Rumors are abuzz that SS Rajamouli has approached Tamil hero Prashanth to play the lead role for a straight Tamil flick, which would go to floors after the release of his ambitious project Bahubali. Adding some spice to the reports, rumormongers have been speculating that Sonam Kapoor would be paired opposite this charming actor as the leading lady.
Putting an end to the baseless reports, SS Rajamouli denied having any plans of making a film with Prashanth in the lead and wondered how such speculations would start from!
Prashanth‘s last release Ponnar Shankar got lukewarm response at the Box Office. This handsome hero has been struggling to score a hit since few years and he is not even in the list of Top 15 Tamil heroes at the moment. The news about SS Rajamouli‘s film might be the result of PR work to give some mileage to Prashanth.
On the other hand, SS Rajamouli is busy with the pre-production work of Bahubali which stars Prabhas, Rana and Anushka from the past few months. While his team is looking after the star hunt process, the tough task maker is scouting locations for the period drama. As the budget limit for Bahubali is Rs 100 crore, SS Rajamouli is planing to shoot it on a larger scale to reach out to wider section of audience.
