Needless to say how big a success ‘Baahubali’ franchise has become. It’s a mammoth project created by a Telugu Director, Writer, Composer, Hero & Villain. Unfortunately, Telugus have been neglected by Netflix which is making the web series ‘Baahubali: Before The Beginning’ based on ‘Rise Of Sivagami’ penned by Writer Anand Neelakantan.
Lead Cast of the Web Series lasting for two seasons belong to other Industries. While Mrunal Thakur plays the role of Sivagami, Rahul Bose, Atul Kulkarni, Waqar Sheik, Siddharth Arora and Anoop Soni were roped for key roles. What about Tollywood Actors? Was it acceptable to ignore the local talent citing Pan-India Series? Not to forget, Baahubali became a universal film with the contributions of local talent.
The only respite would be the participation of Deva Katta and Praveen Sattaru who are directing this web series. Almost 50 percent of the shoot has been wrapped up so far. Work related to Visual Effects is happening simultaneously in foreign countries.
