Now A Book on Baahubali’s life & journey

Even as we await the sequel to 2015’s mega blockbuster Baahubali, Mumbai-based author Anand Neelakantan of Asura fame, has brought more cheer for fans of the historical drama. The writer said that he’s working on a trilogy, also titled Baahubali, which will throw light on the back-story of the epic saga. Fans of the warrior Baahubali who are keen to know about the braveheart's journey since childhood will soon get a peek into Baahubali's life and journey as a child.

Inspired by the success of 'Baahubali: The Beginning', S S Rajamouli, the director of the movie, has approached writer Anand Neelakantan to write a prequel to the movie. To be written in three parts, the first part of the prequel will be launched before the release of the second edition of 'Baahubali: The Conclusion' in April 2017.

" It’s a prequel,” he explains, adding, “The series takes off from where the last book ends.” Neelakantan says that the trilogy was actually the brain-child of director SS Rajamouli, and will deal with Katappa and Sivagami’s childhood. Nothing in the film will be repeated in the book. People will find it boring then," said Anand.

The author of the bestseller novel 'Asura: Tale of the Vanquished', said that the book series would feature the history of the kingdom Mahishmati, childhood of Baahubali and history of other characters in the film.It will be written in five languages: English, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi. "But it is first going to be released in English," said Anand.

The date of the book launch will be announced at the Jaipur Literature Fest to be held in January.
