Prabhas is in Quarantine After Return From The US. Guess What He is Doing?
Prabhas had gone to the US for the shoot of a romantic film
Baahubali star Prabhas who had been shooting in Georgia, USA for his next (untitled) film with director Radha Krishna Kumar is now in self-imposed quarantine. He is using the time to catch up on his sleep and to write a script which he intends to direct. This announcement of Prabhas’ self-isolation came a day after Bollywood singer Kanika Kumar was slammed for allegedly hiding her travel history ignoring the viral symptoms and partying and banking in Lucknow.
According to sources in Hyderabad, Prabhas who has no symptons of the Corona Virus so far, was advised to make public his self-imposed isolation to avoid any dispute that may come up regarding his travel and long stay in the US. Says a source, “Prabhas and his co-star are both in a self-imposed quarantine for two weeks. During this time Prabhas isn’t meeting anyone, not even his parents and uncles who mean the world to him.”
The Georgia schedule of Radha Krishna Kumar’s film had to be cut short and will resume after the global viral threat subsides. The film is being described as a pure love story, Prabhas’ first attempt at doing something unabashedly romantic. Sources in the know reveal Jaan, to be directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, would feature minimal action. “Prabhas feels his fans have had their fill of action in Saaho, at least for a while. Jaan will be a romantic film with a large number songs to be composed by Amit Trivedi.”
More significantly, there will be no Hindi version of Jaan. According to sources Prabhas is done with trying to woo the Hindi belt for now. “He will focus on his primary market for the next couple of films. The Hindi market can wait. Prabhas won’t lose his core audience for a pie in the sky,” says the source.
Prabhas' Saaho, which was released in six languages was not received too well, critically or commercially at the box office. The Hindi version of Saaho lost a huge amount of money, thereby providing a lesson to all actors from the non-Hindi language making a crossover into the mainstream.
