Reports were doing the rounds that Prabhas and Anushka Shetty were likely to get engaged by the year-end.
After the massive success of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, rumour mills were rife that Prabhas and Anushka Shetty were dating for a long time. While reports about their relationship created quite a buzz in the industry, both Prabhas and Anushka have denied it. Earlier today, it was reported that Prabhas and Anushka Shetty are all set to make their relationship official and that the couple is likely to get engaged in December.
While fans started to celebrate the news on social media, the report, however, turns out to be a rumour. In an interview to Navbharat Times, Prabhas has opened up about his rumoured relationship with Anushka Shetty.
He was quoted as saying, “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. 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 teaming up with Sujeeth Reddy for an action adventure film titled Saaho. In fact, Anushka Shetty was supposed to be playing the leading lady. However, she was dropped from the film and was later replaced with Shraddha Kapoor.
