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.

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??

Saaho’s Abu Dhabi schedule goes on floor

Saaho team is being extremely careful about their film and actor Prabhas. Since after Baahubali, Saaho is the much anticipated and awaited project starring Prabhas, the team is taking all sort of steps to keep the locations as well as Prabhas look under wraps. In fact, a diktat has been issued  against use of mobile on the sets.

After wrapping up the shoot of Saaho in Hyderabad, Prabhas is heading to Abu Dhabi to shoot for the action sequences. But before the shoot goes on floor, the team is making sure to protect the details of shoot locations and as well as Prabhas’ look. 

So far, the team has been successful to keep Prabhas look under wraps. In fact, the first teaser look the makers released on the rebel star’s birthday did not reveal exactly how the actor would look in the film. 

Sources reveal that to avoid any sort of leak from the sets, a diktat has been issued against the use of camera phones on the shoot location. Sources close to the film said, “Since it is the first outdoor schedule for the film, Saaho makers are being cautious and taking preventive measure against leaks and will beef up the security on sets.” 

“Diktat has been issued against the use of cell phones on sets. We have not yet received specifications of the locations of our Abu Dhabi schedule. Makers are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that no content from the sets is leaked and for the same have kept shoot locations a secret. There will also be multiple vanity vans to protect the look of Prabhas,” added the source. 

Saaho will see Prabhas in an action-packed avatar, while Shraddha Kapoor will be seen playing his love interest. The film will also feature Neil Nitin Mukesh in a pivotal role. 

A UV Creations production Saaho is produced by Vamsi and Pramod and directed by Sujeeth. The music for the film is being composed by the superhit trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and the lyrics is written by the very talented Amitabh Bhattacharya. So, not just the film, we can have high hopes from the music too.
