Actor Prabhas, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming 'Saaho', has talked about the possibility of filmmaker SS Rajamouli making a third part in hit franchise 'Baahubali'. He rose to national fame with the blockbuster two-part magnum opus. In a recent interview, Prabhas said, "If SS Rajamouli wants to do part 3 he should get excited. He only gave me 6 scripts, so he would have done some 10-14. We almost finished 60 per cent there. I know he had the script in mind for five years. But I don't know if 'Baahubali 3' will happen or not."

He also talked about the experience of working on 'Baahubali' films, where he worked exclusively on the movie for four years. "I was very comfortable giving 4 years of 'Baahubali'. Toward the end I felt I want to do something else also. Sometimes I forget I was part of the project, it was that surreal." He added, "Amarendra Baahubali and Mahendra Baahubali will never get out of my system."

Talking about preparations for the movie, Prabhas said, "For 'Baahubali', we took to old-school methods, targeting one body part, like chest, arms or legs every day. Weights would be heavy to enable us to create that bulk. There was a point when he was lifting as much as body builders do."

Meanwhile, his upcoming 'Saaho' is slated to hit theatres on August 30. Directed by Sujeeth, the film is multilingual and will release in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. It also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Arun Vijay, Jackie Shroff, and Mandira Bedi in pivotal roles.
