This is not a good time for Baahubali superstar Prabhas. The response to his eagerly awaited Ram avatar in Om Raut’s Adipurush is far from encouraging. His last two films Saaho and Radhe Shyam have performed miserably at the boxoffice.But the worst blow is to his knees.

Prabhas’s chronic knee ailment which he acquired while doing the stunts for Baahubali has come back to haunt him.At the event in Ayodhya to launch the first teaser trailer of Adipurush, it was quite obvious to all who were present that Prabhas was facing a huge difficulty in walking.

An eyewitness observes, “He(Prabhas) was having difficulties walking. He had to be helped by his team to go up the steps.He looked uncomfortable.”

It may be recalled that the knee was operated on in April 2022 .Prabhas’ leg had been injured during the action scenes of Baahubali. He had been advised surgery a few years back. But the treatment was not time-specific. So Prabhas postponed it until his pending projects were done. Then there were delays due to Covid.Finally the surgery was performed in April after the release of Radhe Shyam, after which Prabhas took a three-month break to recover.

But now the pain is back.We wish Prabhas a quick and complete recovery.
