No sooner did Baahubali 2 hit the cinemas on April 27, the popularity of Prabhas has increased by manifolds. Several brands are simply going crazy over him and, are ready to offer huge sum of money for endorsing their products.
However, the handsome hunk doesn’t seem to like the idea of brand endorsements so much. In fact, Prabhas has reportedly rejected a huge brand endorsement worth Rs 18 crore.
“Yes, Prabhas has been approached by several brands. Although he hasn’t agreed to any of them as of now, he has declined a whopping 18 crore worth of brand endorsement,” according to Prabhas’s spokesperson.
The SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali effect has surely created huge opportunities for the actor. However, Prabhas has his own commitments first and money doesn’t seem to attract him so much.
At the moment, the actor is holidaying in the US. A source close to the actor informs that once the actor is back, he may or may not take up some of the endorsements that are coming his way.
“But, he certainly wants to concentrate on his upcoming trilingual film, Saaho, shooting for which begins in July. He is also getting a few Bollywood offers from top directors and production houses and he’s reading the scripts,” adds the source.
Recently, Rajamouli had also revealed in an interview that Prabhas, during the shoot of Baahubali 2, declined an endorsement worth 10 crore, as he wanted to concentrate on Baahubali: The Conclusion.
Till now, the 37-year-old actor has only accepted to endorse a leading vehicle brand.
