Prabhas and Hrithik Roshan were once compared by director SS Rajamouli, who claimed that the latter was nothing in comparison to his Baahubali star. This occurred at the 2008 premiere of Prabhas’s Billa trailer. After viewing several images from the movie Billa, Rajamouli compared the actors.
Reddit users’ reactions to a resurrected videotape of Rajamouli’s speech have been conflicted.
Rajamouli added in the video, “When Dhoom 2 came out two years ago, I questioned why only Bollywood could produce such high-caliber movies. We have heroes like Hrithik Roshan, don’t we? I’ve just seen Billa’s songs, poster, and trailer, and I only have one thing to say. Prabhas is better than Hrithik Roshan, who is nothing. I want to thank filmmaker Meher Ramesh for raising Telugu cinema to Hollywood standards.

A user’s reaction to an old comment by Rajamouli was conflicted. “I can confirm the translation is tiny bit all over but SSR said it & that’s 15 years ago when nobody used to look at Telugu film and audio launch speeches were a thing here,” one of them remarked in the comment section (to hype the main lead etc). Jakanna occasionally just speaks carelessly. He had a minor conflict with Sri Devi as well and was unable to manage his feelings.
The translation “Hrithik is nothing in front of Prabhas” is incorrect.
People claim that Telugu cinema lacks actors like Hrithik (referring to how handsome he is, apart from acting talent). Then he claims that after viewing the song, posters, and trailer, Hrithik would not be a good fit for this. Another person wrote, “(This is the best translation I can come up with.)” Another person said, “Perhaps it’s just a one-off statement, maybe he’s just pretending to be modest to advertise himself as the common man, or maybe he changed into a more humble gentleman.”
Billa, which Meher Ramesh directed, was a Don remake starring Amitabh Bachchan. It was released in 2009 and stars Prabhas and Anushka Shetty. Even before his critically acclaimed Baahubali film series, it is one of Prabhas’ most well-known Telugu movies.
