Sensational filmmaker SS Rajamouli created a sensation with Baahubali. It took him five long years to step out with two instalments Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion. Both the instalments ended up as massive hits at the box-office in all the released languages. The movies have been screened across the globe in various film festivals. Arka Media bankrolled the movies and they have been made on a massive budget of Rs 500 crores. Now the makers are in plans to continue the franchise by expanding the world of Baahubali.
The comic books are being published and now the plans for a tv series have been initiated. Arka Media has been getting lot of offers however Rajamouli along with the production house has been holding talks with a multi-national company to produce the tv series. SS Rajamouli will not direct the tv series and the hunt for the right person who can helm the tv series will be finalized soon. He or she will interact with SS Rajamouli who takes the role of the Creative Head and shares all his inputs. Rajamouli will supervise the direction though he will not be present at the shooting spot.
The makers will be getting Rs 25 crores per season as Royalty. This is huge for a television series. However there are several challenges that the makers of Baahubali will face. If the tv series will not live up the expectations, the makers will be slammed that they are cashing the success and banking on Baahubali. Rajamouli and his team is currently holding talks and things will be finalized once the makers get a good clarity and confidence on the script and the proceedings. Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka and Tamannaah played the lead roles in Baahubali.
