Prabhas’ Game Plan Decoded!


Every actor, star has a game plan. Young Rebel Star Prabhas too is no exception. However, his carefully well thought-out strategy in making his dream of a Pan India star is the talking point in industry circles. Several south actors had in the past aspired to be pan Indian stars, but failed. Prabhas is now aspiring one such big aspiration. Certainly, the path is going to be a risky one and challenging one. While SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali’s humongous success gave an advantage for Prabhas, the major challenge for the actor lies in cementing the position. Well, Prabhas’ immediate film after Baahubali – Saaho – may not have met its high expectations. At the same time, it also hasn’t closed doors for Prabhas. The blessing in disguise for Prabhas is Saaho did quite well in Hindi-belt compared to South.

It is clearly evident that Hindi audiences – especially in regions like Bihar – have totally accepted and owned Prabhas as their actor. This gave the much-needed mass and action image for Prabhas. The actor’s market has also expanded quite well. This is why Hindi producers – who has high stakes in industry – are betting big on Prabhas’ films. While the mythological drama ADIPURUSH with director Om Raut is expected to be made on whopping Rs 400 crore budget, the other day KGF director Prashant Neel and producer Vijay had announced that their next – SALAAR – with Prabhas is going to be one of the highest-budget films.

Even Prabhas’ ongoing film – RADHE SHYAM – is being made on a high budget and the makers had spent a bomb on a single action episode in the film. And Prabhas and Nag Ashwin’s film feature Bollywood’s biggest stars like Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone. This is very clear that the big stars of the industry have accepted Prabhas.

All these films of the actor are not just made on pan-India scale, but all these films are going to be made at a blitzkrieg speed.

Thus, Prabhas signed big-budget pan-India films with almost all top directors in Tollywood, Bollywood, and Sandalwood. All the three movies will have equal craze and will have a release in multiple languages including Hindi. The marketing and promotion plan for these films are also huge like any other star-studded Bollywood film. Prabhas game plan is very clear and his ambition to establish himself as a pan Indian actor is laudable. While many South actors in the past had aspired for such an image, but the approach and the game plan of Prabhas is what makes him different from the rest.
