Pan-India star Prabhas and Pooja Hegde-starrer Radhe Shyam has piqued the audience's interest since its announcement. The upcoming film has been making a lot of noise for its teaser and the lead actor’s first looks which were shared by the makers on the occasion of Prabhas’ birthday last year. Recently, several media reports also spoke of a rift between lead stars Prabhas and Pooja Hegde. And the movie garnered attention yet again.
But we have learnt that there is no truth to these rumours and fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Interestingly, UV Creations, the producers of Radhe Shyam themselves have put an end to all the speculation about Pooja’s ‘unprofessional behaviour’ on the sets that reportedly irked Prabhas. Rumours went a step ahead and suggested that Prabhas refused to speak to Pooja because of her high-handed attitude and tendency to show up late for the shoot.
UV Creations have now called the rumours ‘baseless’ and said in a statement that the two actors ‘have great respect and admiration for each other’.

“These reports are completely baseless. Prabhas and Pooja Hedge have great respect and admiration for each other. In fact, they share a great camaraderie off-screen and that has translated into some magical onscreen chemistry,” UV Creations was quoted as saying in a statement by The Times of India.
“Pooja has always been very punctual for her shoots. She is very easy to work with. These rumours are merely a figment of someone’s imagination. All is well between the leading pair and the entire team is very excited to bring audiences a theatrical experience they won’t forget.”
Radhe Shyam is directed by Radha Krishna Kumar and the multi-lingual love story is set in the backdrop of 1970s Europe.
On the work front, Pooja has multiple films across various film industries including 'Cirkus' alongside Ranveer Singh, 'Bhaijaan' with Salman Khan, 'Acharyaa' with Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan, 'Most Eligible Bachelor', 'Beast' opposite Thalapathy Vijay as well as '#SSMB28' with Mahesh Babu in the pipeline.
Prabhas, on the other hand, has 'Adipurush', 'Salaar' and an untitled Nag Ashwin film in the pipeline.
