Our Tollywood young rebel star Prabhas played the iconic character of Mahendra and Amarendra Baahubali in SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali series. Years after the film’s success, it has been brought to attention that a wax statue of Prabhas’ has been installed at a museum in Hyderabad. He became the first South Indian star to achieve this feat. Actually this happened in 2017 itself. This wax statue is located in Madame Tussauds Museum in Bangkok.
Recently, a fan page of Prabhas on X, shared a picture of the actor’s wax statue at a museum in Mysore. However, it did not go down well with ‘Baahubali’ producer Shobu Yarlagadda. He revealed that it was not licensed work and no permission was sought before the installation. He tweeted: This not an officially licensed work and was done without our permission or knowledge. We will be taking immediate steps to get this removed. No response has been received from the museum management.
It is also in the form of Baahubali. It is being trolled on social media. This wax figure also hung there for a few months. As these photos have recently gone viral, fans are commenting that he looks more like RamCharan. Maybe it’s Magadheera statue. Another netizen wrote: Sir except Bahubali armour, it’s not Prabhas at all.
