SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ may have opened to a thunderous Box Office response and brought the star cast international fame. If Prabhas, the hero in Baahubali, has been basking under the glory of the film’s success, its antagonist Rana Daggubati aka Bhallaladeva too has been heaped with much praise.
His perfectly toned body and attitude wooed millions of people. So, we thought this would be the perfect time to dive deeper into his real life and unveil some amusing and interesting facts about the real Rana.
Rana in a Telugu chat show confessed that he cannot see from his right eye. Rana said: “Should I tell you one thing? I am blind in my right eye. I see only from my left eye. The one you see is someone else’s eye which was donated to me after his death. If I close my eye, I can see no one.”
Don’t go by his bulky and well-built physique as the actor is a softie by heart. Yes, Rana is quite an emotional person in real life and he often has emotional breakdowns while watching sad scenes in movies.
Coming from a filmy background, one would have expected the actor to take an easy route in Bollywood, but Rana chose a different route. Beginning his career as a Model he went on to be a Visual Effects producer before entering the acting line. Rana won the State Nandi Award for Best Special Effects in 2006 for the Telugu film Sainikudu starring Mahesh Babu.
Rana Daggubati’s modeling and acting skills are all known and appreciated, not many know that Rana has a keen interest in photography. He holds a degree in Industrial Photography.
