Meet Akshitha Valslan, The Girl Who Plays Mahendra Baahubali In SS Rajamouli's Magnum Opus
SS Rajamouli's directorial has made almost everyone its fan so much so that they'd want to know everything about the two films in the Baahubali franchise.
Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has not just broken all existing box office records but has also set a new benchmark in terms of filmmaking. SS Rajamouli's directorial has made almost everyone its fan so much so that they want to know everything about the two films in the Baahubali franchise.
In one of the most striking sequences of the film, Sivagami can be seen protecting a newborn baby - Mahendra Baahubali. The kid is Amrendra Baahubali's son and a rightful heir to the throne of Mahishmati. But what has caught everyone's fancy is the fact that the child artist who plays Mahendra is a girl, not a boy.
According to a report in Manorama Online, the child artist is Akshitha Valslan, who was just 18 days old when she featured as the warrior prince. Akshitha's father Valslan was the production executive for the movie scenes shot in Kerala and that's how the makers spotted Akshitha.
Just a few days back, a picture of Prabhas holding a child went viral. While many thought it was the same kid, some said it was a fan's child who came to meet him on sets.
Baahubali: The Conclusion, featuring Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati and Tamannaah in the lead, released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam in over 6500 screens across India, and in 9000 plus screens worldwide.
