Prabhas and Rajamouli’s Films Will Not Clash. Here’s how They Avoided It
There were reports that Rajamouli’s RRR and Prabhas’ next film, to be directed by Radha Krishna Kumar will have a clash at the box office
They may have gone their separate ways. But they continue to be the best of friends, in spite of reports to the contrary. We are talking about SS Rajamouli and Prabhas who created history in Baahubali and then when everyone thought they were going to reunite, they decided to go their separate ways. While Rajamouli is shooting with Ramcharan Teja in RRR, Prabhas is heavily into his 20th feature film directed by Radha Krishna Kumar.
Prabhas has already shot most of the film and it’s likely that his film and Rajamouli’s RRR (subjected to several serious delays since its launch) will be completed at around the same time. But sorry, for those anticipating a big box-office clash, there is disappointing news. The Baahubali director and actor are very much on the same page about the release of their respective films. According to a source, there will be no clash between Prabhas’s film and Rajamouli’s film. “Rajmouli and Prabhas will make sure of that. They’ve decided there will be a gap of at least two months between their films,” says the informed source.
While Rajamouli’s delayed film is now looking at a January 2021 release, Prabhas’ film which was tentatively scheduled for a Pongal 2021 release will now be released later in 2021.
Prabhas was seen in Saaho last year and there was a lot of anticipation about it being a blockbuster. Unfortunately, the film tanked and did not receive any critical acclaim either.
