The Baahubali franchise has found a fan in Hollywood actor Winston Duke, who played M’Baku in Marvel’s Black Panther. Duke hailed the film as “one of his favourites and called Prabhas as the ‘king’ and ‘long live’. Duke took to Instagram to share his love for the film and Prabhas by sharing the images from the film. He wrote, “Watching one of my fav’s #Baahubali”.
SS Rajamouli’s film took Indian cinema to a global level and also helped the popularity of the stars transcend boundaries. After the period film, Prabhas will appear in Saah, his forst ever film after Baahubal, so people have huge expectaions form him.
The pleasure is all mine. Thank you for the masterpiece👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿 !!!
