Graphic India’s previous series, The Legend of Hanuman, also reached number one on the streaming charts for each of its three seasons, the most recent being in January 2024. This makes Graphic India a prominent animation producer in India, with two shows reaching the #1 ranking on Disney+Hotstar within the last five months.

Ormax Media, an independent media consulting and data analytics group, listed Baahubali: Crown of Blood among the top three Hindi shows or films in India for the past week across all streaming platforms. Ormax estimates the show received 3.3 million viewers in its first few days.

Baahubali: Crown of Blood was created by S.S. Rajamouli and Sharad Devarajan, and produced by Rajamouli, Devarajan, and Shobu Yarlagadda. The story was written by Devarajan and directed by Jeevan J. Kang and Navin John.

This new chapter in the Baahubali universe explores an untold story of adventure, brotherhood, betrayal, conflict, and heroism.

S.S. Rajamouli, creator of the Baahubali universe, said, “The world of Baahubali is vast, and the film franchise was a perfect introduction. However, there’s much more to explore, which is where Baahubali: Crown of Blood comes in. This story reveals unknown twists in the lives of Baahubali and Bhallaladeva and a long-forgotten dark secret. We are thrilled to introduce this new chapter in an animated format, bringing a fresh look to the Baahubali world. Arka Mediaworks and I are excited to collaborate with Sharad Devarajan, Disney+Hotstar, and Graphic India to reshape Indian animation for a broader audience beyond kids.”

Sharad Devarajan, co-creator, writer, and producer of Baahubali: Crown of Blood, added, "S.S. Rajamouli's epic storytelling and the Baahubali films have captivated millions of fans across India, redefining Indian entertainment. Collaborating with him and Arka Mediaworks to share these new stories is a dream come true. Baahubali: Crown of Blood is an animated adventure filled with political intrigue, drama, betrayal, war, heroism, loyalty, and courage. This is my second animation project with Disney+Hotstar after The Legend of Hanuman, and they have been perfect partners for us at Graphic India to launch these new animated shows."
