- Prabhas says actors also have a 'shelf life'
- He said Baahubali was "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity"
- Prabhas' next film is Saaho with Shraddha Kapoor
The actor said the two-part fantasy drama was an "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" and he was aware that the grand scale of the project demanded a certain level of dedication. Prabhas wants to build upon his success and take his career forward with projects that have universal appeal, something that Baahubali achieved.
"Most of my projects now will have a universal appeal. Regional cinema is different, so now I am trying to choose stories that cater to my audiences across the country. I will do stories which most of the audiences like," he said.
Given his pan-India appeal, there has been a lot of speculation about Prabhas' Bollywood debut. "I am definitely interested in doing films in Bollywood. And not only in Hindi, I am open to working anywhere in the country, even if it is Punjabi. I will do films in any of the languages, provided the script is good. The region and the language don't matter."
The actor said his aim as an actor is to deliver mainstream entertaining fare. "I want my films to be entertaining, not comedy, but something which is gripping. In future, I may do a dark film but currently entertainment is the main criterion."
Prabhas, who is currently working on Saaho, which also stars Bollywood actor Shraddha Kapoor, said the team has shot for around 50 days. The actor will be joining Shraddha soon for a month long schedule.
The film is expected to release this year.
