Over the past few years, Deepika Padukone has improved her ranking as a star considerably. Two things have happened simultaneously, which helped her in the process. They are the success of the films and the controversial publicity associated with each one of them.
Who can forget Padmavat? It was the most controversial release of our times. Deepika Padukone almost flirted with a similar type of aggression with her latest outing (Chhappak) as well when she expressed solidarity on one side in JNU student’s issue. It was done in haste with knowing the facts.
It brings us to Prabhas. The Rebel Star of Telugu cinema is hardly a social animal. Like most (but, not all) of Telugu stars, he mostly keeps to himself and is a reluctant mover. Even in his best-publicised movies, Baahubali 1 and 2, Prabhas took a backseat. It is only off-late that Prabhas (like others) is giving a thought to social media and hence some updates in that domain. In this space (social media), Deepika Padukone is miles ahead.
On the day of announcement itself, Deepika Padukone has given a glimpse of how it will be with her on board. There were three immediate instances – calling out on ‘Prabhas21’, #DeepikaPrabhas and finally mentioning Prabhas21 as a Hindi, Tamil and Telugu project in that order. These minor things, in the beginning, would gradually snowball into something more substantial, if Deepika goes about her usual ways.
One way or the other, Deepika Padukone’s presence will ensure Prabhas21 is in the news. It will be right for the project, but will it come at the cost of downplaying, and dominating Prabhas? It is what needs to be seen.Don't MissGetting Kapu Community's Support Can Be So Easy?Bharatiya Janatha Party seems to be very serious about Andhra Pradesh for the coming elections....Don't MissAmaravati Issue Nothing to Lose and Something to Gain for BJP?Union Government has filed an Affidavit in Andhra Pradesh High Court regarding the Capital issue...Don't MissNandamuri Mokshagna Was Never ReadyThis is one of the unseen pics of Balakrishna with his wife Vasundhara Devi and...Don't MissAmid Jai Sriram Chants, Ram Lalla Returns to His KingdomThe Long-Cherished Dream of Crores of Hindus is finally happening.
