The Baahubali craze continues, but there is a twist in the tale.
Megha and Vijaya's newborn named Baahubali

It has been two weeks since SS Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Conclusion hit the theatres, but the buzz around it refuses to die down. Baahubali has been continuously trending, so much so that a newborn has now been named after Prabhas' character, Baahubali.
It is not surprising when a newborn is named after a character in a famous film. On this occasion, not a human child, but a tiger cub has been given the name of Prabhas' character. The cub was born yesterday at the Nandankanan Zoological Park on the outskirts of Bhubaneshwar.
Baahubali was born to parents Megha and Vijaya along with three other cubs. The cub was named in the presence of Odisha’s Forest and Environment Minister, Bijayshree Routray.
In case the cub Baahubali’s brother (if not the cousin) is named Bhallaladeva, it could have the makings of an animal kingdom version of Baahubali 3, since Rajamouli has made it clear that the live-action Baahubali ends with the second film.
