Actor Prabhas has achieved pan Indian popularity after the stupendous success of the Baahubali franchise. The Telugu actor is now being wooed by Hindi film producers. Speaking to the daily supplement, Bombay Times, Prabhas said he feels actors from Hindi cinema are "more chilled out" than their south Indian counterparts.

Responding to a query whether the south actors are different in the way they interact with each other, the actor replied, “There might be some small regional differences, but they are all generally very cool. I think that Bollywood stars are more chilled out than actors in Tamil or Telugu cinema, though the new generation of actors (down South) are also more chilled out,"

Prabhas also praised producer Karan Johar, who seems to be keen on launching him in the Hindi film industry. Johar had distributed the Hindi dubbed version of the Baahubali films. 

"I made a good association with Karan Johar; if I want anything, I think I can ask him. He has helped us a lot. In fact, I met some actors (from the Hindi film industry) in Karan's house," said Prabhas.

The actor is currently filming the trilingual Saaho, being shot simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. The actor, though, is ready to do his next Hindi film already. Turns out, he had accepted a Hindi film three years ago. 

"I watch a lot of Hindi films; I live in Hyderabad, where 60% of the people speak in Hindi. I am getting good offers from Bollywood (Hindi film industry); I had okayed a script three years ago. It is a love story that I will do post Saaho," he said.
