  • Katappa is my bae, Twinkle Khanna wrote on Instagram
  • Twinkle said Akshay's not pleased with her for calling Nitara, Katappa
  • Baahubali is making box office history globally
Actress Twinkle Khanna saw S S Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Conclusion more than two weeks after it hit the screens. But the effect of the film was still overwhelming on Twinkle, who addressed her four-year-old daughter, Nitara as 'Katappa' all day after watching Baahubali 2. That's what the Baahubali effect looks like. Twinkle Khanna, 43, tweeted: "Saw Baahubali and I've been calling my daughter Katappa much to her dad's annoyance. Perhaps he would prefer her being called Rowdy instead." 'Rowdy' obviously because Akshay Kumar starred in a film named Rowdy Rathore. PS: Akshay Kumar wasn't pleased.
Here's what Twinkle tweeted:
The 'obsession' with Katappa didn't stop there for Twinkle, who now thinks that the name can be a tongue twister of sorts. Here's what she instagrammed:

Katappa is one of the pivotal characters of S S Rajamouli's magnum opus and is played onscreen by actor Sathyaraj. Katappa is a part of Mahishmathi's army and the one who killed Amarendra Baahubali, the beloved prince of Mahishmathi after he was coerced by Bhallala Deva. He later helped his son Mahendra Baahubali take revenge and re-claim the throne of Mahishmathi.
S S Rajamouli's two-part epic saga is the first Indian film to have crossed the Rs 1,000 mark globally. The film's Hindi version has set a few records of its own too. Baahubali 2 (Hindi) defeated Aamir Khan's Dangal and became the first film in Hindi to make more than Rs 400 crore.
Baahubali: The Conclusion stars Prabhas as Mahendra and Amarendra Baahubali, Rana Daggubati as Bhallala Deva, Anushka Shetty as Devsena and Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami.
Baahubali: 2 released on April 28.
