Prabhas, post his Baahubali success, is the hero who has constantly picked up mainstream Hindi Cinema projects and has many big-ticket mainstream commercial films in the offing.

Baahubali was followed by Saaho which attracted huge crowds to the theatres and the best is yet to come as Prabhas is working on Om Raut’s Adipurush where he plays the character of Lord Ram cast against Saif Ali Khan's Raavan.

Prabhas, who has consolidated his image as one of India’s best action heroes, is celebrating his birthday today. The Baahubali actor defying the geographical and cultural barriers emerged as a pan-India action-drama genre hero by dint of his most successful film Baahubali where he played the role of a righteous prince of an ancient kingdom. While veteran actors like Rajnikant, Chiranjeevi, Mohanlal, or Kamal Haasan have ruled the hearts of people of the North for decades, the grand-standing and recognition Prabhas has got is truly unprecedented. These actors did step out to embrace the Hindi cinema for a film or two mostly in a multi-starrer but they largely stayed focused on South-India centric films. Prabhas, post his Baahubali success, is the hero who has constantly picked up mainstream Hindi Cinema projects and has many big-ticket mainstream commercial films in the offing. Baahubali was followed by Saaho which attracted huge crowds to the theatres and the best is yet to come as Prabhas is working on Om Raut’s Adipurush where he plays the character of Lord Ram cast against Saif Ali Khan’s Raavan. In another project, Prabhas has been cast in a sci-fi film against Deepika Padukone.

Even before he emerged as the top action-drama hero, Prabhas delivered a number of commercial successes that worked well in the South. However, these are films that few people in the North are actually aware of. Wouldn’t it be fitting to watch some of Prabhas’s pre-Baahubali films on his birthday? Here is the list of films that his fans can binge watch on the occasion of his birthday.
