Chennai, Feb 19: The success of Telugu action-drama “Mirchi”, which has reaped gold at the box-office, is a team effort and no single person from the unit can claim the success, says actor Prabhas Raju.
“I’m extremely happy with the success of the movie. All of us worked together for one common goal and we have finally achieved it. No single person from the team can claim the success of the film. It was a team effort,” Prabhas told IANS.
“I was confident that the movie will do well right from the beginning because I saw the confidence in my director. The passion with which he brought this story, floored me, and I couldn’t decline the offer,” he added.
“Mirchi”, directed by debutant Koratala Siva, collected approximately Rs.24 crore in two weeks worldwide. It released all over Feb 8.
Prabhas is paired opposite Anushka Shetty and Richa Gangopadhyay in the film. The movie narrates how the protagonist wins people’s hearts with love and helps in reuniting two rival families.
He says it may have been a commercial film, yet it managed to touch hearts with a message.
“Films nowadays are bound to have commercial elements to draw the attention of masses. ‘Mirchi’ too has high commercial values, but at the same time weaves a good message, which was unanimously accepted by the audience,” he said.
Meanwhile, Prabhas is currently busy filming for Telugu period-drama “Baahubali”.
“After ‘Chatrapathi’, I wanted to work with Rajamouli again but somehow it didn’t happen until now. This is an exciting project where I get to ride horses and wield swords. I can’t wait for it to come out,” said Prabhas.
