New Delhi: Baahubali: The Beginnng and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, released in 2015 and 2017 respectively, are extremely successful films in Indian cinema. Together, they have collected over Rs 2500 crore at the box office. These period action dramas, directed by SS Rajamouli, have not only achieved high financial success but also established Prabhas as a popular actor across India. Prabhas portrayed the dual roles of Amarendra Baahubali and Mahendra Baahubali, which added to his fame.

Prabhas’ Statue in Mysore

Even after six years, Baahubali continues to maintain a cult following, and audience excitement for the film remains undiminished. Recently, a fan of Prabhas shared a photo on social media (previously known as Twitter) showing his statue in the Baahubali avatar at the Mysore wax museum. The picture quickly became popular and spread widely.

A statue of Prabhas, depicting his Baahubali character, was recently placed in a museum in Mysore, Karnataka. However, this has caused dissatisfaction among the creators of Baahubali. After seeing the statue, which looks noticeably different from Prabhas’ portrayal in the film, producer Shobu Yarlagadda expressed his anger on social media (previously known as Twitter) and threatened to take action against the museum.

Shobu Yarlagadda tweeted that the museum had not obtained permission before installing Prabhas’ statue. The statue showcased the actor in his Baahubali attire. He used social media to criticize the museum’s team for their actions.
