SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 changed the dynamics of the movie business in India, all credits to its colossal success worldwide. However, a little less known fact is that actress Sridevi was first offered the role of Shivagami Devi. However, Sridevi reportedly pitched a high remuneration which makers couldn’t afford and hence Ramya Krishnan was got on board.This news did come as a shock to everyone. However, neither the actor nor the director ever opened up about this issue.However, Sridevi who recently went on a chat show to promote her upcoming film MOM was asked if she has seen Baahubali 2. Replying to which Sridevi said that she hasn’t seen the movie. She then further added, “But I would like to talk about this. It has become such a big issue and people are imagining things (as to why I have said no the film).
I have my own reasons. First of all two parts of Baahubali have come out, and now they are asking me. There are many films, I refused. Why are they not talking about it? Why only this film? I will go there and talk about it.”On the work front, Sridevi will next be seen in MOM which is slated to release on July 7, 2017. The movie also stars Akshaye Khanna, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and others. The plot of the movie revolves around the troubled relationship between a mother and her step-daughter.Sridevi is playing a role of a mother and yes, this time not the one who can’t speak like English Vinglish. She is all set to save her daughter from the shackles of a conspiracy. Nawaz is unrecognizable in his avatar and Akshaye too portrays his role with perfection.
