Prabhas was born to film producer U. Suryanarayana Raju and his wife Siva Kumari. He is the youngest of three children, with an elder brother Pramod Uppalapati and sister Pragathi. His uncle is Telugu actor Krishnam Raju Uppalapati.

Prabhas started his movie career with Eeswar in 2002. In 2003, he was the lead in Raghavendra. In 2004, he appeared in Varsham. He continued his career with Adavi Raamudu and Chakram. He has made more fans among Bollywood buffs after the release of the Baahubali, and his fan base is growing each passing day. Prabhas is the first South Indian star to have his own wax statue at Madame Tussauds, Bangkok.

Prabhas had admitted in the past that he never thought of becoming an actor, and in fact wanted to be a hotelier instead. Prabhas apparently wanted to binge on chicken and Biryani, and hence, become an hotelier. Chicken biryani is his favourite dish. Prabhas has watched Munna Bhai MBBS and 3 Idiots almost 20 times. He is even a bigger fan of Raju Hirani.

Prabhas was so dedicated to Baahubali that he worked only on the two-part movie for almost four years, and didn’t sign any other project in that period. In order to work on his physique for the movie, Prabhas played volleyball as part of his exercise regime. He started loving the sport so much that he had built a court in his home so that he could play the game whenever he wants. Prabhas had apparently gained about 30 kg to get that physique in Baahubali, and for that, he had to undergo a lot of mental as well as physical pressure.

Prabhas was offered fitness brand endorsement for Rs 5.5 crore but he apparently rejected it due to Baahubali Filming. After hearing the Baahubali script, he had so much faith about the movies success that he never cared about his fee.
