Anushka Shetty, who is known for humble nature and impeccable acting skill, has always been linked with her Baahubali co-star Prabhas. Talking about that, she recently said, “I have known Prabhas for over 15 years now and he is one of my 3 a.m friends. We are usually linked up because both of us are not married and make an amazing on screen pair. Had there been anything between both of us, it would have been out by this time. Both of us are the same kind of people who don’t hide any emotions if we are involved.”
