Actor Prabhas is busy promoting his latest film, and the one question he's always asked is about his marriage

Prabhas talks about his experience in Mumbai, way before he became a popular star. Vada-pav is his favourite street food and when he travelled by a local train to VT station, he saw people running not walking! That image still remains in his mind.

Fast forward to 2022, he’s now a big star, in Mumbai for the promotions of his film Radhey Shayam.

Excerpts form an interview:

Your impression of  Mumbai, during your earlier visits, when not a star.

I and a few friends would come to Mumbai for fun. We had friends here. Nobody recognised me so we used to go to the beach, eat street food, etc. Mumbai has a lot of energy. First time, when I was traveling in the train I met my cousin. He was going to Mumbai somewhere near VT station where he was staying. What surprised me was that people here were not walking; they are running!
In Hyderabad we are laidback — I never saw anything like this there.

Now, I come to Mumbai often. Have eaten vada pav many times — today too I relished a nice, spicy vada pav with chillies.

After the film promotions, I went to sleep.

After Baahubali, we hear you got marriage proposals from more than 5000 women!

That’s the confusion — if you get too many proposals you do nothing.

When do you plan to get married?

I’m sure I will get married. But when marriage will happen I don’t know. My mother wants me to get married, we have this discussion at home and I had promised her that I will think of marriage after the release of Baahubali.

Will it be an arranged marriage?

Love marriage.

You are now a global star. What does success and stardom mean to you now?

Personally I believe in hard work but after Baahubali I felt ‘Oh! Destiny does exist’. It’s too big to understand fate – destiny.

The effect of Baahubali was huge. 1: 1000! — Suddenly  from Tollywood to Bollywood, it’s not easy to absorb. It took a lot of time to sink in.

What are the things you look for in a script that attracts you? Especially now as a pan India actor.

The toughest part is choosing  the script. It’s very difficult to find a script which can be loved all over the country. Presently only 3 films have happened – KGF, Baahubali and Pushpa that were hugely successful and loved by the audiences.
We are indeed going to make a lot of pan India films but it’s a herculean task. Sometimes a film does well in Mumbai but maybe not in Telugu. We are all in a confused state right now. We will take 4/5 years to understand what clicks pan India.
