Prabhas’s latest film Mirchi has become a big hit. His next film is an epic film Baahubali to be directed by SS Rajamouli. Prabhas has recently had chitchat with scribes. Here are excerpts of an interview -


How are you savoring the success?
I do enjoy with my friends whenever my film becomes a hit. Since my friends and cousins are producers of this film, I am enjoying it a lot more.

How do you react to the comment of ‘one-man-show’?
Film becomes hit only because of team work. If you call Mirchi as Prabhas’s one-man-show, you should also credit my flops to me as one-man-shows. I am just a part of a film and I am very happy that way.

How did Mirchi happen?
I was supposed to do Rajamouli’s film ¾ years back and he has started Eega project. Then I accepted Rebel film. Eega got delayed by 8 months for release. During that period my producers have asked me to listen to Koratala Siva’s script. I got hooked by the interval point and climax. I expected him to come up with a dialogue oriented narration as he is a writer, but he has given scene-oriented and screenplay-oriented natation. That climax was new for me and I gave a go-ahead.

As an actor you put in maximum effort into a film, but some of them become hits and some of them become flops. How do you take it?
I don’t like it if my film becomes a flop. I feel that editing is as important as shooting the film. A film becomes better with good editing. All I look for are 3 emotional scenes in a film that lock audiences’ attention into the film. For a film to become a hit – story should be good, director should execute it well during shoot and post-production should help the movie.

Entertainment in terms of comedy orientation has become a key for Telugu film box office success in current scenario. What care do you take during this aspect?
If you observe my films, I have started comedy/entertainment orientation in my characterization and dialogues from the film Bujiigadu. All my films since then have comedy quotient in ample proportions. Sometimes I request my directors to have more entertaining characterization for me.

There are rumors floating around that your marriage is fixed with a Bhimavaram girl?
Please tell me who that girl is. I am also curious to know. I might get married in the next year (2014).

Your styling and looks are good in Mirchi?
My friend Baski is the one who styled for all the characters in Mirchi film. Audiences have liked my formals in the movie. Baski has been taking care of my looks right from Bujjigadu film. The film is looking colorful and vibrant because of the cinematographer Madhie. I saw Hindi film Shaitan and got impressed by the camerawork of Madhie. It’s like watching a French film. Initially he wanted to try digital camera for the film, but I asked him to go ahead with a real camera. However, he used a digital camera to shoot Yahoo song in Mirchi. It’s pretty good.

Are you open to Multistarrers?
Yes. I am always open if the script demands it.

Tell us about your next film Baahubali with Rajamouli?
Rajamouli has become a huge director of national reputation. We have been talking about our film for the past ¾ years. He has narrated me around 6/7 lines so far and he has finally confirmed Baahubali story. He has made me put through a couple of photo sessions with the bearded getup. There will be few more photo sessions before he finalizes the look. I am going through rigorous physical training for Baahubali. I had few action choreographed training with Vietnamese fighters recently. This is just the first round. I will have to go through several further rounds to prepare for the character I am going to do.

Rajamouli being a perfectionist and Baahubali being a mega epic venture, this film might take a lot of time than one commits?
My only aim now is to satisfy Rajamouli with my hard work and preparation.

Mirchi is doing extremely well in Nizam and it’s opening a big market for you in USA?
My first film Eeswar has old city backdrop. Varsham has Warangal backdrop. I am happy that my films are really doing well in Nizam. I also thank overseas movie lovers for accepting and appreciating Mirchi film. As a token of gratitude I am going to USA and meet Telugu movie lovers in a few cities this weekend.

Do you like to be called ‘young rebel star’?
I want to be called as Prabhas. I didn’t want young rebel star tag and I requested my producers to get away from it for Mirchi title cards. But, fans love that tag. I am keeping that title only for the sake of fans.

You have Mirchi doing exceedingly well now and your next film Baahubali is going to be humongous. Are you in race for ‘No. 1’ spot?
I don’t think we are qualified enough for ‘No.1’ spot by having a couple of quick hits. It takes decades of consistent box office performance to claim the No. 1 spot. I am not in race for No. 1 spot.
