There was much hype about the Baahubali film being made into a series for a popular OTT platform. The series titled Baahubali: Before the Beginning was going to be a prequel to the events happening in the movie. However, according to media reports, this series has been put on the back-burner as of now. Actor Mrunal Thakur was allegedly supposed to play the role of a young Sivagami and had even shot for it. However, the actress appears to have opted out of it for various reasons.
A source told Filmfare that Thakur shot about 70 percent of the project two years ago but didn’t receive any further clarity from the production house or any details about its release etc. Hence, the actress has now chosen to move on and uphold her other professional commitments.
