Prabhas recently unveiled statue at a wax museum in Mysore has sparked significant criticism from fans and well-wishers due to its lack of resemblance to the ‘Rebel Star.’ Many fans are urging the authorities to remove it from display, as the only recognizable feature is the Baahubali costume.
In response, Baahubali producer Shobu Yarlagadda has taken notice of the situation and clarified that this statue is not an officially licensed work. He emphasized that all rights to the Baahubali franchise, including characters and story elements, are under his control.
Without his explicit permission, no commercial activities involving Baahubali are allowed. It’s worth noting that Prabhas already has a statue at Madame Tussauds in Bangkok, making him the first south Indian actor to achieve this honor.
The creation of that statue followed all necessary protocols and received the required permissions and measurements. The next steps Shobu Yarlagadda takes to address this matter remain to be seen, as fans eagerly await a resolution regarding the controversial statue in Mysore.
