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

He was interacting with media at the inauguration of an art show called ‘Breaking Barriers’ on Tuesday here.

Sporting a bearded look when Rahul was prodded 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.
