Hyderabad: 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. Mirchi, directed by debutant Koratala Siva, has collected approximately Rs 24 crores nett in two weeks worldwide. It released all over Feb 8.
In a candid chat with IANS, Prabhas expressed his excitement over the Mirchi success. The actor said, "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 Raju credits the success of the movie Mirchi mainly to director Koratala Siva. He added, "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."
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. Prabhas said, "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."
