What may come as heartbreaking news for thousands of young girls, their favourite heartthrob Prabhas of Baahubali fame, is all set to tie the knot this year-end. Addressing the media ahead of his birthday on Tuesday, Prabhas’ paternal uncle Krishnam Raju, a veteran Telugu star, has confirmed that his nephew will get married soon and the search for his bride is already underway.

This Sankranti festival, Prabhas made a promise. He assured me that he will get married as soon as he completes shooting for Baahubali 2. By the end of 2016, his fans can expect some good news from his family.

Prabhas has been linked to several leading heroines over the years; however his uncle has clarified that he won’t get married to anyone from the industry. The septuagenarian star, who has starred in over 100 films, further added that he plans to produce a film with Prabhas later this year. “We are planning to do a romantic subject. Everything is in place except for a director, who will be finalized very soon. Though Prabhas and I were supposed to work together earlier, things are only falling in place now and before it’s too late, we’d like to get started.”

Prabhas, meanwhile, is burning the midnight oil for Baahubali 2. He has apparently beefed up for the second part in the franchise, which will soon be filmed in Kerala, where some key portions will be shot. The film is expected to hit the screens towards the end of this year or early 2017.
