Rebel Star Krishnam Raju has many plans to make movies with 'Young Rebel Star' Prabhas. He earlier planned a movie called “Vishala Netralu” with Prabhas but it didn't happen.
A few months later an announcement came that he would produce a big-budgeted movie with Prabhas once he completes “Baahubali 2”. But Prabhas had already given a nod to director Sujith for his next movie. Still, Krishnam Raju is not losing hope to make a grand movie with Prabhas and revive their production house Gopi Krishna Movies.
The latest reports suggest that he is planning to remake the classic movie “Bhakta Kannappa” with Prabhas on a big scale. Krishnam Raju himself starred in that movie which was produced by Prabhas's father in 1976.
Two years ago, Tanikella Bharani began working on the remake of “Bhakta Kannappa” with Sunil as hero but it was stalled due to lack of funds. Then Manchu Vishnu came forward to act in the film as hero. But no progress was seen on that front. Hence Krishnam Raju is now seriously thinking to make it with Prabhas.
On the other hand, Prabhas has other plans he doesn't want to do such lavish historical or devotional movies for another two or three years. After the release of “Baahubali 2”, he wants to do couple of romantic or action movies just to lessen the burden of the image he acquired with the “Baahubali”.
