Rebel Star Prabhas is now a household name across the country, thanks to the enormous success of the Baahubali franchise. The popularity of Prabhas outgrew the Telugu states when Baahubali hit the screens in 2015. Even as the actor did not have a release for the next two years and did not do many TV commercials, his newly earned nation-wide popularity remained intact. And when Baahubali: The Conclusion came out, he became an overnight sensation and his popularity in other international markets also received a massive boost. Prabhas is now a pan-India star. However, this success did not come to him by doing just two expensive costume dramas. It happened to him 12 years and 18 films later.
