Filmmaker SS Rajamouli first offered the iconic role of Sivagami in the Blockbuster film ‘Baahubali’ to actress Sridevi Boney Kapoor before Ramya Krishnan stepped in to play the character. With ‘Baahubali’ turning out to be a huge success, many wondered as to why Sridevi rejected such an iconic role and instead gave a nod to play the lead in ‘Puli’, that turned out to be a big dud at the Box Office.  With the release of ‘Baahubali 2’, the tremendous success of the film again raised eyebrows as to why would have Sridevi let go off such a big film. The media also many a times questioned the actress about the same, but never did she address it and instead kept avoiding it. However, after a stoic silence for over a considerable time duration, Sridevi finally answered the question. During the trailer launch of her upcoming film ‘Mom’. When asked Sridevi as to why she turned down the film, the actress said, “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?”  Well, Sridevi makes a lot of sense when she says that the incident should be left behind since it is a thing of the past! The Times  of   India : 9th.
