Actor Rahul Bose, who was last seen in VISHWAROOPAM II, has said that he will start shooting for "Baahubali: Before the Beginning" in December.

Sporting a bearded look when Rahul was proded about it, he said: "I am doing a prequel to BAAHUBALI for Netflix. It is called as Baahubali: Before the Beginning."
"I have a big role in it. We will start shooting December beginning. My character has a bearded look, and I don't want to sport a fake beard for the next six months. I will have the same look."
"Baahubali: Before the Beginning" is a web series based on Anand Neelakantan's 2017 novel "The Rise of Sivagami", and is a Netflix Original from India.
