When 'Young Rebel Star' Prabhas revealed he is not comfortable with such title

As Telugu star Prabhas celebrates his birthday on Monday, we take a look at the time (before Bahubali released) when he talked about never working in art films.

Actor Prabhas celebrates his birthday on Monday. The Telugu star first made his debut in 2002 with Eeswar, and gained fame two years later when he featured in Varsham. 

By the time the action film Mirchi released in theatres in 2013, he was a popular star and had already got the name of Young Rebel Star. This was much before he gained national stardom with SS Rajamouli's Bahubali The Beginning in 2015 

Did you know that in an interview around the release of Mirchi, Prabhas had told 123Telugu.com that he is not comfortable with titles such as the one given to him? 

Speaking in the interview, at the time when he was working on SS Rajamouli's historic drama, Prabhas said he is not comfortable with titles and just wants to be Prabhas. “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. (laughs)”
