But according to reports, director, SS Rajamouli had predicted this for Rana Daggubati long back saying he will get married before Prabhas.
On a popular Bollywood chat show, the host had asked SS Rajamouli who would get married first, Prabhas or Rana Daggubati. The director had replied confidently that it will be Rana. Explaining his answer, Rajamouli said that Prabhas will not get married first because "he is very lazy".
Further, SS Rajamouli added that Rana Daggubati lead a very "structured" life and he broke his life into structures like "1-10 years, 10-15 years, 15-20 years". Rajamouli added that marriage for Rana was a "box to be ticked". He also said that another reason that Rana Daggubati might get married first is because he is an extrovert.
