Popular Actors Who Refused To Star in Baahubali
Baahubali is one of the biggest and highest grossing films of all time, which has not only broke many records at the box office but it is also the first Indian movie to enter the Rs.1000 Crore club. The film has given us many talented actors like Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, and Rana Daggubati. They have set a new benchmark for everyone in the industry.
But, interestingly there are many actors who reportedly said no this blockbuster movie. So, here we have brought you a list of such actor who refused to star in Baahubali franchise films and might have regretted their decision later.
As per some media reports, Sridevi was approached for the role of Sivagami Devi but due to her high demands, this role finally went to Ramya Krishnan. Now, we just can’t imagine anyone except Ramya in this role after her brilliant performance in the movie.
She was approached for the female lead, Devasena in the film but she refused the role due to some unknown reasons and at last the role went to an another popular South Indian actress, Anushka Shetty. She not only just stole the show with her mesmerising performance but also justified the choice of director.
It is said that Prabhas was the first and last choice for the main lead actor in Baabhubali while some as per some reports director S. S. Rajamouli’s initial plan was to make Baahubali in Hindi with actors like Hrithik Roshan and then dub it in different languages. Therefore, he offered this role to Hrithik but he showed no interest in the movie and finally, he went for Prabhas as the main leading actor.
On the other hand, he is said to be the first choice of SS Rajamouli, for the role of Bhallaladeva. Therefore, he sends him the script but got no response from the actor and as a result, he decided to go with Rana instead.
Reportedly, she was approached to play the role of Avantika in this film, but she walked out of it since the makers wanted her to give all her dates to the film for a lock-in period of 2 years, which was quite difficult for her. Therefore, they signed Tamannaah Bhatia for this role who was ready to devote all her time.
He is one of the most popular South Indian actors and he rejected the role of Kattapa in the film, which was later played by the actor Sathyaraj. As we all know, this role turned out to be one of the most important roles in the film so do you think he would have regretted it later?
In a couple of films, we saw him playing a very satisfying negative role. And, it is said that he was also offered the role of Bhallaladeva, but due to the issue of his dates, he had no option but to reject it.
