Rana, the name is quite a rage among women film goers in Telugu. Known for his tall, towering and muscular built, Rana Daggubati had indeed come a long way. Starting out first as a producer and a visual effects supervisor, it took some time for the stone faced lad to adapt into acting. Rana may have had set backs at the beginning, but he had ultimately proved that there is more incoming with his growing versatility in performances.
As the dashing hero turns 31, here are five of Rana’s films which prove that the young heir to the Ramanaidu legacy is raring to go places!
Rana made his debut with Leader. A wise selection that accentuated his quiet and contemplating demeanor. Critics had instantly loved his portrayal in the film while fans took to following him actively thereafter. Rana made a commendable entry into Tollywood with leader.
Nenu Naa Rakshasi
The film may not have made instant impact at the box office, but Rana Daggubati managed to showcase the romantic portrayal with this one. Playing the character of ‘Abhimanyu’, Rana made it a point to explain that he was ready for some experimentation.
Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum
Easily one of his much appreciated roles, Rana Daggubati started looking like serious stuff with Krish’s directorial. Starring opposite an opulent actress like Nayanthara, the magic of unconventional story, casting and portrayal had fetched Rana due accolades.
Baahubali: The Beginning
Rana perhaps had nailed his seat with Baahubali. A risky career choice taken at a young age to play the antagonist paved way for etching Rana’s name forever in the pages of film history as Bhallala Deva. Perhaps nobody else would have fit the bill, going head to head in terms of might and power opposite Prabhas. Rana walked away with standing ovation and more projects.
Playing a period role in a strong woman centric film like this one is more of a gamble. Rana pulled it off with élan, even in a competitive multi starrer. Despite of his peers having chunkier roles in the film, he managed to steal his space in the league.
