    After the humongous success of Baahubali 2, Prabhas became a heart-throb of the entire nation! The movie not only broke many records of Indian cinemas at the box office but also made Prabhas, an overnight Superstar! Post the release of Baahubali 2, Prabhas came on board for Saaho and roped in Shraddha Kapoor for the same. But did you know that Prabhas was offered a film opposite Deepika Padukone but the actor ended up rejecting it? Read on to find out!

    The Film Was Padmaavat!

    The Quint quoted a source close to the project as saying, "Once Prabhas heard the narration and the scope of his role, he reportedly did not want to sign the Bhansali dream project."

    Prabhas Wanted A Meaty Role

    "Prabhas' reasoning could have been that since Raja Ratan Singh didn't have a meaty role in Padmaavat, all the hard work and image that he had worked for having invested 5 years in the Baahubali films would have lost its impact. He was looking for nothing less than a central role at par with that of Deepika Padukone."

    Shahid Replaced Prabhas

    Going by this surprising revelation, one can assume that Shahid wasn't the first choice of Sanjay Leela Bhansali to portray the role of 'Raja Rawal Ratan Singh' in Padmaavat.

    Coming Back To Prabhas..

    The star is busy with the shooting of his much ambitious project, Saaho. The film will be released in Telugu & Hindi and it also casts Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Jackie Shroff.
