Prabhas reportedly gave five years of his life to Baahubali. He stopped signing film at the peak of his career to dedicate himself fully to this magnum opus. While many doubted his decision, there was a time when the Telugu star also ran out of money. But he did not step back from his decision. And now, with the film’s release and the kind of reception it is receiving, it looks like all his hardwork has got paid. Baahubali: The Conclusion is not just breaking records at the box office, but its main lead Prabhas has now also got immortalised as a wax statue, that too in his Baahubali avatar.
The dream of Prabhas fans just came true as the actor has become the first South Indian actor to get his wax statue at the Madame Tussauds’ Bangkok edition in his Baahubali look. Ever since trade analyst Ramesh Bala broke the news, the stills of Prabhas have gone viral leaving his fans in a frenzy. The Baahubali mania has engulfed the entire globe. Not only in India but people across the world have been talking about the SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus.
What makes this news even bigger is the fact that no one in the history of South Indian cinema, not even superstars like Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Mohanlal or Mammootty, has ever got a waxed. The feat has been attained only by Bollywood’s A-listers who have had the opportunity to become immortal through their statues at the several Madam Tussauds’ museums across the world.
Earlier, announcing the news, SS Rajamouli had declared, “Very happy to announce that Madame Tussauds is making a wax statue of our PRABHAS… First South Indian to be honoured thus. The statue will be unveiled at Bangkok and subsequently will be toured all over the world,” Rajamouli added.
