Prabhas talks about his marriage
During his speech, Prabhas’ fans, in the crowd, asked him when he will get married. “Marriage? Someday, I’ll get married in Tirupati only,” Prabhas said. For some time now, Prabhas and his Adipurush co-star Kriti Sanon have been rumoured to be dating but they have denied the same.
Prabhas spoke about Chiranjeevi
At the event, Prabhas spoke about how actor Chiranjeevi told him he is extremely lucky to be part of a project which is based on Ramayana. “Once, Chiranjeevi sir asked me if I’m doing Ramayana. ‘Yes, sir’, I told him. ‘That’s your blessing. Not everyone is lucky enough to work on such a project. You’ve got the opportunity’,” Prabhas said.
Prabhas on Om Raut
Adipurush marks the maiden collaboration between Prabhas and director Om Raut. The actor showered high praise on Om and his team for working tirelessly for the last 7-8 months. “After the first glimpse of Adipurush was released, Om and his team worked tirelessly on the final trailer for 7-8 months. They barely slept for an hour or two every night. It was like they fought a war. Om, you’re a rockstar for making this happen,” he added.
Prabhas on Raghava
On playing the role of Raghava, Prabhas had said in a statement, “Every role and every character comes with its own challenges, but portraying a character like this comes with tremendous responsibility and pride. I am very excited to portray this character from our epic, especially the way Om has designed it. I am sure the youth of our country will shower all their love on our film.”
