As said by SS Rajamouli himself, every character of Bahubali has the strong role and with the help of this new partnership, he can expand the world of Baahubali into a whole new level. “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 story-teller.”
Not only SS Rajamouli but the vice president of Netflix (International) is also excited by this new partnership. He Said, “We are excited to work with some of the world’s most talented writers and producers on one of India’s most beloved stories. The series is a tremendous opportunity for us to give audiences more of the universe that they have come to love, and welcome millions more into the global ‘Baahubali’ fandom,”
The excitement levels of fans are also high but because Netflix did not announce the release date of this mega-series, people have to wait until they did not come up with another announcement.
