One look at hunk hero Prabhas in Baahubali and the next thing that comes to our mind is nothing other than WWF. Because we see such heavy-muscled warriors in that version of fancy wrestling. However, there is a real connection between WWF and Baahubali. Here goes it.
For the kind of look Prabhas essayed in Mirchi, he weighed around 83 kgs. But with Rajamouli asking for a hulk-like-look for Baahubai, our hero has to put on a minimum of 20 kgs of weight. As that is a daunting task, Prabhas and Rajamouli have flown to USA immediately to consult specialists. They have met people who participate in WWF bouts and took tips from them. Diet, muscle building, strength improvisation and maintaing it- Prabhas got inputs about all of them.
That way WWF guys have helped out Baahubali. Currently Rajamouli is busy canning songs and other scenes involving Prabhas and others, while Rana and Anushka are enjoying a schedule break. 2015 is the confirmed release date for Part I of this historical drama.
