If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, KGF Chapter 1 (2018) director Prashanth Neel has been offered whopping Rs30 crore to direct Prabhas in a pan-Indian project.

Reports have emerged that Mythri Movie Makers have approached Prashanth with an offer to direct Prabhas. Talks are still underway with Prashanth and the production house is apparently ready to offer him Rs30 crore to helm the project.

Last seen on screen in Saaho (2019), which went on to have a lukewarm response at the box office; Prabhas is currently shooting for his next Telugu project which is tentatively titled Amour.

Amour, being directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, was officially launched a year ago in a ceremony in Hyderabad. To be predominantly shot abroad, the film was supposed to start rolling from November 2018 but had to be postponed due to Saaho, which couldn’t be wrapped up as planned on time. 

At the time of the launch, Prabhas took to Facebook and wrote that he’s quite excited about the project.

Talking about the project, Radha Krishna had told reporters: “At the moment, all I can say is that it’s going to be a love story which will be shot on a lavish scale. We’ve finalised Europe where most of the shooting will happen. The regular shoot will begin very soon.” 

Pooja Hegde has been signed as the leading lady. She had revealed that she and Prabhas will undergo a brief workshop in Mumbai before commencing shooting for the project.

Prashanth, on the other hand, is busy working on KGF 2, which is scheduled to hit the screens next year. In a recent media interaction, lead actor Yash said that KGF 2 will be bigger and even more exciting than the first part. The second part features Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist.

As per the reports, Prashanth and Prabhas may join hands for a project not before the second half of 2020.
