Post Baahubali 2 success, Prabhas became household name in Bollywood. Rajamouli himself shared an incident on how Baahubali 2 changed the fortunes of Prabhas in Bollywood.
“Earlier when we went to Mumbai for the promotions of “Baahubali : The Beginning” at the press event, very few were interested to take photos of Prabhas and everyone were concentrating on Rana as he had already worked in Bollywood movies, But when we went for “Baahubali : The Conclusion” press event, as soon as Prabhas walked in to the room all the media persons stood up and were fighting to take selfies with Prabhas. That’s how he turned the tables” told Rajamouli
Obviously when you have such an immense recognition, all eyes would be eagerly waiting for your next move. However, instead of cashing that craze, Prabhas is taking his own sweet time in deciding about his upcoming projects after Saaho.
People who are watching this are comparing Prabhas with Tamil actor Siddharth. Even though Siddharth had worked in 5 movies in south industry, it was “Rang De Basanti” that had took him to national audience and opened him many doors and brought him vast amount of craze in Bollywood.
That was the time even actors such as Ram Charan and Allu Arjun used to mention their favorite actor as Siddharth, but he was not quick enough to utilize that opportunity and could'nt expand his audience base in Bollywood and eventually lost is fan base even in south. Hope Prabhas do not make the same mistakes and open his eyes before it’s too late.
