The first look for the upcoming movie Sahoo, starring the global star Prabhas has been released on the eve of his birthday, and it seems that we’re in for a moody thriller, as Prabhas can be seen in the poster, wearing a long coat that almost hides his face. The poster has created immense buzz on the social media and has been met with admiration from everyone in the entertainment industry.
Prabhas has probably become the greatest blockbuster star of the decade because of Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The conclusion, movies that have become the highest grosser if their respective yeas and have spawned an entire fandom that reaches from India to the entire world. The movie gave him an opportunity that will make so many actors jealous, and he committed to it so fully that his performance was lauded by the audience as well as the critics. Today, on his 37th birthday, we’d like to tell you one of the lesser known facts about the actor who has become such a sensation in India and beyond.
1-His real name is VenKata Satyanarayana Prabhas Raju Uppalapati.
2-He didn’t want to become an actor. Yes, now it seems impossible that anyone else would’ve played the role of Amarendra Baahubali, but if Prabhas is to be believed, he never wanted to become an actor, until he was one, and had ambitions to become a hotel manager instead. We’re all lucky that he chose the right career path.
3-Prabhas has achieved something that the likes of Rajnikanth haven’t been able to yet, he got his own wax statue in Madame Tussauds, Bangkok and is the first South Indian actor to do so.
