First week opening collections of ‘Rebel’ projected Prabhas as a promising BO Hero who can cold sweat Tollywood, if a right film is selected. On the flip side, disastrous effects of over budget and the way producers will come on roads is also well exhibited by Pulla Rao and Bhagawan yesterday. Thanks to this enlightening and educative lesson which ‘Rebel’ taught the big players of Telugu industry.
Now, this same discussion may be quite useful in applicability for Rajamouli who is gearing up to risk Rs.70-80 Crores of budget on Prabhas. Unlike other star heroes who established a strong market with in and out side of Tollywood, hero Prabhas is unknown to many on crossing the border of AP. So, maximum of the budget recovery or profits have to be estimated only from Telugu version. Well, ‘Makkhi’ also proved that Rajamouli isn’t a brand of popularity in Bollywood. So, a combination of Prabhas and Rajamouli might be a deadly one just to Telugu and 70 Crores may not to be a wise decision, is just one of the views expressed by movie lovers.
