Prabhas Raju Uppalapati is an actor whose fame was restricted to Andhra Pradesh and Telugu films — till Baahubali released. The second part of the film especially catapulted Prabhas to international fame overnight. In just seven weeks, the film has broken all records in India, grossing over Rs 1,500 crore, and taken the film industry by storm.
Born to Siva Kumari and Telugu director and producer Uppalapati Suryanarayana Raju, Prabhas is the youngest child in the family. He made his debut in the Telugu film Eeshwar in 2002, and followed it up with Raghavendra in 2003, but both films failed to impress. However, Prabhas’ next movie, Varsham (2004) was successful and earned him the Best Young Performer at the Santosham Film Awards. In 2005, Prabhas starred in S.S. Rajamouli’s Chatrapati, which ran for over 100 days in 54 cinema halls. It was a huge hit and his screen presence was greatly appreciated.
Over the next few years, Prabhas starred in many films and experienced mixed fortunes. For his performance in Ek Niranjan (2013), the actor received a Filmfare nomination. In 2014, Prabhas made his debut in a Bollywood film with a cameo appearance in Action Jackson, featuring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha and Yami Gautam.
However, it was his 2015 blockbuster Baahubali: The Beginning which catapulted him to fame, becoming the highest grossing movie of the year. The suspense that the film created was phenomenal. In fact, the question — ‘Why did Katappa kill Baahubali?’ frustrated film lovers all over India for two years before it was finally answered in Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.
