The actress has signed up for a meaty role in the Netflix original, which is based on Anand Neelakantan’s book, The Rise of Sivagami.


After making her Bollywood debut opposite Ajay Devgn in Raid, Gayathiri has landed herself another sweet deal, this time for a new NetFlix original, Before the Beginning.

The filmmakers who saw her earlier films are believed to be impressed  with her looks and work, and have signed her on for a significant role in their web series.


“The duo who will helm the Baahubali web series felt that Gayathiri would perfectly match the desired role and did not waste much time in bringing her on board. She will join the sets of the web series from the next schedule,” a source said.

The actress, who remains tight-lipped about her role in the series is likely to be grinning from ear to ear at the way her career is shaping up. Directors Praveen Sattaru and Deva Katta have already begun the shooting for the series, sources said.
