Tollywood’s Rebel star Prabhas is in the headlines for his upcoming high-octane action thriller Salaar, helmed by KGF fame Prashanth Neel. Excitement among cine lovers is mounting high with every passing day. Even fans speculate it could be bigger than KGF Chapter 2. Everyone is hopeful that Salaar might save Darling’s sinking ship.

Adipurush, the last release of Prabhas got surrounded with controversies over various reasons. The movie turned out to be a debacle. Moreover, his previous releases including Radhe Shyam and Saaho also failed at the box office and couldn’t impress a section of the audience, unlike his benchmark movies, i.e. Baahubali: The Beginning and  Baahubali: The Conclusion.

While fans had pinned high hopes on Adipurush, following the box office results, everyone got disheartened. Now, reports are abuzz that Prabhas has taken a major decision.  Rumours are also abuzz that the box office results of his Bollywood movies have also affected his project with Pathaan helmer Siddharth Anand. If the reports are anything to go by, the decision might bring an end to his Bollywood journey.

As per reports, Adipurush was made at a whooping budget and is touted as the most expensive Indian movie till date. However, despite a huge budget and Prabhas in the lead, the movie tanked at the box office. Thus, the pan-India star has decided not to work with Bollywood filmmakers. As of now, Prabhas is in no mood to listen to the scripts from Bollywood filmmakers. Rather, he is focusing on some projects from the South.

Further, speculations are rife that Prabhas has put the rumoured movie with Siddharth and has returned his fee of Rs 65 crore to Mythri Productions. However, certain reports also stated that the dates of Prabhas and Siddharth were not matching which finally forced the stakeholders to part ways.

Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying,“ “Siddharth Anand and Prabhas are two of the busiest people in the Indian Film Industry at this point in time. They have their diaries blocked for the next few years, and are not able to find a common window for their collaboration.”

Well, if the reports are anything to go by, Prabhas’ decision of putting projects with Bollywood filmmakers on hold might be a hint towards ending his journey in B Town. However, releasing south movies pan-India dubbed in Hindi can yield good results as it did for the Baahubali franchise and certain other movies from the south.
