Lights, Action, Prabhas!

Prabhas is back in action with ‘Bujjigadu’



Not in a hurry With Trisha in ’Bujjigaadu..made in Chennai’

He may stand tall at six feet and two inches, but there is no degree of high visibility on the social circuit or in the media. Prabhas had always been this way, not very outgoing but happy at home with family and friends. On the eve of his forthcoming release Bujjigaadu..made in Chennai, the soft spoken actor talks about his role, Puri Jagannath and matters of his heart.

Bujjigadu like Chatrapa ti is important for him because this will be another resurrection of an action hero who got lost in weepy melodramas like Chakram, Yogi and Pournami. He says, “My family too felt that I was doing too much of melodrama, so I got back to action this time. Surprisingly after Varsham, I had women folk telling me they love me in action films.”

The actor irrefutably adds that he tried a different look this time and the audience will be entertained right from the first scene to the last shot. The tagline ‘Made in Chennai’ suggests that character Bujjigadu had spent most of his prime time in Chennai speaking Tamil. Puri Jagan a specialist in dialogue-writing has given him the best of one liners and inspired him to give out his best. He quips, “sometimes you wouldn’t know the fate of the film till its release but there are films like this which makes your adrenalin rush from the beginning to the end.” Trisha is working with him for the third time and needless to say both of them share a wonderful rapport.

Ask Prabhas about his dancing skills he laughs and admits getting the chill down his spine. He adds, “I do not have two left feet but I was worried till the last two films. I guess I’m okay now. I love working in action films because there is no such tension.” The industry is rife with rumours about his romantic liaison with one of his co-stars.

But the actor emphatically denies having a relationship. “I’m not averse to falling in love, but it never happened, also I take all these rumours with a pinch of salt. It comes with the package but who wouldn’t love not to have complications in life?”

This young man might not have worked in more than a dozen films, but he had already connected himself with the mass market with his debut film Eswar. When mediocrity is the order of the day and competition is stiff in the Telugu film industry, Prabhas is not a man in a hurry. He feels there is enough place and talent here and if one’s commitment is strong, you can earn your space. As a parting shot he says, “I am enjoying what I’m doing. Everything else is irrelevant after the bliss of giving a perfect shot.
