Despite Baahubali’s humongous success, Prabhas takes a pay cut for Saaho

After the blockbuster success of Baahubali: The Conclusion, Rebel Star Prabhas is arriving on the silver screen after more than two years for his upcoming multi-lingual quintessential venture Saaho. Despite the record-breaking business of Baahubali, Prabhas took a pay cut for Saaho. Explaining the reason, he told, “Bahubali has set the bar high, but Saaho was a Rs 250 crore film, so I knew I couldn’t charge my usual remuneration. I started out with a 20 per cent cut. Then, the film went slightly over and though my friends were ready to pay up, I couldn’t take their money knowing they were putting in so much without thinking of what they’d earn.”

Prabhudheva recently met Prabhas, The Indian Jackson had got his actor-friend Prabhas to do a special appearance in the dance number in the Ajay Devgn-starrer, Action Jackson. “Yes, but I never saw the film,” Prabhas reveals, admitting that he hasn’t seen Baaghi either, which was reportedly inspired by his Varsham. But he has seen and loved Dangal. “What an inspiring story!” he exclaims. Can he see himself doing a remake of the wrestling drama? Bahubali shrugs, “I don’t know if I can carry it off. Aamir (Khan) was superb!”

The actor also revealed that he still feels surreal with the response he got for Baahubali. “I am still wondering if it (franchise) really happened, it’s surreal. A few months ago, Karthikeya, Rajamouli’s son and a friend, called to inform that Skyfall, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Bahubali 1 and 2 will be screened at London’s Royal Albert Hall in October in the ‘10 Years of Films in Concert’ series with live orchestra. Excited, I told him I want to be there too, feel a part of the magnum opus again.”
