- Prabhas had said he never considered acting as an option
- Bhakta Kannappa is what reportedly made Prabhas change his mind
- The movie starred his uncle Krishnam Raju
There is no confirmation if Bhakta Kannappa is the movie he's talking about but the 1976 film did star Krishnam Raju, Prabhas' uncle, as the protagonist. Directed by Bapu, the movie was also produced by Prabhas' father Uppalapati Surya Narayana Raju.
In the previous interview to news agency IANS, a "lazy" Prabhas confessed that he would have owned a business by now, had he not taken up acting as a career: "I had thought I will do some business because I am lazy and I can't do jobs. I had thought that maybe I will go into hotel business because our family loves food. And north Indian food is very famous in Hyderabad."
"My uncle is an actor, my dad is a producer, so they asked me if I was interested, and I was like 'How can someone act in front of so many people with lights and emote'. I used to feel shy... My parents asked me once or twice and I said that it is impossible," the actor had added.
