Looking back, many will agree that Prabhas's physique in ‘Baahubali’ was truly a trendsetter of sorts. With his hard training to a tough diet plan, the actor had managed to pull off a kind of physique that was truly inspirational. The makers of ‘Baahubali’ had gifted Prabhas gym equipment worth Rs 1.5 crore to get beefed up for his role in the film which was monitored by professional bodybuilder Laxman Reddy. The regular diet plan of the actor consisted of fish, egg whites, vegetables, and almonds. The actor took six meals every day and his diet didn’t include rice. The total calorie intake of Prabhas while shooting for Baahubali was between 2000 to 4000 calories a day.
As revealed by Mr. Reddy, Prabhas weighed some 100 kilos for playing the part of Amarendra Baahubali but his role as Shivudu, as seen in Baahubali: The Beginning, required him to sport a toned body. "As Baahubali, Prabhas had to build a lot of muscle and for the son's character, Shivudu, he had to look lean. His physique fluctuated for more than four years; that was difficult. Prabhas weighed almost 100 kgs with his body fat percentage staying in the range of 9-10. For the younger character, he had to build a toned body with minimal muscles”.
