Shocking! Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati reveals he is blind in one eye
Rana Daggubati is an household name all over India thanks to the gargantuan success of the series Baahubali and the impact that his character Bhallala Deva left in the viewer’s mind. Rana fitted the bill perfectly as the gigantic and masculine Bhallala Deva who locked horns with the equally towering Baahuabli, played by Prabhas. He has already made a mark in Tamil and Hindi with movies like Bangalore Natkal, Baby and the recently released Ghazi Attack.
However, there is more to Rana than the gigantic figure. The actor in a recent chat session on a popular Telugu channel revealed that he was blind from one eye, which was given to him by a donor during his childhood.
He is quoted saying, “I will tell you something, I am blind from my right eye. I can see only through my left eye. The one you see is someone else’s eye which was donated to me after his death. If I close my left eye, I can see no one. LV Prasad operated me when I was young. All this pain and sufferings will go away one day but you have to gear up and keep them happy always.” He urged the contestants that being blind should not stop them from going strong in life.
Meanwhile, Baahubali 2 opened to phenomenal response from the audience across the world. The movie has grossed over 200 crores from the 2 days theatrical run.
