Prabhas Meets Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Urges Him to Watch Baahubali
Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan may be creating box office history with each passing day but it’s the most expensive film ever made in India, SS Rajamouli-directed Baahubali, that may have found a special place in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s wish list, of movies to watch.
The films leading man Prabhas met up with the PM at his office in New Delhi on July 26 and urged him to watch the film that has now made close to Rs 400 crores at the ticket window both in India and abroad.
In an interview to ANI Prabhas said, “Today is the best day of my life. I am a big fan (of Narendra Modi) and I can never forget this day. I spoke about Baahubali, I asked him to watch (the film) if he has the time. He said that he’s a little busy but if he can, he surely will.”
The PM even tweeted:
Met ‘Baahubali’ Prabhas today. pic.twitter.com/Qs44yENsOL,
The Indian PM however wasn’t the only political bigwig to be impressed by Baahubali and its achievements. Home Minister Rajnath Singh also took to Twitter on July 24, to praise both Prabhas and Baahubali:
It’s hardly surprising that both the PM and the Home Minister had tall words for Baahubali even when Salman Khans Bajrangi Bhaijaan is doing so well at the box office. Not so long ago Salman had urged PM Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif to watch the film,
The latest development however points at the opposite direction. PM Modi has clearly chosen to put his might behind Baahubali.
Salman’s latest tweets supporting Yakub Memon in the 1993 Mumbai serial blast case has perhaps not gone down too well with the Indian PM. While Salman may have retracted his comments, but it looks like there is at least one person who will not be watchingBajrangi Bhaijaan anytime soon. PM Modi himself.
