Karan Johar takes a witty dig at ‘Baahubali’ actor Prabhas


The ‘Baahubali’ actor Prabhas was supposed to be launched by filmmaker Karan Johar in his production venture but it is now learnt that Karan Johar has dropped the idea of launching the southern star in Bollywood due to his exorbitant fee.

Karan Johar’s clever tweet hinted that all is not well between him and the ‘Baahubali’ actor.

Karan Johar tweeted: "Dear Ambition...if you have to achieve your full potential stay away from your arch nemesis....Comparison! [sic.]"

"Prabhas had devoted five years of his life to the two Baahubali films and it was only fair that he would want to cash in on his new success. But the price he asked for was staggering. While it was okay for him to ask and get his desired price — reportedly in the vicinity of Rs 20 crore — in Telugu cinema, it was unrealistic for Prabhas to expect that kind of remuneration in Bollywood. No South Indian actor, not even Rajinikanth, has that kind of commercial clout in Hindi cinema," DNA quoted a source as saying.

"Prabhas has clearly out-priced himself from Bollywood. After Baahubali and its sequel, Karan was keen to launch Prabhas in Hindi cinema. But on seeing the price he was asking, Karan has decided to abandon the idea of launching him," the source added. 

Prabhas reportedly charged Rs 30 crore for his upcoming film ‘Saaho’ starring Shraddha Kapoor in the female lead.
