Revealed: Prabhas' Plans For New Year's Eve 2018

Prabhas Will Not Be Partying On New Year’s Eve 2018! Exclusive Details

It finally here! New Year Eve is upon us and most of us have plans set to welcome New Year 2018 with a bang! By doing things we love to do, letting go of all inhibitions or diet plans. Basically, we all will be indulging tonight as we ring in the brand new year coming our way. Bollywood celebrities have already kickstarted their vacations in various parts of the world and they have been posting updates on social media to let us in on their whereabouts and what they are upto. 

However, the scene is not the same with Baahubali superstar Prabhas. The actor has been in Los Angeles, one of the most happening places in the world, the past few weeks. However, its for prepping for his action thriller Saaho. The actor has been training there under some popular stunt and fitness experts who have worked on some major Hollywood films. So even while he takes a break today to welcome New Year 2018, he will not be partying or indulging in his favourite food.  
A source close to the actor tells us, “Prabhas has been training hard for his role in Saaho. He had bulked up for Baahubali but for this film he is supposed to maintain a certain body type. Since he starts shooting his bit of action sequences from as soon as Januaury 5, 2018, he is not taking chances and has decided to not let go of his fitness and diet regime for even a day. Even if it is New Year eve.” The source also told us that the next Saaho schedule will be around 30-40 days long and Prabhas will continuously train during this as well to maintain the consistency in his look. 

A recent report had stated that Prabhas had been training for around seven hours a day. When we asked our source further, he said, “And physical training is just a part of his preparation. He is on a strict diet where he can have certain meals only at particular time of the day. Not following it religiously will not give him the desired result and that’s the last thing that Prabhas wants to do. He is very dedicated and particular when it comes to getting the look right.” And haven’t we seen that in Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion.

I know no other actor as intelligent as Prabhas: Rajamouli

Rajamouli and Prabhas devoted 5 years of their lives to the blockbuster Baahubali franchise. While Prabhas is currently busy with Saaho, Rajamouli is working on the script for his multi-starrer featuring NTR and Ram Charan. 

In his latest interview with a leading English news portal, Rajamouli was asked if Prabhas is doing the right thing by acting in a film like Saaho after Baahubali. In his response, Rajamouli was all praise for the Young Rebel Star. 

Rajamouli said that he knows no other actor as intelligent as Prabhas. “What I really like about Prabhas is his mature and sensible self-assessment. He knows exactly what he is worth, no more no less. He neither overestimates nor underestimates himself,” Rajamouli said. 

The maverick director continued to explain Prabhas’ understanding of his movies, saying, “when he got into Baahubali, he knew exactly what he was doing. He knows the impact the film will have and the influence his character and performance would exercise. He surrendered himself completely to Baahubali, as he has surrendered himself to Saaho now.”

Baahubali 2 Tops Bollywood Box Office

2017 has been a mixed bag for Bollywood. While big releases like Shah Rukh Khan‘s Jab Harry Met Sejal and Salman Khan‘s Tubelight failed to set the box office on fire, small films like Irrfan Khan’s Hindi Medium and Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Saavdhan performed much better than expected. Ajay Devgn’s Golmaal Again, Varun Dhawan’s Judwaa 2 and Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 also proved once again that franchise films will always perform well at the box office. But which film has emerged as the biggest box office hit and the highest grosser of 2017 till now? Well we took a look at the box office collections of each release this year and here is our list of top 5 highest box office grossers of 2017 till date. 

#Baahubali 2: The Conclusion 
Box Office Collection – Rs 510.99 crore 

Prabhas and SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus was one of the most anticipated films of the decade. After Baahubali: The Beginning ended on a cliffhanger, everyone wanted to know why Katappa killed Baahubali. The intrigue factor paired with fantastic content and stunning visuals invited the audience to watch this film again and again. The Telugu movie broke several records across the world but it’s the Hindi dubbed version that created surprising records. It is the highest grossing Hindi film with a lifetime collection of Rs 510.99 crore. 

#Golmaal Again 
Box Office Collection – Rs 205.05 crore 

The fourth film of the Golmaal franchise, starring Ajay Devgn, Parineeti Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Tabu and several others, ventured into the horror comedy zone and made a killing! Not only was there huge buzz surrounding the film, but also good content paired with excellent performances made this movie a treat for the audience this Diwali. Largely benefiting from the festive period and fantastic word of mouth publicity, Golmaal Again was the first Bollywood release to cross the coveted Rs 200 crore mark this year. 

#Judwaa 2 
Box Office Collection – Rs 138.61 crore 

Being a remake of Salman Khan’s Judwaa, a lot was expected from this Varun Dhawan starrer. And it did not disappoint the audience! The entertaining plot paired with some hilarious jokes and fun moments, made this crowd’s favourite. People went to watch this with their families again and again, enabling it to become the second highest grosser of 2017 till date with a box office collection of Rs 138.61 crore. 

Box Office Collection – Rs 137.51 crore 

Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees was one of the most anticipated films of the year. And though the film had an interesting story, the high expectations and the sub par execution limited its run at the box office. In fact, its clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil also hampered its chance of earning a larger box office collection. But even after all this, Raees has managed to grab the third spot in our list of top box office grossers of 2017. 

#Toilet: Ek Prem Katha 
Box Office Collection – Rs 134.22 crore 

Akshay Kumar’s satirical comedy, which highlighted the issues of sanitation, hygiene and lack of proper toilets in India, was one of the strongest content driven films of the year. Not only did the interesting yet comic story line keep the audience engaged, but it also gave out a brilliant message. With a fantastic run at the box office, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha grabs the fourth spot on our list with a lifetime collection of Rs 134.22 crore.

No Bollywood Star Can Match Prabhas : Mandira Bedi

Some people wonder who could have suited to play the character of Baahubali if Prabhas didn't agree to do the film. While everyone knows that there are not many actors in India who have the stardom, dedication, masculinity, and screen presence to essay a larger than life character like Baahubali, 'Saaho' actress Mandira Bedi feels that no actor in Bollywood has Prabhas' caliber to immortalize Baahubali role the way the he did. 

Mandira, who has spent good number of days with Prabhas on the sets of 'Saaho', is completely bowled over by his humility and commitment. She said that she had become a fan of Prabhas after watching Baahubali and that her adulation for the Tollywood star hero grew further after personally interacting with him on Saaho sets. She made a statement that no Bollywood star could have played Baahubali role as majestic as Prabhas. 

Mandira is essaying a grey character in Saaho.

Nation Roars as Prabhas Wins no Award for Baahubali

Article Credits :

The significance of awards is to bestow upon the deserving; however, things were different this time with the prestigious Nandi Awards of the south. 

The film Baahubali scooped in 14 awards in different categories like the Best film, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress, Best Villain, Best Cinematographer, Best Playback Singer (male), Best Music, Best Choreographer, Best Fight Master, Best Dubbing, and Best Special Effects Awards. 

However, Prabhas has not won any awards for his high octane performance in Baahubali. The actor’s performance has also not been acknowledged in IFFA and SIIMA either. 

However, Prabhas not winning awards has not gone well with his admirers. The nation expressed its anger towards the injustice meted against the actor.

Well, with such fans love, it is clear that Prabhas is beyond all the awards and that the fans love for him is in itself greater than any prestigious awards put together.

Bollywood Media Slams Nandi Awards & Other Awards

Not fair! 14 Nandi Awards for Bahubali: The Beginning, none for Prabhas – WHY??

Last evening, the prestigious Nandi Awards for three consecutive years – 2014, 2015 and 2016 were announced. Rajinikanth, Mahesh Babu, Kamal Haasan, Anushka Shetty, Jr NTR, Ritu Varma were among the many that bagged honours for their performances. Unsurprisingly, Baahubali: The Beginning that released in 2015 bagged 14 awards across different categories. 

SS Rajamouli was honored with the best Director Award, Sivagami was felicitated too in the best Supporting Actress category, Rana Daggubati bagged the award for the Best Villain. Keeravani, the music composer and KK Senthil Kumar also were part of the long winner’s list. Needless to say, Baahubali also won in the Best Film category. To add to it, the film won awards for special effects and dubbing as well. Anushka Shetty might have not a won award for Baahubali but she did bag one for her role in Rudramadevi. To be fair, her role in Part 1 was brief that didn’t call for an award. 

While the film winning a whopping 13 awards is not the least bit surprising, what is in fact surprising, rather shocking is – Prabhas NOT being honoured for Baahubali in a single category! Wait, what?! The Telugu actor who transformed himself drastically for his role in the magnum opus hasn’t been acknowledged yet again. 

Interestingly, the actor never won a SIIMA nor an IIFA for his performance. What’s even weirder – Nandi Awards 2015 and SIIMA 2016 have both gone to Mahesh Babu for Srimanthudu! While Mahesh Babu may have delivered a crackling performance in the Koratala Siva actioner, it was Prabhas who sprung a surprise on fans,critics by revealing a completely new avatar. 

With Baahubali, the already popular Telugu actor pushed the envelope and how! Did you know, the actor weighed around 100kg as Amarendra Baahubali while as Shivudu he weighed 85 kg. His workouts varied with respect to the character he played, so did his diet. While his diet for Shivudu’s role was high in protein, his role as Amrendra was high in carbs. The actor actually bought gym equipment worth a crore for his workout. Mr World Lakshman Reddy was the one who trained him. The actor made sure he never missed a workout even if it meant working out at night! Apart from working on his physique, Prabhas also grew his hair and he maintained it for five years. The results were for us to see of course! 

Apart from his drastic physical transformation,his performance was applause worthy as well. The fictitious characters – Shivudu and Baahubali came to life, courtesy Prabhas! If one found Shivudu’s mischievous ways adorable, one was floored by Amarendra’s humility. It came to a point, one couldn’t distinguish between Prabhas and the characters he played. The actor became a global star after the movie’s release. He became a known face across industries. 

To top it all, he never signed on any other film from start to end! Which Telugu star can boast of any of the above? He has been lauded for his act time and again, but hasn’t won a single award. Why??
