After a stunning revelation like Rana Daggubati was visually impaired in one eye, the makers have another surprise in store. As per media reports, the baby who played infant Mahendra Baahubali in the film is actually a Girl.

The scene where Rajamata Sivagami played by Ramya Krishnan gets drowned holding the baby above her head is one iconic visual piece in the history of Indian cinema. Moreover, this particular scene was used as the very first poster of Baahubali when the film’s promotions kick-started a few years ago.

Named Akshitha Valslan, the baby who played infant Mahendra Baahubali is said to be only 18-day-old when her scenes were canned for almost five days for the biggest Indian blockbuster ever. Akshitha is the daughter of Valslan, who was the production executive for Baahubali in Kerala.

 That’s how the baby got the lucky opportunity of becoming part of Baahubali. Interim, Baahubali has become the first Indian film to gross Rs 1000 crores at the worldwide box office and the film hasn’t slowed down yet.
