Telugu actor Prabhas' popularity has gone up one step further with his Baahubali-look replacing Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif on the posters featured on the cracker box this Diwali.

The usual trend is that a girl's photo is featured on the Diwali cracker boxes and the cracker makers considered Bollywood actresses like Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif perfect to be featured on the cracker boxes in recent years. But this Diwali, it was the turn of southern actor Prabhas, who was taken aback, when he saw a fire cracker box placed using the image from his movie, Baahubali.

Prabhas has attained a certain pinnacle through with him being referred to as Baahubhali more than his actual name. Baahubali is becoming a doppelganger for him. Baahubali: The Conclusion, a much awaited movie, has been the talk of the town. The actor himself is eager about the sequel. His fans are growing impatient and restless.

This Diwali, his fans went crazy when they fired the Baahubali crackers, which sent the cracker market into tizzy. The Baahubali atom bomb explains the popularity that has developed for the character played by Prabhas in SS Rajamouli-directed epic period movie series.

As Baahubali's character in the film resembles tremendous strength, the cracker makers thought that it would be an ideal fit for developing a cracker named, Baahubali Atom Bomb. The fan base has been ever increasing for Prabhas after Baahubali and more fandom awaits him as we reach closer to the sequel.

Prabhas apart from being taken aback by the fire cracker packaging, also got his funny bone tickled once it was disclosed to him by his team. The actor was caught up in mixed emotions due to the success of his movie and was very amused because a fire crackers with his photo were produced.
