Tollywood actors Prabhas and Anushka Shetty have ashared screen space for many times in the past. And, in the south film industry, it has been speculated that the duo is romantically involved. But, Prabhas has finaaly cleared the air about his alleged relationship.
Ever Since the release of the of SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster film ‘Baahubali 2’, rumours have been making rounds that there is a romantic relationship between the two stars and they are secretly dating each other.
However, both Prabhas and Anushka have repeatedly denied any romantic connection between them.
Moreover, Prabhas had admitted that Anushka was a family friend and there is nothing more to their relationship. He even claimed that they have known each other for nine years now and are good friends.
In an interview with Navbharat Times, Prabhas said, “When we first worked together we had decided that at no cost we would allow rumours of our linkup float around. We have been film friends for nine years now. We are very good friends. We have known each other for years but I admit sometimes when such stories start doing the rounds, then I too start wondering if there is, indeed, something between us. We know that we are not romantically involved’’.
He further added, ‘’By the way, this is nothing new -- when an actress works with an actor in more than one film, then people tend to make them a pair’’.
On the work front, Prabhas is currently busy shooting for upcoming action thriller film ‘Saaho’. Directed by Sujeeth, the movie also features Shraddha Kapoor, Arun Vijay and Neil Nitin Mukesh in key roles.
‘Saaho’ is slated to release in 2018.
