Mumbai: ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ had reinvented the conventions of Indian action films, and much of the credit must go the film’s lead actors, Prabhas and Rana Daggubati.

Prabhas, who plays the eponymous warrior king in the film, has especially retained some souvenirs on his body. The high octane action sequences have left permanent injury marks on the actor’s body.

The second instalment of the film, ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion,’ has also not been too kind on him. Though the actor was a lot more cautious while shooting for part two, Prabhas' dedication towards the scene got him injured again.

Prabhas had invested 5 years of his life into Baahubali and now both the injury marks will remain with the actor life long.

The actor is playing two characters in the film- Shivudu is lean (86 to 88 kgs) which has a minimum of body fat of 5 to 6 percent while Baahubali is bulky (105 kgs) and with 8 to 10 percent body fat.

When contacted, the actor's spokesperson said, "Prabhas did all the stunts by himself and had no body double for them. There were many difficult scenes were the team had to take extra precautions but sadly he got a few scars, the worst part is one of the scars is really deep and it will last for a long time."

‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ is slated to release on April 28.
