While Prabhas‘ Baahubali: The Conclusion co-star Rana Daggubati agrees with DOP Senthil Kumar, here’s what the hero himself thinks about comparisons with Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. So, Prabhas was in Mumbai doling out interviews ahead of his film’s release. He had Rana for company, while the film’s director SS Rajamouli along with Senthil Kumar and the producer were busy with another event in the maximum city. A megastar in Telugu film industry, Prabhas’ reaction to Senthil Kumar declaring him a bigger superstar than Khans of Bollywood will surprise you.
Senthil Kumar at an event had said, “He (Prabhas) is today, the biggest star of India. He is bigger than any Khan or anyone. His film today will be probably the first film to cross Rs 1000 crore and I am so proud to be associated with him. Such a humble man he is.” (ALSO READ – Prabhas is the biggest star of India, bigger than any ‘KHAN’, says Baahubali DOP K K Senthil Kumar)
Prabhas however strongly disagrees with the Baahubali DOP. When BollywoodLife in an EXCLUSIVE interaction with the actor asked him about this statement, here’s what he said, “He (Senthil Kumar) just got really excited and said all of that.” While his humble smile remains plastered on his face one cannot miss his embarrassment. Co-star Rana however thinks otherwise. Rana commented about Mr Kumar’s statement, he said, “From my perspective he is the biggest action hero we have ever have and he is a huge star.”
Rana further elaborated, “With due respect to everybody, for an actor of his (Prabhas) calibre he is somebody right at the top. He is coming to Baahubali after about two to three really massive blockbusters. He has given about five years of his life to make cinema that big (Baahubali) and it is obviously Rajamouli‘s vision and all of that. He has stood like this pillar of strength for this film and unquestioning many things, believing that you are making the greatest product ever and that is hard to find many actors doing that at their level and that calibre. So yes, to me he is a huge star.”
Even after such a great speech from Rana, Prabhas dismissed such a huge compliment and said, “He (Senthil Kumar) just got over excited after Baahubali was done and just blabbered something, there’s nothing like that.” (ALSO READ – OMG!

While Prabhas doesn’t agree with his DOP, Senthil Kumar just couldn’t stop gushing about Baahubali hero. He had also quipped, “When I met Prabhas I didn’t know there is a star who had so many fans really. We were shooting in Kurnool, there were so many people around 100 times than this (pointing at the audience present at the pre-release event) and we couldn’t shoot and that’s the time I immediately called my wife and told her there is someone else here, because I’ve worked with so many superstars, they don’t have so many fans.” (ALSO READ – Prabhas to have a TRIPLE role in Baahubali 2: The Conclusion?)
