First look: Rana Daggubati in ‘The Ghazi Attack’ and ‘Baahubali 2’

The first look of Telugu actor Rana Daggubati from his upcoming movies ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ and ‘The Ghazi Attack’ have been unveiled. Rana rang in his 32nd birthday on Wednesday, December 14, and on the occasion, the actor treated his fans to his character posters of the two films.

He took to his Twitter handle to shared the posters of his Naval officer look from ‘The Ghazi Attack’ and the villainous Bhalladeva, and tweeted, “The protector of the Indian waters and the King of Mahishmathi!! #Ghazi #the GhaziAttack #KingBhalla #BaahubaliTheConclusion.”

Rana plays the protagonist in the war film by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, and his look is very sober in his white Naval uniform and the neat trimmed and tidy beard. On the other hand, his look as king Bhalladeva in the S S Rajamouli directorial is quite the opposite. The image has Rana carrying a huge mace and sporting a ferocious look with a frown on his face. His rippling biceps are on display and has a heavy beard and hair tied into a man bun.

Director Rajamouli also tweeted the poster writing, “Mighty Bhallaladeva / Palvalthevan out to destroy... #KingBhalla #KingPalvalthevan #Baahubali2.”

Dharma Productions also shared Rana’s character poster by tweeting, “@RanaDaggubati in a navy uniform, in the first look of #Ghazi is making people swoon all over!”

‘The Ghazi Attack’, India's first war-at-sea film, is based on the mysterious drowning of Pakistani submarine PNS Ghazi, during the 1971 Indo-Pak war. The Hindi-Telugu bilingual film has been directed by debutant Sankalp Reddy and also stars Taapsee Panu. It is slated to hit screens on February 17, 2017.

On the other hand, ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ is one of the desperately awaited films, after its first part ‘Baahubali – The Beginning’, which released in July, 2015, left the audience with a mystery which the second part will unravel.

The epic drama also starring Prabhas, Tamannaah Bhatia and Anushka Shetty, is set to release on April 28 next year.
