Wamiqa Gabbi replaces Mrunal Thakur as Sivagami in the Netflix-Baahubali project

Baahubali came and turned out to be the biggest Indian film of all times. When the movie released, little did one anticipate such a crazy reaction from the audiences but it worked wonderfully well for everyone involved. So much so that a prequel tracing the life of Sivagami, ably played by Ramya Krishnan in the original, was being planned.

Wamiqa Gabbi replaces Mrunal Thakur as Sivagami in the Netflix-Baahubali project

Shooting for the Netflix project had begun as well and Mrunal Thakur was chosen to play the younger Sivagami. But the film got scrapped mid-way. "The makers were not happy with the way the film was shaping up. They shot almost 70% of the film and decided to scrap it completely as they didn't want to compromise on the quality," a source reveals.

Now, they are putting the whole project back together with a new cast. And they have also found a replacement for Mrunal. "Mrunal doesn't have any more dates to shoot the whole thing again. So the team have now got Punjabi actress Wamiqa Gabbi who also played a few smaller parts in Hindi films like Jab We Met, Mausam and Love Aaj Kal. They have already chalked out a plan and the series will be in place by the year end."
