The Telugu audience couldn’t easily forget the box-office records of Baahubali. Moreover, the actors and technicians got immense popularity across the country. The film drew the attention of every other film industry and people started referring to it as a benchmark of grandeur. Prabhas and Rana became household names in Bollywood too. However, the film received criticism and comments from several actors and technicians. During promotions of his upcoming film Bichagada Majaka, senior actor Suman made some controversial comments about the film. He called Rana Daggubati the real hero of Baahubali instead of Prabhas.
Suman said that the directors are presenting villains in powerful roles and the audience are appreciating such films. This change is significant across all south industries. Moreover, he heaped praises on the director SS Rajamouli for the presentation of villains in his films. He said, “Rana is the real hero of Baahubali, not Prabhas. If you notice, Rana’s feet slipped and he falls in the fire and dies in climax. Prabhas doesn’t even touch him or push him into the fire. This scene implies that Rana’s character was powerful till the end. Directors need guts to showcase such powerful villain roles.” During the release of Baahubali: The Beginning, there were rumors that Rana dominated Prabhas in many scenes. Suman stirred the controversy by calling Rana the real hero of Baahubali. We have to wait for the reaction of audience and fans for his comments.
