Prabhas’ Salaar co-star Prithviraj Sukumaran says the former isn’t aware of his stardom

Talking to Gallata Plus, Sukumaran shared, “He is one of those huge stars who are delightfully unaware of his own stardom. He will be on set, and will be the last person to sit down. If another actor doesn’t have a chair, he will keep standing till they don’t get one. He is a gentleman. Never once did I feel that I am in another industry, so I am not the lead star on a set.”

He added, “That thought didn’t even cross my mind. Prabhas is a big star but comfortable and secure enough to have another actor play such a big role, have screen time and so much importance throughout the film. When I talk to him about the films that he wants to do, he keeps telling me, ‘Sir, it’s kind of a trap after Baahubali. I keep getting pushed to these big ticket, Rs 400-500 cr films but as an actor I also want to try different thing, I want to do a love story, a comedy.’”


Made on a budget of Rs 400 crores, the movie is bankrolled by Homable Films.
