Though there was mixed talk prior to the release of Baahubali, the film became a stupendous hit even beyond the expectations of the film-makers. And the success has worked in favour of its lead star Prabhas.
Already, Prabhas became the highest paid Tollywood actor as he got a huge pay check for Baahubali. Of course, during that time, he did not work on other films and dedicated himself to Baahubali.
The film raked in Rs 560 crores and rewrote many records in Indian cinema. Since the first part collected such huge amounts, the makers are confident that it will rake in huge amount of money once again. Naturally, Prabhas will be getting a much bigger pay package this time around.
As for director Rajamouli, he has already decided to increase the profit percentage to Prabhas for the second part.
Formal shooting of the second part will commence in October and all the questions left unanswered in the first part will be answered in this part. Also, Anushka of course gets to play a lengthier role in the sequel.
Already Prabhas has become a household name in all the languages that Baahubali released in. So, Prabhas surely has become the highest paid actor in Tollywood apart from getting all India recognition.
