Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is surely one of the most anticipated films of this year and given the record-breaking statistics it has shown last year in box office, similar reaction is expected in case of this sequel too. Prabhas, who rose to fame both nationally and globally because of this film, has become a household name pretty fast given the release, is a few days away. With a grand audio launch, they have set the tone for the film and now, the DOP has given a statement worth gaping at which has increased the expectation even more.
The unbelievable statement
In the audio launch, the whole star cast came together including Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Sathyaraj, Rajamouli himself and also the distributor of the Hindi version, none other than Karan Johar. However, K K Senthil Kumar , the DOP who worked tirelessly for the film, was also there and he was called on the stage to share his thoughts. Of course, he was all praise for the Baahubali set as to how brilliant the whole experience was. However, he said that Prabhas currently is a bigger star than any of the Khans from Bollywood.
The reaction after that
Before the statement, however, it was pretty clear that Senthil Kumar was in mood for praise as he announced that Rajamouli is the James Cameron of Tollywood, but it is the other way round. Obviously, that was met with a lot of cheers. However, no one was prepared for the next statement. When he said that sensational thing, everyone went wild and there was names sung in favour of Prabhas. He was further hailed as the biggest star that India has produced till now and also, the film is going to do unprecedented business breaking all records there is.
Similar reactions from others
Senthil pointed out that Prabhas does not show how big a star he is unlike the Khans but you can only understand that once he is out of the set. It is a sentiment that resonated by the production designer of the film Sabu Cyril too which proves that Senthil kumar was not exaggerating much. His claim is more grounded in truth since he already has the experience of working with all the Khans and Amitabh Bachchan too so it is entirely possible that Prabhas may well emerge as a star of national and global repute unlike no other.
