Ravi Teja’s Tiger Nageswara Rao will now be released on September 29.
Prabhas’ previous film Adipurush was a big-time flop because of the poor visual effects and slow narration. The film was made on a huge budget but it didn’t live up to people’s expectations. Apart from Salaar, Prabhas will be next working on Kalki 2898 AD, Spirit, and Raja Deluxe. Touted to be one of the most successful and highest-paid actors in Indian cinema, Prabhas has a fanbase all over India.
Prabhas is the first South Indian actor to have a wax sculpture at Madame Tussaud’s wax museum. He is known widely for supporting various social causes. He is referred to as Darling Star and one of the most humble and down-to-earth Indian actors. The Baahubali film series i.e. Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion are the two movies that made Prabhas get such a huge pan-India appeal. He has received an important fanbase in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi languages.
