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.
That first baby with Prabhas is so cute! I love his facial expression 🙂
Me too! That’s the best baby. The second baby is a bit too snotty and over it for me. Although I love her sense of style.

Katappa with the SUV is so hahaahhaha 🙂
I meant, Sathyaraj!
See???? This is what I am saying, he disappears into the character that much!
If I understood correctly, the baby in the first photo is actually the little girl who played baby Prabhas 2, which is why I love that drawing with her as model so much (it’s actually what Prabhas and Anushka and their kid would look like!)
*goes back to looking at happy picture before having to face Part 19, sob*
You can also go read my fanfic! Although then they still don’t get to raise the baby even in my version, so maybe not.
But it’s okay, they at least get to raise their daughter and to be together, and y’know, not be dead/imprisoned/in general misery and grief!
*may have reread your fanfic quite a few times as we got to this super-sad part here*
Glad to hear it is helping you! It was certainly carthatic for me to write it. I may have to do another one after I finish this whole thing.
I feel the image of Sivagami must be forever erased from your mind:
Aaaagh! No! My eyes!!!
Devasena in Billa is another one.😀 In one of the interviews with Prabhas and Anushka, the lady asks Anushka, “Is there something you think you can’t do when you’re 50?” and Prabhas goes, “Billa”. 😂
I keep forgetting they were in that terrible terrible movie together. I bet it formed a bond, suffering through the agony of a bad script. In interviews around Queen, Lisa Haydon and Kangana kind of implied that their friendship bond onscreen came naturally since they’d suffered through Rascals together, and that’s the kind of experience that draws you together for life.

Hahhahaha so true! ‘You make lifeling friends when you go through difficulties together’ sort of thing.
Exactly! Kind of get the vibe that SRKajol bonded extra hard on the Karan Arjun and Baazigar sets for the same reasons. Not that those were exactly “bad” movies, but they weren’t the deep acting experience they would have later.

Well hey, she convinced a prince to marry her, she must have used some kind of feminine wiles, right? Pre-marriage and that tight bun, Sivagami could have been a hot little number!

Also, to reinforce the “It’s just a movie” thought, here’s a video put out by the team before Bahubali 1 released (during college exam period in India):
