A Twitter user requested the director of Mission Impossible 7, Christopher McQuarrie to clarify on Twitter if Prabhas was a part of the Tom Cruise actioner as many Indian news channels were claiming. The director politely dismissed the news as rumours.

So we thought we will tell you about all such rumours of big actors getting cast in Hollywood movies but eventually, nothing happened.
