The epic period drama franchise ‘Baahubali’ headlined by Pan India star Prabhas shattered all box office records and ever since there was no looking back for the megastar, who celebrates his birthday today!
Prabhas’ fandom is on another level not just in India but internationally as well. Apart from having cash registers ringing at the box office, everything from firecrackers to thalis was named after his iconic character ‘Baahubali’ on his home turf.
Prabhas made his debut with the 2002- Telugu release ‘Eeswar’. His 2015 blockbuster ‘Baahubali-The Beginning’ followed by ‘Baahubali-2 The Conclusion’ in 2017 made him a household name. He did a couple of Hindi films later. He will soon star in ‘Adipurush’ in the character of Lord Rama. Saif Ali Khan, Kriti Sanon, Devdatta Naga, Trupti Toradmal, and Sunny Singh are also part of the ambitious project.
Prabhas is now part of 4 Pan-India films the mythological magnum from ‘Adipurush’, the action drama ‘Salaar’, Nag Ashwin’s science fiction film ‘Project K’ with Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan to Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Spirit, which also marks his career’s 25th film.
What’s more fascinating about these projects is that they are not just tailor-made for theatrical experiences but also for pan-Indian audiences that include the masses and classes. None of these films cater to a single market and are scaled as big-All India, multiple languages releases.
Here are five action movies to binge-watch on his birthday.
