While he was a big deal in Tollywood even before the franchise, his fame shot up to a whole new level countrywide after he starred in the period drama. Honoring such a great actor, let us look into the six all-time classic films of our Darling Prabhas.

Baahubali

Nobody would have portrayed the role of Baahubali better than Prabhas. Since then, he has been called Baahubali. After the success of the movie, Prabhas has been signing only pan-India films with huge budgets.

Varsham

'Varsham' is one of the films that always stands as a cult classic in Tollywood when it comes to love stories. Directed by Sobhan, the film was the first blockbuster in Prabhas' career in which he essays the role of an unemployed youngster named Venkat who fights against a ruthless politician for his love. 'Varsham' struck the right chord with the Telugu viewers and emerged as the maiden blockbuster for the handsome hunk in Tollywood. Songs scored by DSP for this film are evergreen and still on the playlists of many Telugu movie buffs .
