Even though four months have passed since the juggernaut called ‘Baahubali 2’ hit screens and set the box office on fire, the mania surrounding its leading man Prabhas just refuses to die down. Yesterday, on the occasion of Ganpati Visarjan, several Baahubali-themed idols were spotted by enthusiasts and they created a buzz amongst movie buffs.
These specially designed idols embodied several popular poses that were immortalised by Prabhas in the ‘Baahubali’ franchise and proved that T-town’s resident ‘Rebel is a household name in the purest sense. Interestingly, Baahubali fever first gripped the Ganesh Chaturthi in 2015 when ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ became a hit at the box office. And, judging by the recent development, it is clear that Baahubali mania is still in full swing.
In case you did not know, the ‘Baahubali’ saga was an epic drama and featured Prabhas in a double role. Directed by SS Rajamouli, it also had Tamannaah, Anushka Shetty and Rana Daggubati in the lead. The supporting cast included Sathyaraj, Nasser and Ramya Krishnan. Revolving around the rivalry between two brothers, it clicked with audiences courtesy its grand visuals and effective performances.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Prabhas. He is currently gearing up for the release of ‘Saaho’. An action-thriller, it features him in a new avatar and will hit screens in 2018. A Sujeet directorial, it also features Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh in the lead. Neil will be playing a ‘mega villain’ in this one.’
