Back to the days of Baahubali making time, Prabhas and Rana used to shoot together. Rana not only shared a good rapport with Prabhas, he is also believed to have been in awe of Prabhas’s patience. Yes, what you read is right. These golden words were told by Rana Daggubati during a recent interview. Rana learned a great deal from Prabhas, particularly his patience. He sang praises of Prabhas saying that the Baahubali actor had an unbelievable amount of patience. Before Baahubali, Prabhas delivered a number of blockbuster hits—Mirchi, Chatrapathi among few others. Prabhas could have acted in more than three to four films, during the time period Baahubali was shot, he said. “He waited with patience to accomplish his goal and strive hard for Baahubali. I loved his dedication and integrity towards the film,” said Rana. He didn’t stop there, what he told next is sure to blow your mind away. Did you know this? Rana never met Prabhas until Baahubali happened. Rana revealed that he was not a friend of Prabhas before Baahubali. We became friends while shooting for Baahubali.

Thanks to Rajamouli, for this new friendhip in Tollywood.
