The Baahubali web series!
With a whopping budget of Rs. 10 crores, the makers of the series want to elaborate on the life of Sivagamu and what makes her the perfect Queen Mother who fiercly faught for righteousness until her last breath. According to a report the project is still in its initial stage. There is some confirmation that the series will materialize. The official announcement is amidst expectation anytime soon. With most of the industry shifting its focus towards the digital medium. It’ll be interesting to see how the makers of this magnum opus translate the story into a series.
According to a source popular Telugu director Deva Katta will lead frontier for this project. Meanwhile the Baahubali show will go on floors only early next year.
‘It’ll be a 15-episode series and each episode will encash on a lavish scale. There is no surety if Ramya Krishnan would reprise her own role,’ the source added. While we can’t help but wonder who will be roped in to essay the lead role, we completely understand why Rajamouli said that Baahubali will never come to an end.
