Baahubali prequel bagged by Netflix; series will be based on Anand Neelakantan's The Rise of Sivagami
Season one of the Baahubali prequel series will comprise nine episodes based on Anand Neelakantan's book The Rise of Sivagami, which tells the story of Mahishmati's queen Sivagami and how the city-state evolved into an empire.
The Andhra Pradesh government aspires to build a capital city that will amaze the world. Those who live in the city, hope that Amaravati will become a model city.
When the trailer of Baahubali was launched, Telugu film fans frothed at their mouths, declaring the second coming of their Jeebus, aka director SS Rajamouli. To me, the film looked like one, giant, video game cut-scene, with unconvincing and obviously fake CGI to boot. Having really enjoyed Rajamouli’s previous film Eega and its audacious visuals, this was disappointing. Baahubali is rumored to be the most expensive movie ever made in India — this is not the film that should look visually gummy.
