Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion is currently the talk of the town. The whole Country is awestruck with the kind of response garnered by the film. Baahubali is breaking records and is creating history. On the other hand, we all know that yesteryear diva Sridevi initially rejected the offer of playing Sivagami’s role in the franchise. Later, this role landed on the doorstep of Ramya Krishnan and she instantly signed up for the film. Eventually, Sivagami’s role turned out to be one of the most powerful ones in the film.
Latest buzz is about why Sridevi turned down this golden opportunity. When S.S. Rajamouli narrated the script to Sridevi, many of her friends and family members asked her to take it up without a second thought. However, it is said Sridevi declined this offer citing the fact that she needs to play the role of a middle aged guy’s mother in the movie. On the other hand, some sources have mentioned Sridevi turned down the offer since the makers of Baahubali were not ready to pay the hefty remuneration she quoted. We do not know if these reasons are even true. All we can say is, Sridevi did miss an amazing opportunity!
