The team of Baahubali was in Kochi on Sunday as part of their promotional tour. While addressing fans and thanking them for their love and support, actor Prabhas expressed his desire to share screen space with Malayalam superstar Mohanlal. Reacting to a comment made by Kamal R Khan who felt Prabhas would be the ideal choice to play Bhima instead of Mohanlal in upcoming magnum opus The Mahabharata, Prabhas said that he’d be more than happy to act alongside the legendary actor.
“He is already playing the character (Bhima). If the makers have chosen him, it’s for a reason. I would love to share screen space with him provided I get an opportunity. I’m a huge fan of his work,” said Prabhas, whose response was received by full applause by audiences. In Kerala, where Baahubali 2 releases in Malayalam and Tamil, it will be open in around 300 screens and will have nearly 1500 shows on the first day.
There’s unprecedented craze for the film in Kerala where the first part of the franchise made a killing at the box-office. Trade pundits believe the movie will easily mint around Rs 5 crore gross from the first day in the state.
