The success of Baahubali has made Prabhas and Rana, a household name not only in India; they are popular across the world as well. Recently, the director of the magnum opus, SS Rajamouli said this at the screening of Baahubali 2 at the British Film Institute.
While the actors were on a strict diet during the entire period of film making, which ran into years, the director also allowed them a cheat day in a month, on which they could feast on whatever they want.
Apparently actor Prabhas is a biriyani aficionado and he used to consume 15 varieties of biriyanis on those days. The director said that Prabhas used to eat biriyanis made of fish, mutton, chicken and many other varieties. He also said that Prabhas has a liking for chutneys. Recalling an incident, he said that on one day, his brother-in-law has to go back home and wake up his wife to prepare the chutney and bring it for Prabhas. Rajamouli added that they used to play football till the wee hours of the night and then used to sit down to eat the meal, on such cheat days.
