As part of the promotions of Radhe Shyam, Prabhas was asked if the third installment of Baahubali will happen anytime soon. “Baahubali is a film I will always hold very close to my heart. The kind of impact it has left in my career can never be matched. Whether Baahubali 3 will happen or not is something I don’t know. But I definitely can’t do immediately, but it has to happen, it will only if Rajamouli wants it,” Prabhas told Hindustan Times as part of a group interaction.
In the Baahubali series, Prabhas was seen playing Amarendra Baahubali and his son Shivudu (Mahendra in the Hindi version). The two-part action-drama also starred Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Rana Daggubati, Ramya Krishnan, among others.
