Actor Prabhas knows how much his fans love him, and feels blessed for all the adulation. One young follower — 11-year-old Aryan — recently celebrated his birthday with a cake that had Prabhas’s picture on it. “Prabhas is really touched by the gesture,” says the actor’s spokesperson. “He has gathered tremendous fan following, especially among kids as his titular character in his hit 2015 film, Baahubali, defines him as a true superhero.” The young fan’s birthday cake story seems like a testimony to that.
Prabhas is happy to know that his audience comprises children, because he plans to come up with Baahubali merchandise. “Fans anyway are eagerly waiting for the second part of the film to hit theatres. The sequel is in the making, but the buzz is strong. Kids can expect games, toys, collectibles and what not,” says a source.
