Pan Indian hero Prabhas is surprising everyone with his list of upcoming films. He is working with Prasanth Neel on ‘Salaar’ while his ‘Radhe Shyam’ is ready for release. ‘Adipurush’ is in the post-production stage while Nag Ashwin’s ‘Project K’ is in the making. Interestingly, all these movies are being made on a massive budget of over 150 crores. Some of them are even costing over 300 crores. He announced a project with Sandeep Reddy Vanga named ‘Spirit’ and there is a huge talk that he may work with entertaining director Maruthi on a movie called ‘Raja Deluxe’.
While all the other films are made on a grand scale with concepts like mythology, action, science fiction and others, Maruthi’s film is expected to be a horror-comedy. This genre is usually picked by small or medium heroes. We do not see star heroes opting for horror comedies quite often but it is strange to hear that a pan-Indian hero like Prabhas gave a green signal to such a project.
Apparently, a huge set is being built in Hyderabad and major portions will be picturized in it. Also, this movie will be having three heroines and fans are having mixed feelings about it. While some are excited about the fact that Prabhas will be acting in a completely different film, there are some of them who worry that it may have a ‘Kanchana’ type of flavor. Some netizens are trolling that three heroines and horror-comedy genre shouts ‘Kanchana’ franchise and they are sincerely hoping that Maruthi delivers quality content rather than over-the-top histrionics and artificial characters. Let us wait and see what happens.
