There can be no argument on the topic of the most popular Indian film of the running year. Hands down, ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ is certainly the film which attracted every film lover to the cinema halls. The chemistry between Prabhas and Anushka Shetty,  the two leads in the film was striking. When the glamorous Shetty a.k.a Devasena was asked to name his favourite cricketer, she revealed that she has a huge crush on Rahul Dravid.

The film caught many eyebrows because of its crisp storyline and some stunning perfectly carried out special effects. After a mysterious end to the first film of the series, ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’, fans were eager to watch the second film, since that would reveal why did Katappa kill Amarendra Bahubali (played by Prabhas). Anushka’s role was not a very long one in the first film, but the second film gave her much screen space.


After the enormous success of the second film of Bahubali series, Anushka Shetty is a household name now. She portrayed the elegant character of Amarendra Baahubali’s wife, Devasena perfectly. As it turns out, the elegant actress is the super fan of one of the most elegant and classiest personalities to have ever graced the beautiful game of cricket, Rahul Dravid.

When Anushka loved Dravid

From rotating his place in the batting lineup to wearing the wicket-keeping gloves, Jammy has done everything that the team wanted him to do. Recently, Anushka was present in an interview conducted by a famous Telegu entertainment portal.

When a fan asked her to name her favourite cricketer, Anushka bared it all. Not the reply which everyone would have expected, as she swept aside from the general replies like Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli, and said “Rahul Dravid is my favourite cricketer. Ever since I was growing up, I have a crush on him. At one stage, I fell in love with him.”
