SS Rajamouli made history with Bahubali: The Beginning, which became the highest-grossing movie in Indian cinema history at the time. The audience was wowed by the historical drama’s amazing visual effects, excellent cinematography, and flawless performances. Apart from grossing well at the box office, Prabhas became an overnight sensation as a result of the film.
While the actor was well-known in the south, Baahubali boosted him to one of the most well-known actors in the country. Prabhas deserved all of the plaudits he received because he committed several years of his life to the role. According to reports, the actor was paid Rs. 20 crore for his role in the film. While the sum may appear to others to be excessive at first, no one can disagree that Prabhas’ contribution to the picture was immeasurable.
The actor fully immersed himself in the role and delivered a convincing representation of a noble king. S. S. Rajamouli directed this epic fantasy action film, which was produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni under the banner Arka Media Works. Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah, Ramya Krishna, Sathyaraj, and Nassar star in the film, which was shot simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil. This movie is inspired by the epic Mahabharata revealed by director Rajamouli.
The film had a budget of 180 crores (US$25 million) when it was released, making it the most costly Indian film at the time. The film’s net collection is more than Rs 1192 billion in India and $500,000 (Rs 3,616 crores) internationally. Bahubali’s total earnings were Rs. 1,683 billion.
