Bollywood actor Sridevi recently broke her silence as to why she rejected the role of Sivagami in the iconic Baahubali film series and said what’s the point talking about it now when the film has already created history.
Sridevi was making headlines for rejecting the iconic role ever since Baahubali director SS Rajamouli revealed that she was the first actor who was offered the iconic Sivagami role in the film.
While the revelation made everyone wonder as to why she rejected such an important role, media speculated it was because the filmmakers were not ready to meet her demands of a high remuneration.
Sridevi till now had avoided the topic but recently addressed the question during the promotion of her upcoming film MOM.
“Another actor played that role and both versions of the films were released and became a hit. Now, what’s the point in talking about it?”
You see Sridevi had rejected Sivagami`s role as she at that time had chosen another queen’s role in a Tamil period drama, Puli, which unfortunately turned out to be a box office disaster.
While we agree it was a decision which Sridevi might now regret, what’s the point of questioning her now when we all know she couldn’t have predicted the outcome of the film at that time when it was just on paper.
