The first thing that comes to mind when one says Rana Daggubati is Baahubali. Nobody is to blame because that’s kind of impression the actor has created upon us, with his lead antagonist role as Bhallaladeva. His expressions, mannerisms, his character – and most importantly his hulk-like physique have impressed thousands of fans around the world. His beefy, towering presence has had fans in awe of this actor. Remember last year, when he revealed his look for part 2? Our jaws dropped because the actor looked way meaner and bigger than before. Yet again, he made one of the most ruthless characters come alive and send shivers down our spine. But did you know, at one point in time, Rana Daggubati was like any ordinary guy – Tall, lanky and lean. We get why that must be hard to believe so we got proof! We got pictures for you that will speak for themselves:

Yes, that is Bhallaladeva sans muscle and beard…
