It was in 2004 that Rana Daggubati kick-started his association with the Telugu film industry when he produced Bommalata. Thereafter, he proved his finesse as a visual effects coordinator, bagging a Nandi award for his work on the Mahesh Babu starrer Sainikudu.

After giving a strong proof of his brilliance in the technical departments, the then 25-year-old son of noted producer Suresh Babu finally made his big-screen debut when he starred in the 2010 release Leader. Touted as a political drama, the Shekar Kammula-directed venture opened to a thunderous response at the box office and helped the actor win over a legion of fans.



Moreover, the film found tremendous critical acclaim as well and helped Rana bag a Filmfare award.

Shortly after the release of Leader, Rana decided to add another dimension to his career and try his luck in Hindi films. The star began his tryst with Bollywood essaying a pivotal role in Dum Maaro Dum. A moderate success at the ticket window, it saw Rana work alongside the likes of Abhishek Bachchan and Aditya Pancholi. Moreover, he also created quite a buzz amongst movie buffs thanks to his crackling real-life chemistry and alleged link up with Bipasha Basu.



In the years that followed, Rana continued his growth as a performer, delivering powerful performances in films such as Naa Ishtam and Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum.

Moreover, he also acted in a Tamil film titled Arrambam. Directed by Vishnuvardhan, the 2013 release saw Rana share screen space with none other than the iconic Ajith Kumar. Besides, he continued his association with Hindi cinema, essaying a supporting role in the critically acclaimed Baby.

However, it was 2015 that proved to be the red letter year for Rana. The tremendous hype surrounding Bahubali helped him capture the imagination of all and sundry.



Directed by SS Rajamouli, the film saw him essay a negative role and strike up an amazing rapport with onscreen nemesis Prabhas. Shot simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil, it became an international sensation.

Needless to say, the period drama’s success also brought Rana’s well-toned physique and suave style statement into the limelight, establishing him as a fashion guru. Besides Bahubali, Rana was also seen in Rudhramdevi which featured Anushka Shetty in the titular role in the same year.
