Sathyaraj reasoned that Prabhas used to do rom coms before but after the release of Baahubali, he is "restricted" to taking on larger-than-life roles. He put Thalapathy Vijay too in the leagues of the Salaar star when it comes to picking movies.

"Due to their stardom, Prabhas and Vijay are now limited to taking on only big films. Before Baahubali, Prabhas acted in romantic films, but now he is restricted to larger-than-life roles," Sathyaraj said.
