Now, KJo who has slammed several celebrities in the past, took to his Twitter handle and said, “Dear Ambition..if you have to achieve your full potential stay away from your arch nemesis…Comparison!”.
“Prabhas had devoted five years of his life to the two Baahubali films and it was only fair that he would want to cash in on his new success. Prabhas has clearly out-priced himself from Bollywood.

But on seeing the price he was asking, Karan has decided to abandon the idea of launching him”, a source was quoted as saying to DNA.
