Rana Daggubati left such a lasting imprint as Bhallaladeva in the two Baahubali movies, that no matter whatever happens next in his career, he'll always be associated with the character and those films. So, we, too couldn't help ourselves but touch upon Baahubali while exclusively interviewing Rana for his upcoming movie, Haathi Mere Saathi (Kaadan in Tamil and Aranya in Telugu), especially with plans for a prequel in the works and word also going around for another sequel. “As far as Baahubali is concerned, there's an adaptation of a book that's also a prequel to a film. It's actually Anand Neelakantan's book, which is The Rise of Sivagami (name of the book). It's the story of our mother (played by Ramya Krishnan) when she was young — we're not born, it's our mother's story, so we'll come in the big films only,” said the actor. When asked if Baahubali and Bhallaladeva's backstories would appear in subsequence seasons, Rana Daggubati simply added, “Let's see how it goes.” Opening up on Baahubali 3, Rana stated, “Well...boss (SS Rajamouli) has to make that call, but we definitely hope for one.” Watch the video above...
