Venkata Satyanarayana Prabhas Raju Uppalapati or Prabhas as he is better known is an Indian actor who stars predominantly in Telegu movies. He made his acting debut in 2002 with movie Eeswar alongside Tamil actress Sridevi Vijaykumar, but it did not fare well at the box office.
Prabhas then went on to star in 2003 Telegu movie Raghavendra along with Anshu and Shweta Agarwal, and in 2004 in Varsham and Adavi Ramudu. He was nominated for Filmfare Award for Best Actor - Telugu for Varsham, which had also starred actors Trisha Krishnan and Gopichand in lead roles.
In 2005, he starred in two movies, Chakram and Chhatrapati, and was nominated for Filmfare Award for Best Actor - Telugu for the latter. Directed by SS Rajamouli, the movie also starred Shriya Saran in the lead and it was a huge success at the box office.
The following year, he starred in Pournami alongside Trisha, Charmy, Sindhu Tolani and Rahul Dev. In 2007 he acted in Yogi and Munna, and in 2008 he starred in Bujjigadu alongside Trisha Krishnan and Sanjjanaa.
In 2009, Prabhas acted in two movies, Billa and Ek Niranjan, and was nominated for Filmfare Award for Best Actor - Telugu for the latter. The movie, which also starred Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut in the lead, had received mixed reviews from critics, but that did not stop viewers from loving it, and it did well at the box office in its first week.
The next year, he starred in Telegu movie Darling opposite actress Kajal Aggarwal. The movie was not only a blockbuster at the box-office, it also earned Prabhas a CineMaa Award for Best Actor (Jury).
Prabhas then starred in 2011 movie Mr. Perfect with actresses Kajal Agarwal and Taapsee Pannu playing his love interests, and the following year in movie Rebel. He was nominated for Filmfare Award for Best Actor - Telugu for the former.
In 2013, Prabhas acted in action movie Mirchi, which, along with being one of the highest-grossing Telugu films of that year, also earned him the Nandi Award for Best Actor and also a nomination for Filmfare Award for Best Actor - Telugu. In 2014, he made a special appearance in Hindi movie Action Jackson, which had featured Ajay Devgn in dual roles, alongside Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam and Manasvi Mamgai as the female leads.
The big break for Prabhas came when he starred in 2015 Baahubali: The Beginning, which became the highest-grossing film in India, third highest-grossing Indian film worldwide, and highest-grossing South Indian film, at the time of its release. Starring alongside Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah, the movie earned him a nomination for Filmfare Award for Best Actor - Telugu.
In 2017 he earned another nomination for Filmfare Award for Best Actor - Telugu when he reprised his role from Baahubali: The Beginning in Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. The movie became the first Indian film to ever gross over Rs 1,000 crore in all languages in just ten days, and it is the second highest-grossing Indian film to date.
After a one year break, Prabhas was seen in 2019 movie Saaho opposite Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor. It marks the former's Hindi debut and the latter's debut in south Indian cinema. The movie did not receive favourable reviews from critics, but it had a good opening at the box office.
Prabhas was born on October 23, 1979 in Madras to film producer U. Suryanarayana Raju and his wife Siva Kumari. He has two siblings, a brother and a sister who are both elder to him. He is also the nephew of Telugu actor Uppalapati Krishnam Raju.
Prabhas attended the DNR School, Bhimavaram and graduated with a B.Tech degree from Sri Chaitanya College, Hyderabad.
