When ‘Young Rebel Star’ Prabhas Revealed He Is Not Comfortable with Such Titles

Telugu cinema’s beloved icon, Prabhas, celebrates his birthday today, marking another year in his illustrious career. As we honor the actor’s journey, it’s a perfect time to revisit a significant moment before the grandeur of Bahubali swept across the nation. A time when Prabhas opened up about his discomfort with titles and his commitment to remaining true to his identity.

The Rise to Stardom

Prabhas, who made his silver screen debut in 2002 with “Eeswar,” marked his name in the industry with the release of “Varsham” in 2004. However, it wasn’t until 2013, when the action-packed film “Mirchi” hit the theaters, that he earned the moniker “Young Rebel Star.” This recognition came well before he achieved national stardom with SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus, “Bahubali: The Beginning” in 2015.

A Candid Revelation

In an interview conducted around the release of “Mirchi,” Prabhas shared his thoughts on the titles bestowed upon him. He expressed his discomfort with such accolades, yearning for a simple identity as “Prabhas.” He stated, “You see, I am never really comfortable with titles. If left to me, I will simply use Prabhas. I tried to convince my friends to drop ‘Young Rebel Star’ for ‘Mirchi,’ but they convinced me otherwise. My fans love that title, and they did not want to disappoint them. I agreed to it. My fans are most important to me, and whatever they like is what I will like.”

A Commitment to Entertainment

Prabhas, in the same interview, made it clear that he has no intention of venturing into parallel cinema or art films. He is committed to entertainers that cater to a broader audience. He shared his outlook, saying, “I will stick to entertainers. I will experiment within the limits of my image. For example, ‘Darling’ and ‘Mr. Perfect’ were experiments for me, as I attempted family drama. I may never do a film like ‘Chakram’ again. I did get bored after a string of action films, and that’s why I opted to do films like ‘Darling’ and ‘Mr. Perfect.’ I got my kick, and I am now working on an action entertainer, ‘Bahubali.'”

Recent Ventures and Upcoming Clashes

In recent times, Prabhas graced the screen as Raghava in Om Raut’s “Adipurush,” alongside Saif Ali Khan as Raavan and Kriti Sanon as Janaki. The film, however, faced criticism for its visual effects and the representation of characters.

As we look to the future, Prabhas is set to clash at the box office with none other than Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh’s “Dunki” is scheduled to release on the same day as Prabhas’s “Salaar Part One” by Prashanth Neel, both hitting theaters this Christmas.

Beyond “Salaar,” Prabhas also has Nag Ashwin’s “Kalki 2898 AD” in his lineup, along with two other Telugu films slated for release next year.


In a world of stardom and titles, Prabhas stands out for his humility and unwavering commitment to his fans. His journey from “Eeswar” to “Bahubali” is a testament to his dedication to entertaining the masses. As we celebrate his birthday, let’s remember the Young Rebel Star for his exceptional talent and the down-to-earth persona that sets him apart in the world of cinema.
