Actor Prabhas become the hero of masses after donning the role of Amrendra Baahubali in SS Rajamouli’s epic tale Baahubali. The 27-year-old’s chemistry with co-star Anushka Shetty was loved by all. Prabhas and Anushka essayed the roles of the Royal King and Queen in both Baahubali 1 (The Beginning) and Baahubali 2 (The Conclusion). The two became so popular with their portrayals that their fans started speculating about their real-life link-up. The couple is seen as both reel and real life hit amongst the fans. Their craze is such that fans want them to marry each other.

However, Prabhas has denied all the allegations from time to time and has maintained that he shares a close bond with Anushka and they are also very good family friends. In an interaction with a leading daily, Prabhas once again refuted the affair rumours with Anushka and said they are only good friends and are not dating each other. Putting all marriage rumours to rest Prabhas said, “I and Anushka had decided that we won’t let any link-up rumours burst up when we started shooting for Baahubali, we have been close family friends for almost 9 years now.”

“There is nothing brewing between us; all the reports in media sometimes make me think, is there really something between us? (laughs) but no there isn’t. Well, that’s not a new thing; whenever two actors work opposite each other in more than 2 films, their names are automatically linked.”

Prabhas has garnered a lot of female fans across the country with his dynamic performance in the Baahubali series and is now touted amongst the most eligible bachelors in the film industry. When asked about his dream girl, Prabhas says, “I have never thought of it, before but I know when I will meet the girl, I would know, she is the one.”

Revealing about his first ever crush, Prabhas remembers his school teacher who made him forget his studies.

Amrendra Baahubali’s role was perfectly essayed by Prabhas and the actor mentions that there are a few qualities from the role which he would like to inhibit in his real life. “I want to be strong and honest as Amrendra Baahubali and turn the fortunes of people in need,” says Prabhas.

Currently, Prabhas is working on his new project Saahoo with Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor.
