Prabhas, who plays a double role (Shivudu and Bahubali) in Bahubali 2 has undergone a complete body transformation for the film. Shivudu is lean (between 86 kg to 88 kg) which has a minimum body fat of 5 to 6 per cent, and on the other hand, Bahubali is bulky (105 kg) with 8 to 10 per cent body fat. This also reminds us of Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, both of whom flirted with their physiques for Dangal and Sultan respectively.
Prabhas had to follow two different diets for getting both the physiques right. For Shivudu, it was a low calorie diet, but for Bahubali he had to follow a heavy diet. The actor also trained hard for the film. Says his trainer, “For the last four years, I feel like I have been living with Prabhas. After a hectic day of shooting too, even though it would be 11 pm, Prabhas wouldn’t miss his workouts. He’s one of the most dedicated and committed people I have worked with. He completely gave himself to his role as Bahubali.”
And he adds, “Prabhas has done risky things for his role and even though the team would take all precautions, he has had some injuries. But that did not stop him. He would undergo physiotherapy sessions and continue his workouts.”
