Produced by Arka Media Works and Graphic India, the thirty-five episode Season 1 of the audio series, features the hidden stories of the young princes, Amarendra Baahubali and Bhallaladeva in the Mahishmati kingdom.

Under the watchful eye of Sivagami, and the warrior, Katappa, they compete to rule the greatest kingdom of their times where one will rise to be King of the throne, and the other becomes King of the people.
The audio series comprises epic stories about different characters from the world of Baahubali, including Prince Baahubali, Bhallaladeva, Kattapa and Sivagami as well as dozens of new characters that will expand the world of Baahubali and reveal hidden secrets for millions of fans.
