Baahubali might have given Telugu star Prabhas nationwide fame, but this isn't the first Hindi language film you would have caught him in.He made a guest appearance in the Prabhu Deva-directed 2014 action-comedy Action Jackson. But chances are you might have blinked and missed it.
The Telugu actor wasn't flexing his well-toned muscles in an action scene, though. He was seen shaking a leg with the film's female lead, Sonakshi Sinha, to a Punjabi dance number.
In the song Surya Ast, Punjabi Mast, Sonakshi’s character calls Prabhas by his real name and dances with him on a table top while the male lead, Ajay Devgn, dances in another setting.
This guest appearance was a friendly gesture by Prabhas, who has worked with Prabhu Deva in a number of Telugu films. Action Jackson, however, did not see much action at the box-office and Prabhas's brief Bollywood debut went completely unnoticed. Unlike his contemporary Rana Daggubati, Prabhas didn't get any Hindi film offers till the multi-lingual Baahubali made the entire country sit up and take notice.Currently, the actor is prepping for the release of the sequel to Baahubali, titled Baahubali: The Conclusion.
