Prabhas is an excellent national star now, although he never wanted to be an actor in the first place.

On the other side, his father, Uppalapati Suryanarayana Raju, always wished for his son to become a hero.

Prabhas wasn't interested in that notion for a long time, but at 19, he told his father that he wanted to be a hero out of nowhere.

His father was taken aback, as Prabhas described in an interview.

Prabhas, as we all know, has been a shy person for a long time. The acting was his last option.

However, his late father, producer, and distributor Suryanarayana Raju, predicted that his son would become a significant star one day.

Even when Prabhas was reluctant about going in front of the camera, his father supported and encouraged him to attempt more and more.

Prabhas stated that he was not interested in films even though he grew up in a film family.

It was his father who gave him the initial push to love acting.
