Prabhas had been going through a lean phase. None of his films had been doing wonders at the box office in spite of the association of top directors. He is at the moment acting in Billa, a Tamil Remake, being directed by Meher Ramesh.
The last big hit of Prabhas was Chatrapathi produced by Prasad and directed by SS Rajamouli.
According to Film Nagar sources, the producer of Chatrapathi, B V S N Prasad has come forward to make a film with Prabhas in the lead under his banner Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra. This film will be directed by Karunakaran of Ullasanga…Uthsanga and Toliprema fame.
This film, titled Darling, is likely to go to floors in the month of April.
