Actor Prabhas, known for the film Baahubali: The Beginning (2015), was offered Rs 5.5 crore to endorse a fitness brand, but he turned it down.

Why? “To concentrate on his next film,” says the actor’s spokesperson, adding: “Prabhas was offered the amount as the brand felt he fit its image due to his popularity and pan India appeal. His character in Bahubali was also known for his fitness.”

The actor has also been working on himself to beef up for his next project. A fitness freak, he engages in various physical activities to stay in shape. “Prabhas has kept himself fit through rock climbing, outdoor workouts and running. This caught the eye of the ad makers,” says a source close to the actor.

Meanwhile, Prabhas is shooting for the sequel to Baahubali that will release next year. According to reports, the actor’s look in the film will be released in October.
