So he has got a volleyball court set up in his courtyard to improve his reflexes, as Baahubali was a war movie and needed better reflexes.

He is one of the shyest actors and keeps himself low profiled. He is also one of the most non-controversial Indian actors and is very down to earth. The humble actor still does not acknowledge himself as a national star.
You won’t believe, Prabhas has received around 6000 marriage proposals so far.
