It has now come to light that Prabhas, who has been shooting extensively in Mumbai, has a secret crush on a popular ’90s Bollywood actor. And the lady in question is Raveena Tandon.
“I am a big a fan of Raveena! Every time I saw the song from Andaz Apna Apna – Elo ji sanam, I was like wow!” The IB Times quoted him as saying.
Incidentally, Raveena’s husband Anil Thadani had distributed Baahubali series. A source told IB Times, “In fact, the actors and makers of Bahubali are close friends and part of a group in Hyderabad and whenever they are in Mumbai they visit Anil and Raveena.”
