During a recent interaction with students of the British Film Institute, SS Rajamouli made some interesting revelations about the diet followed by Prabhas while shooting for the ‘Baahubali’ franchise. He said that he did not put the ‘Rebel Star’ on any particular diet. On the contrary, he let him take the call on the matter. Besides this, the celebrated filmmaker also narrated a funny incident involving the much-loved star.
“Once in a month, they will have a cheat meal day; that’s a part of their regime because you’re dieting continuously. On that day, you should see the kind of display he has. 10 – 15 kinds of biriyanis, just biriyanis. No exaggeration. You don’t even know those kinds of biriyanis even exist. Varieties of fish, chicken, mutton, and not just curries, even fries. You can’t just imagine the kind of display he has. We played football that day until 2 AM, and after finishing the game, he came and sat down to eat with all the varieties of food displayed in front of him. Prabhas first ate that and continued eating only after that. So, that is Prabhas for you,” he added,
For the uninitiated, ‘Baahubali’ is touted to be an epic-drama and revolves around the rivalry between two brothers over an ancient kingdom. It hit screens in two parts. The first part was released in 2015 while the sequel hit screens this April. Needless to say, both part emerged runaway hits at the BO. While Prabhas played a double role in ‘Baahubali’, Rana Daggubati essayed the role of the antagonist.
