In the world of social media where praise and criticism are flying all over, some of the reclusive celebrities often get lost. One such star is ‘Baahubali’ Prabhas, who rarely makes an appearance on the Internet. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t praise someone if impressed. The Telugu star recently liked Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Kabir Singh’ teaser, and his comments about it had gone viral earlier. The Bollywood star has now stated that he is ‘overwhelmed’ with the praise from the South superstar and called it ‘encouraging’.
In a recent interview, Shahid revealed that the two share a common hairstylist Aalim Hakim, who was with the 'Saaho' star in Hyderabad when the ‘Kabir Singh’ teaser was unveiled. The ‘Vivah’ star then shared that Prabhas instantly called him to congratulate. The 38-year-old actor stated that the 10-minute call left him ‘overwhelmed.'
Shahid also spoke about the conversation at another event, where he was quoted as saying, "I spoke to Prabhas and he was very kind. He is Mahendra Baahubali for us so, it was really cool and encouraging to get such kind words from him because the Hindi audience might not know that Arjun Reddy is an iconic Telugu film and it received a lot of love from the audience.”
Earlier, Hakim had revealed that Prabhas loved the teaser very much and felt, by the initial glimpses, that the movie was even better than the original.
The teaser on its release had gone instantly viral for Shahid’s self-intoxicating angry young medical student and lover avatar.
‘Kabir Singh’, helmed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy, the director of the original featuring Vijay Deverakonda, and also starring Kiara Advani, is hitting the screens on June 21.
