Mumbai: For Prabhas and director Sujeeth who are collaborating on 'Saaho,' it is a bigger challenge than just the need to do a decent follow-up to the biggest hit of Indian cinema.
They have to disprove a myth in Tollywood that the leading men who work with Rajamouli deliver duds after a hit with him.
A senior Telugu filmmaker divulges, “It’s a widely-held belief. Silly but scary. Unfortunately, the box office statistics support this grandma’s myth.”
After Jr NTR’s blockbusters 'Student No 1' and 'Simhadri,' he faced a number of crippling failures.
Likewise, Ravi Teja’s blockbuster 'Vikramarkurdu' was followed by a flop like 'Khatarnak.'
After Prabhas’ 'Chatrapathi' came a disaster like 'Pournami.' Though no one is saying it aloud, there is a cloud of uncertainty hanging over Prabhas’s next film in the trade circles.
Prabhas and Sujeeth are determined to prove the naysayers wrong....
