At a time when rumours ran wild about the ‘Baahubali‘ star being ‘annoyed’ with his leading lady over her ‘unprofessional behaviour’, the makers of the upcoming multi-lingual have issued a statement.
“These reports are completely baseless. Prabhas and Pooja Hedge have great respect and admiration for each other. In fact, they share a great camaraderie off-screen and that has translated into some magical onscreen chemistry,” read the official statement from UV Creations.
Rubbishing claims of the actress’ tendency to arrive late on the sets, the statement read, “Pooja has always been very punctual for her shoots.”
The team also slammed reports alleging the actress’ bad behaviour on the sets. “She is very easy to work with. These rumours are merely a figment of someone’s imagination. All is well between the leading pair and the entire team is very excited to bring audiences a theatrical experience they won’t forget,” the statement concluded.
Directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, the multi-lingual love story is set in Europe in the 1970s and it will see Prabhas and Pooja in never-seen-before avatars.
The multi-lingual film is all set to release in theatres nationwide on Makar Sankranti, January 14, 2022.
