Filmmakers use the body double for the heroes for risky stunts. It is a common thing in the film industry because an injury to the hero will cause delay in the shoot and it will incur huge loss to the producers.
Similarly, ‘Baahubali’ makers used a body double for Prabhas. His body double is Kiran Raj, and he has striking similarities with Prabhas. Usually body doubles will not get the limelight, but Kiran Raj got lucky and he became a hero.
His debut film ‘Karali’ has been launched yesterday in Film Nagar Daiva Sannidhanam. ‘Baahubali’ cinematographer Senthil clapped for Muhurtam shot. Director Veera Shankar switched on the camera. ‘Terror’ movie producer Aara Mastan directed the muhurtam shot.
Kiran Raj has spoken about Baahubali during the launch. He said that ‘Baahubali’ film was like a university for them. They have learned several things from the movie such as discipline from Valli madam, hard work from Rajamouli, humility from Prabhas.
