After the success of Baahubali 2, Prabhas became a household name and almost every filmmaker is eager to work with him. Recently, rumours also surfaced that director Rohit Shetty expressed his desire to work along with Prabhas and he would be casting him in his next project. Putting all such rumours to rest, Rohit said that there is no fact in this news.
There were rumours that Rohit was keen to make a Hindi film with Prabhas, which would be the Telugu star's Bollywood debut. Asked about working with Prabhas, Rohit said, "No not at all. I was in Spain when this news started coming in, I don't know from where!"
The 43-year-old filmmaker is currently working on the fourth instalment of his comedy franchise Golmaal, which stars Ajay Devgn, Parineeti Chopra, Tabu, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Kemmu and Tusshar Kapoor.
The director said that the film is "shaping up very well and is all set for a good Diwali release". The Dilwale director is back on the small screen with the Colors action-reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi season 8.
Rohit said that over the years he has become comfortable with hosting shows on TV, and the only challenge is to take the show a notch higher.
"Once you set a mark on TV, it becomes easier. The audience wants to see you as a host. If I am coming back after one season, the challenge is how do we take it on a different level. Stunts have to be tougher than what we did earlier. It shouldn't be monotonous," Rohit said.
The celebrity contestants taking part in the show are Geeta Phogat, Hina Khan, Lopamudra Raut, Manveer Gurjar, Shantanu Maheshwari, Shiny Doshi, Rithvik Dhanjani, Ravi Dubey, Nia Sharma, Monica Dogra, Shibani Dandekar and Karan Wahi.
The show goes on air from July 22.
