Atlee’s next after the blockbuster Mersal most likely to be with Prabhas!
With three back to back hits, Atlee is now one of the most wanted filmmakers in Tamil cinema. His last movie Mersal with Thalapathy was a massive blockbuster, said to be the highest grossing movie in Kollywood. Ever since the release of Mersal, there have been a lot of speculations about the director’s next. Though Atlee had confirmed that he will be teaming up with Vijay once again, but that will not be his immediate project.
For the last few months, talks have been going around about Atlee planning a movie with ‘Baahubali’ star Prabhas. In a recent interaction with a bunch of college students, Atlee even hinted the same, but without revealing the name. He is quoted saying, “My next will be a big Telugu film, with a leading star. I request everyone to wait for a few more days, as the discussions are still going on.”
Even though Atlee stopped from revealing the Telugu star’s name, reports strongly suggest Prabhas to be the top contender. Prabhas meanwhile is shooting for Saaho directed by Sujeeth. It is an ambitious film with a plethora of actors from industries across the country. Bollywood diva Shraddha Kapoor is playing the female lead. Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Tamil actor Arun Vijay and Lal are playing prominent roles in the movie.
If reports are to be believed, Prabhas is also in talks for a romantic film with director Radha Krishna Kumar. Pooja Hedge is said to be playing the female lead. An official announcement has not yet been made.
