After the mega success of the Baahubali franchise, Prabhas next worked on the high budget action flick Saaho. Though this movie had a good run in Hindi, it did not do as well as expected in Telugu and Tamil. Prabhas has moved on and was working on his next project – Radhe Shyam before all shooting was suspended because of the COVID-19 Corona Virus Pandemic. The unit of Radhe Shyam, which was filming in Georgia, went into self-quarantine, on their return from Georgia and were indoors during the lockdown period and now that things are getting better, they will be hopeful in resuming shoot very soon. Just like most top film stars even Prabhas had a made hefty contribution for the needy during this pandemic, he had donated Rs. 4 Crores towards the relief efforts, of which Rs. 3 Crores was for the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund and Rs. 50 lakhs each towards the Chief Minister's funds of Telangana & Andhra Pradesh. 
Radhe Shyam is being directed by Radha Krishna Kumar and has Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo star Pooja Hegde as the lady lead. Prabhas would next be joining hands with Mahanati director Nag Ashwin, for his #Prabhas21. This project, which was originally scheduled to take off towards the second half of this year, has now been postponed to next year because of the worldwide shutdown due to the COVID-19 Corona Virus Pandemic. It had originally been stated that Prabhas 21, his next movie after Radhe Shyam, would be directed by Nag Ashwin of Mahanati fame and that this movie would begin rolling by August of this year. However, with the whole country going into lockdown and the cinema industry going into hibernation, the progress of all the movies has been hit and we now hear that the shoot of Prabhas 21 has also been postponed. Sources in the know state that #Prabhas21 would only begin shoot from early next year – 2021.
