SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali has broken all box-office records in Indian history as it crosses Rs 1000 crore. And the actors, Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah, Anushka Shetty, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan are getting global recognition due to the success of the film.
But according to reports, SS Rajamouli had someone else in mind for the role of Queen Sivagami. Although, Ramya Krishnan has been applauded for her performance, she was not the original choice for the role. It was Sridevi who was first approached by the makers.
According to a report in The Times of India, Sridevi couldn’t be cast for the role because the actress demanded a whopping Rs 6 crore from the makers of the film. So they chose Ramya for the role instead.
Sridevi starred in Tamil film, Puli in 2015, with south actor, Vijay. But the film, which released alongside Baahubali: The Beginning, did not perform well at the box-office.
