Did you know ‘Baahubali’ star Prabhas did not want to be a star at all?

One of the greatest star of this decade is Prabhas. The man who was the soul of both the instalments of the mighty ‘Baahubali‘ films, is one the iconic stars who holds a special place in the hearts of all. But, did you know that Prabhas did not aspire to be an actor at all?

In an interview with IANS, Prabhas has narrated his journey as to how he got into acting. His father is an acclaimed producer down South while is uncle too is a great actor. With his family being in this industry, he was asked whether he want to act or not. “My uncle is an actor, my dad is a producer, so they asked me if I was interested, and I was like ‘How can someone act in front of so many people with lights and emote’. I used to feel shy… My parents asked me once or twice (about the decision to be an actor) and I said that it is impossible,” he said.

Further adding, “I had thought I will do some business because I am lazy and I can’t do jobs. I had thought that maybe I will go into hotel business because our family loves food. And north Indian food is very famous in Hyderabad.”

Then what happened. He quipped, “This is what I remember, (though I) actually don’t know what happened inside my mind. One day I was watching my uncle’s film directed by Bapu. I imagined myself in my uncle’s character… Then I think it slowly started somewhere.

One day, I told my friend that I want to act, and he didn’t believe me… He believed me after at least 10 days. And now he is the producer of ‘Saaho’.” (Also Read: Prabhas: I don’t want to break out of the ‘Baahubali’ image)
