New Delhi: From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, there would be hardly any cine buff who doesn’t know Prabhas. From being unable to find a firm footing in the South Indian entertainment industry to becoming a household name all over India, Prabhas rose to astronomical levels of success.
Now that Prabhas has won the hearts of millions of his fans, it is surprising that most are not aware of his real name. If you are one of them, then continue to read below.
What is the real name of Prabhas?
Prabhas is the son of Telugu producer Narayana Raju whose real name is Uppalapati Venkata Suryanarayana Prabhas Raju. Now you must have already guessed the reason for Prabhas changing his name. Yes, the correct answer is that it is indeed too long and would make it hard to remember and pronounce his name.
Back to Back flops but still among the top actors
It feels like the script is upside down for Prabhas’ life. The Radhey actor has been in the industry since 2002. Despite struggling during the early years of his career, he managed to give some hit movies like Varsham, Chatrapathi, Billa, and Darling. But he failed to generate any USP amongst actors like Mahesh Babu, Allu Arjun, and Pawan Kalyan.
However, Prabhas hit the jackpot when he caught the eye of SS Rajamouli for his massive project of Bahubali. Now, Bahubali’s success story needs no retelling.
What matters more is how Prabhas became the face of pan-India stars after working in the Bahubali franchise.
However, while Prabhas quickly had many Hindi and South Indian projects like Saaho and Radhey Shyam lined up for him, unfortunately, none of it worked positively for the actor.
Adipurush to decide Prabhas’ fate
But even this couldn’t stop directors like Om Raut to put the weight of rs.500 crores on the shoulders of Prabhas with Adipurush.
Now Adipurush’s success or lack thereof will decide the direction of Prabhas’ career ahead.
