Mrunal In Netflix’s Baahubali
Talking about signing up for the role of Sivagami, Mrunal told NDTV, "The process wasn't easy as well. It was a little difficult but somewhere down the line in my head, I knew I was going to be Sivagami because she is a strong character who rules the entire Mahishmati."
It’s A Dream Come True Experience
While speaking at a session during Netflix's ongoing event ‘See What's Next: Asia in Singapore', Mrunal said playing Sivagami in the Netflix series is like a dream-come-true experience for her. She was quoted by IANS as saying, "She's got the sense of motherhood but at the same time she has got the sense of what is right and what is wrong. She treats everybody equal no matter who it is. Through this project I'm living my dream."
Mrunal Is Excited About The Project
She added, "It's a big treat to work with this team. When I got to know that it was a Netflix project, I was even more excited. I was really very fascinated with the dialogue 'Mera vachan, mera shasan' (My word is my governance). That really attracted me," she said. "For me, he (Rajamouli) is like the director to work with and start my career and to work with him was a delight."
