The craze for the South Indian movie industry has been on the rise constantly. Especially after the release of Bahubali, the industry received its due credits. We were all particularly smitten by Rana Daggubati who played the evil yet magnificent character Bhallaldeva in the movie. Much sweet and charming in real life, Rana Daggubati joined our Editor-in-Chief Kamiya Jani on this episode of Sunday Brunch along with his uncle and South Indian superstar Venkatesh Daggubati. Getting an insight into their lives, the conversation was a delightful one. To know how it went, catch the full video.
Rana Daggubati Talked About Getting ‘Hangry’
This Sunday Brunch was an excuse to know more about the two of them. After getting to know about their traditional Sunday Brunches at home and indulging in Mumbai street food at Hitchki, Rana revealed how particular he is about the timing of his meals. He said that after a point, he cannot bear the hunger and he has to have something to eat.
When we asked him if he follows a specific diet, he revealed that he isn’t bound by what he eats but by when he eats. He admitted that he gets ‘hangry’ if his meals get delayed. Pointing at his uncle, he also shared that Venkatesh Daggubati is even worse at handling hunger. Looks like a genetic trait running in the family.

He Talked About Bulking Up For Bahubali
Compared to Bahubali, there is a significant change in Rana Daggubati’s physique and it had to be addressed. When asked why and how this drastic change happened, he jokingly said that he left Bhallaldeva in Mahishmati. He also shared that he feels like a human now that he has shed all that extra weight.
For more than 5 years, he kept working on putting on weight and the highest he touched was 112 kg. That is some intense commitment, we must say! He also shared that he did not mindlessly binge on everything. Rather, he focussed on his protein intake as well as vigorous weightlifting. We can’t even imagine how intense those years must have been but clearly, the hard work paid off.
Next in this episode, we got to know more about the duo’s relationship. Check out the full video right away!
