If you are following Baahubali sidelines very closely, you will be aware of the fact that Director SS Rajamouli had considered Bollywood actress Sridevi for the role of Sivagami in the film. However, Actress Ramya Krishna bagged the role and did justice to it.
According to reports, In an interview, SS Rajamouli said, “Sridevi asked for 8 crores. Apart from that, she wants five business class tickets whenever she has to fly to Hyderabad and fly back. And five business suites should be booked at the biggest hotel in Hyderabad for her entourage during their stay. She even wanted a share in Hindi version of the film.”
And on this, filmmaker SS Rajamouli broke silence saying the things that he now regrets and the words that made Sridevi feel “hurt.”
But now SS Rajamouli regrets what he did and to accepts having committed a mistake.“As for whose version to believe, I guess it is for people to decide. But one thing is for sure. I shouldn’t have discussed the details on a public platform. That’s a mistake. And I regret it,” he told DNA.
He also showered praises upon Sridevi. “I have huge respect for Srideviji as a flag-bearer of the southern film industries in Mumbai for many years. I wish her all the best. And I wish MOM a big success as the trailer looks very intriguing and promising.”
