- Baahubali's character was written keeping Prabhas in mind
- We never approached anyone else, said Shobu Yarlagadda
- Baahubali series is directed by S S Rajamouli
The film is a huge success now. Baahubali: The Conclusion became the first Indian film to cross Rs 1,000 crore-mark worldwide. Baahubali 2 (Hindi version) has toppled several records and is inching towards Rs 500 crore-mark.
After Baahubali 2's grand success, rumours of a third film flooded the Internet. Of this Shobu Yarlagadda told PTI: "Really not thinking of Baahubali 3. But the team is doing many things around the cinematic character like animated series, TV series, games and other things." That's true. The promos of Aarambh, a television show which will narrate the story of Devasena (Amarendra Baahubali's wife) have generated a lot of curiosity. The show's story is written by Rajamouli's father, K V Vijayendra Prasad, who also wrote the Baahubali series. Baahubali 2 stars Anushka Shetty as Devasena.
The film also stars Rana Daggubati as antagonist Bhallala Deva, Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami, Sathyaraj as Katappa and Tamannaah Bhatia as Avantika.
