Say Hi to the adorable Bahati who was used as a model for Simba in the live-action film called The Lion King. Also, the lioness has turned 2 and looks as beautiful as Beyoncé’s Nala.
Moreover, Bahati was just one year old when she was featured as little Simba in the original Disney classic’s remake, The Lion King. The Dallas Zoo also shared some of her moments with Disney while shooting for the film.
Key details of Bahati
Bahati has now turned into a majestic and a full-grown lioness. She has gained huge popularity after playing the role of cub Simba in The Lion King. You can have a look at her cute video down below.

When she was just 1 month old, the Dallas Zoo gave a video to Disney which recorded all her cute moments. The film’s animation team used her videos for behavior and motion reference while creating the character of Simba in The Lion King.
From licking milk droplets off her face to walking on her wobbly legs, the Dallas Zoo captured all of her every moment. The Zoo also added a post on their official Facebook handle for the fans to go and watch the film in theaters.
