They delivered Telugu hits like Billa and Mirchi, before director SS Rajamouli got them onboard for his big project Baahubali. During the extensive promotions of Baahubali 2, the team was thrown with the major question about “Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali”. But in one particular interaction with her fans on social media, Anushka was served asked something different – “Who is sexier – Prabhas or Rana Daggubati?” Pat came Anushka’s reply, “Prabhas… Rana is like my bro… He calls me brother, I call him brother.”

Anushka’s reply did not quite leave many surprised considering rumours of Prabhas and Anushka being “more than friends”. Fans wish to see them together so much, that there are more number of fan clubs dedicated to the two of them, than any of Bollywood’s rumoured couples.

Check out the video where Anushka Shetty aka Sweety from Baahubali picks Prabhas over Rana Daggubati.

Anushka, who is one of the top notch and highest paid Telugu stars, has done a historical fiction film Rudhramadevi with Rana. While Rana played the antagonist in Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion, Anushka played both mother and wife of Prabhas’ two characters – Mahendra Baahubali and Amarendra Baahubali respectively.

In the same fan interaction, Anushka added, “The toughest challenge for me was to play the love interest of Amarendra Baahubali and also the mother to Mahendra Baahubali. But for Rajamouli, I would not have been able to pull off this challenge.”

    We are glad that finally a regional blockbuster is being highlighted as an Indian movie. people up north are so happy to see these Actors, Prabhas and hka,they are great actors ,and their performance is superb.they also come across as simple people, such a refreshing change from the Bollywood film stars. Infact I would say these stars Prabhas and hka should carry ondoinggoodmovies in the South but they should be screened herein thenorth as well as we now want to watch them more and there is such excellent work happening in the South and we want to seemore of Rajamouli, hka and Prabhas. There is so much warmth and respect that these actors share with their director.their interviews are so wonderful.and ofcourse the lead Pair Prabhas and hka have such chemistry. their expressions are so exquisite, their Chemistry was crack , it was phenomenal, it left us wanting more. why didRajamouli remove the kiss, it was beautiful not crass.they shd hv had more scenes.
