There is no stopping for Prabhas after the release of Baahubali. He has become a National star after the super success of the Baahubali franchise. Now, his upcoming films are being made in international languages as well. That proves Prabhas is no more an Indian star but a global icon too. Now, he has become the no.1 South Asian celebrity in the world for 2021 by the UK-based Eastern Eye weekly newspaper.
Prabhas secured the top spot by beating many South Asian celebrities from the field of cinema, music, television, literature and social media. Eastern Eye entertainment editor, Asjad Nazir, who compiled the list said that Prabhas has drawn attention to the regional films in India and showed that Bollywood is no longer the boss of Indian cinema. He added that Prabhas’ Baahubali also inspired many films to get released in multiple languages simultaneously.
British Pakistani actor Riz Ahmed got the second position on the list and Priyanka Chopra stood in third place. Indian-American Mindy Kaling secured the fourth spot and popular singer Shreya Goshal remained in the fifth spot.
