Prabhudheva and Prabhas share more than just the ‘P’s (in their names) and queues (in the theatres). They’ve been close friends for many years. And now Prabhu is all set to finally direct his friend, as soon as Prabhas is done with his current project, Saaho.
Says Prabhu warmly, “Prabhas is a dear friend. I’ve known him from the time he entered Tamil-Telugu cinema. In fact, he sportingly made a cameo appearance in my Hindi film Action Jackson. I’d love to direct him, but not because Baahubali has happened.”
Awkward to dip his hand into the famed Baahubali pie, Prabhu wanted to wait until Prabhas was free.
“No point in just doing a film together because it makes business sense. I have been thinking of doing a movie with Prabhas for a while now. Right now, he’s busy with his next Telugu film Saaho. We will do our film together after that,” says Prabhu.
He is all praise for the Saaho director. “Sujeeth is just a boy, but his first film Run Raja Run was an absolute delight. There are lots of excellent young directors emerging from the South,” concludes Prabhu.
