Ever since it is announced that Baahubali prequel will be coming up on the small screen, there is a huge buzz around the casting. But this one will not feature Baahubali and Bhallaladeva roles as the whole series revolves around life and times of Sivagami only.
To be directed by Praveen Sattaru and Deva Katta for Netflix, the prequel of Baahubali is based on the novel “Rise of Sivagami” written by Anand Neelakantan, a source revealed. After a lot of screening tests, finally, it looks like the makers have zeroed on a sexy lady for the leading role.
None other than TV serials fame Mrunal Thakur will be playing the role of Sivagami in this web series. She is famous for her role Bulbul in Kumkum Bhagya serial and recently acted in films like Love Sonia and Super30. We hear that the makers feel that Mrunal has all the guts and talents to match the stature of Ramyakrishna in the younger version.
The first season of this web series is likely to have 9 episodes and it will be released in 90 foreign languages at a time. Being made on a whopping budget, it’s the first fantasy genre series that is being produced by Netflix in India.
