Actor Prabhas is overwhelmed with the National Film Award honours for S.S. Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali: The Beginning.
The film bagged two honours including Best Feature Film at the 63rd National Awards, which were announced in New Delhi on Monday.
“It is overwhelming that Baahubali has been recognised as the Best Film at the National Awards. Playing the role of Baahubali was one of the most special things of my career. I’m very thankful to Rajamouli sir to have the faith in me to play such an important part of the film,” Prabhas said in a statement.
Baahubali, which raked in over Rs. 600 crore via its theatrical release, is the story of two brothers warring for the ownership of a kingdom.
The film has also starred Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia and Anushka Shetty.
