Rana Daggubatihad has confessed earlier that his character of Bhallala Deva in SS Rajamouli’s epic historical drama, Baahubali, will definitely be cooler and more power hungry in the grandiose sequel. As promised the actor has returned as more powerfull and meaner.

Rana admits that over the last five months he has been training for two-and-a-half hours every day. “I’ve been shuttling between cardio and weight training,” says the actor who has finished shooting his action sequences for Baahubali: The Conclusion and has just five days’ work left.

“The older Bhallala is stronger and more beefy so I weighed around 108 110 kg for those portions of both the films while his younger version is strong too but leaner so I lost a few kilos for that. My weight has dropped to 92-93 kgs.”

His diet, monitored by trainer Kunal Gir, has been high on carbs and proteins and oil free. “I eat every two-and-a-half hours and there’s a nutritionist present around the clock. He conducts regular check-ups to ensure that we are on the right track. The story will continue from where we left off.”
