Prabhas, Rana, Tamanna, Anushka's Baahubali The Conclusion is breaking all records at the box office. The film became the highest grosser in Indian film industry collected more than 1000crs and still going strong.
Once again instead of heaping praises on Ramya Krishna's performance as Sivagami, many in Bollywood started talking about why Sridevi rejected the powerful role and Sridevi too talking about the differences between her and the filmmakers.
Baahubali makers according to the source are angry with this non casting hogging the limelight than Ramyakrishna. A source shares “We respect Srideviji a lot. And yes, she was the first choice for Sivagami. This was very early in the project. But when we approached her, her husband Boney Kapoor quoted a staggering fee. Plus he wanted a share of the Baahubali’s profits. We immediately dropped the idea, though we were very keen on casting Srideviji. Later we came to know she did a Tamil film (Puli) where she was given the fee that her husband wanted.”
Source added “We can’t imagine anyone else playing Sivagami. And we feel it is in very bad taste for an actor to talk about a role that he or she did not do. By doing so, the actor who did the role is belittled.”
