7 Interesting facts about ‘Baahubali’ star Prabhas

Prabhas may be a very popular actor in Tollywood and now India thanks to ‘Baahubali,’ but he has always had a loyal fan base, who call him ‘Darling Prabhas,’ Prabhas has completed 14 years in the Telugu film industry. It was in November,2002, 14 years ago when Prabhas’ first movie, ‘Eeshwar’ came out. He has definitely come a long way since then and to honour him on achieving this milestone, here are a few interesting facts about the actor that will delight you…

Spent three years for Baahubali:

Before ‘Baahubali,’ the last film that the Tollywood hunk worked on was ‘Mirchi,’ way back in 2013! Since then, the actor has dedicated all his time and energy to SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus. Considering the physical training, combat training, and stunt coordination and shooting for both the parts, it took around three years for Prabhas to finish his commitment to the franchise. Till then, he did not sign a single film and focused singularly on this project.

Trained by Mr World for Baahubali:

For ‘Baahubali’ Prabhas had to bulk up seriously. He underwent a massive transformation as he went from 82 kilos to a whopping 102 kilos in a matter of few months. To achieve this, he was trained by none other than Mr World 2010, Laxman Reddy. Not just that, the makers of the film gave him gym equipment worth Rs 1.5 crores, which he installed in his house and trained there itself.

Didn’t attain success till his third film:

There have been many one-hit wonders in Tollywood but stars often struggle initially till they achieve success at some point. Same has been the case with Prabhas. He began his career with ‘Eeshwar’ which didn’t do as well as he would have wanted it to. Neither did his next one ‘Raghavendra.’ It was ‘Varsham,’ that released in 2004, that actually made Prabhas a popular actor and a rising star. Although, after he achieved stardom, his fans also started relishing his older work.

Bollywood debut before ‘Baahubali:

Everyone in the country knows Prabhas from ‘Baahubali: The Beginning.’ However, they forget his Bollywood debut, which happened in 2014 itself. He actually had a guest appearance in Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha-starrer, ‘Action Jackson.’ Prabhas appeared briefly in the song, ‘Punjabi Mast’ as he shook a leg with Sonakshi. So technically, this makes ‘Baahubali’ his second Bollywood movie.

Big fan of Rajkumar Hirani and Robert De Niro:

Prabhas is a self-confessed fan of director Rajkumar Hirani and revealed that he has watched ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ and ‘3 Idiots’ almost twenty times! When it comes to Hollywood, the ‘Baahubali’ hunk is a big fan of Robert De Niro and when it comes to Telugu cinema, his favourite movie is ‘Bhakta Kannappa’ starring his uncle, Krishnam Raju. It looks like he has got his inspiration right.

Well educated:

Coming from a family with a cinema background, Prabhas could have easily just jumped into the spotlight. But he decided to focus on his education first. All engineers around the country will now be proud to know that Prabhas is also a B.E. degree holder and an engineer just like them. He did his engineering from Sri Chaitanya College in Hyderabad. So this handsome actor is not all looks but is also pretty intelligent.

Devoted to family:

Even after being such a star, Prabhas is very grounded. In fact, he is very close to his family and especially to his mother. Not a day goes by without him spending some quality time with her. It is truly incredible to see someone do that in a day and age when the concept of family is fast becoming obsolete.
