Ever since Baahubali 2 released worldwide, there have been murmurs about the Prabhas and Anushka Shetty linkages. Rumour mills have worked overtime speculating if they are in a relationship. When Saaho’s casting was being debated, Anushka was thought to be a top contender. The two share a crackling onscreen chemistry and have worked in five films together. Hence, it wasn’t a far-fetched idea.
In the Telugu film industry, it has long been speculated that the duo is romantically involved. However, both have consistently denied it.
Now, speaking to Navbharat Times, Prabhas has opened up about his supposed relationship with Anushka. He has claimed that they have known each other for nine years and are good friends. However, he also added that given how strong the rumour is , there are times when he too believes that there is something between them.
“When we first worked together we had decided that at no cost we would allow rumours of our linkup float around. We have been film friends for nine years now. We are very good friends. We have known each other for years but I admit sometimes when such stories start doing the rounds, then I too start wondering if there is, indeed, something between us. We know that we are not romantically involved. By the way, this is nothing new -- when an actress works with an actor in more than one film, then people tend to make them a pair,” said Prabhas to the daily.
Prabhas’ next is Saaho, in which is paired with Shraddha Kapoor. Directed by Sujeeth Reddy, the film is said to an action thriller with never-seen-before sequences. The film also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff and Chunky Pandey.
