Netflix has seized the Indian media world by storm after its super hit, Sacred Games. Sacred Games, which star Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles has won the hearts of critics and audiences alike for its gritty portrayal of the city. The web series was directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap and the story for Vikram Chandra’s eponymous novel was televised by Varun Grover.
Following Sacred Games, Netflix has announced its next series that would be a prequel to Baahubali. Now, fans of Baahubali can deep dive into the world of Mahishmati and learn more about Sivagami. The series, announced by Netflix today would be titled Baahubali: Before The Beginning. Season 1 of the series will capture Sivagami’s journey from a rebellious and vengeful girl to a wise, poised queen.
The series would be brought forth by the same team behind Baahubali. Netflix has teamed up with SS Rajamouli and Arka Media Works. This is what SS Rajamouli had to say about the series, “I am very excited that this is being adapted as a Netflix Original Series. With Netflix as our partner, we have the opportunity to create a rich and riveting series and take this quintessential Indian epic to the world, which is very gratifying to me as a storyteller.”
Apart from Sacred Games and Baahubali: Before The Beginning, Netflix has also announced a collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan for a spy drama ‘The Bard Of Blood’ starring Emraan Hashmi.
