Prabhas Raju Uppalapati , popularly known as Prabhas is a Tollywood actor and the nephew of Tollywood star and politician Krishnam Raju Uppalapati.
Prabhas's early movies, Eeshwar and Raghavendra, did not fare very well at the box office but he gained stardom with M.S. Raju's film, Varsham, opposite Trisha Krishnan, in 2004. After the success of Varsham, Adavi Ramudu and Chakram did not live up to the expectations of Prabhas's fans. However in September 2005, he made a comeback with the phenomenal blockbuster, Chatrapathhi, opposite actress Shriya Saran. Chatrapati was followed by unsuccessful films such as Pournami, Yogi, and Munna. Munna also starred Illeana opposite him. Despite these unsuccessful ventures, he continues to have a large, loyal fan base among telugu people, especially among females and young men. His latest film Bujjigadu got him much needed success.
