It’s always odd when you see period actors in modern clothing, right? Like, Colin Firth (The One True Darcy) never looks quite right to me in jeans. But, on the other hand, the Bahubali cast in modern clothes does make me think “oh good, it’s just a movie! I don’t have to be so sad/scared/angry about it.” And I thought it might cheer us all up to share that experience this Friday. Feel free to put your favorite “happy happy!” photos of these actors in the comments, if I missed any.
I’m just gonna start at the top, with the photo that is so cute it launched a viral fanart picture around the internet.
OMG that baby!!!! And also Prabhas, with the big smile and the beard and all.
And now I am seeing “related photos”, and people keep handing him babies! Maybe something about his persona? He seems so nice and kind of shy and sweet in interviews, like he would be good with a baby. Although this particular baby is really not into it, much more “yeah, it’s a movie star, so what?” than the last one who was all “GLEE!”
Here’s Anushka Shetty with a puppy.
Here’s Anushka Shetty with a different puppy.
Here’s Anushka Shetty with both puppies
(Relatedly, should I get a dog? I kind of want a dog. But then I work all day and live an apartment, so maybe that’s not a good idea)
And here’s Anushka Shetty with 5 puppies, which is really just too many puppies.
Here’s Rana Daggubatti without a shirt.
Here he is again, but in black and white so it’s artsy.
Here he is shirtless with a beard and a fitness professional.
Here’s Ramya Krishnan gesturing with her hair down.
Here’s Ramya Krishnan gesturing with a braid
Here’s Ramya Krishnan gesturing with a sari
And finally, here’s Ramya Krishnan stealing Prabhas’ territory, and holding a baby
Here’s Tamannah Bhatia with Shahrukh Khan
Here they are again
And here she is with Ajay Devgan
And Akshay Kumar
And Akshay in sunglasses
And after Akshay must come Saif Ali Khan
And finally, here is Sathyaraj with an SUV
In evening clothes
Adopting a dog
and in cool guy sunglasses
So, if you are depressed after Bahubali 2, just imagine Prabhas going to an afterlife filled with babies, Anushka playing with puppies all day, Rana in heaven just being half naked all the time like he likes, Ramya finally being allowed to let down her hair both figuratively and literally, Tamannah meeting every famous person in the world, and Kattappa (poor Kattappa!) leaving Mahishmati and buying a sweet ride, going to clubs, getting a dog, and wearing sunglasses like he just don’t care.
