Betting big on Prabhas
Rebel star Prabhas may not be a threat to the current top four heroes now. However, he has the potential to burst into the top 4. He is yet to score a huge hit after Chatrapathi. Time was not in favor of Prabhas after Chatrapathi and he failed to capitalize on it. Although he bagged hits with Darling and Mr. Perfect, they are not groundbreaking hits.
Therefore, Prabhas is due for a huge hit to announce his name in the big league. Looks like the business circles are sensing that blockbuster in Rebel. Buyers have been investing big in this film. Rebel has been doing the best ever pre release business for Prabhas. In Nizam the film was sold on par with top league heroes.
Lawrence's successful track record is coming handy for Rebel. If this film proves to be highly successful and rakes in an excess of 35 crores share from the theatricals, then Prabhas should be considered as the hero in race for top slot. Why because Prabhas has Rajamouli film to follow up and if Rebel hits bull's eye, then Rajamouli's film will help him to go that extra mile!
