhas to expect that kind of remuneration in Bollywood. No South Indian actor, not even Rajinikanth, has that kind of commercial clout in Hindi cinema. Prabhas has clearly out-priced himself from Bollywood,” said the source.

A few days ago, Prabhas starrer Saaho’s first look was out. Seeing Prabhas walk with his face half covered has left us intrigued. It’s got us wondering what the film will have in store for us. Especially after treating us with something as grand and magnificent as Baahubali, fans are rather expecting a lot from Prabhas in Saaho too.
