DYK SS Rajamouli Approached Sridevi To Play Sivagami In Baahubali?

Some characters are made by actors who play them. They do not just embody a character, they breathe life into it. One such iconic character is that of the fierce Sivagami in SS Rajamouli's Baahubali. It is so legendary that fans shudder to even think what would happen if veteran actress Ramya Krishna did not play the role the way she did. However, it is a fact that she was not the director's first choice to play Sivagami!

Sridevi was the first choice of SS Rajamouli as Sivagami

Late actress Sridevi was the first choice for the role of Sivagami in director SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali. If reports are anything to go, director Rajamouli had approached Sridevi through director Raghavendra Rao, but she reportedly demanded Rs 6 crore for the role. It later went to Ramya and the rest is history.
While there is no doubt that Sridevi was one of the most talented actresses to grace the silver screen, Ramya Krishna made the brave, strong, and compassionate queen of Mahishmati believable with her amazing acting. However, the entire discourse about Sridevi rejecting the role did cause a huge discussion on the internet as well as in the media. SS Rajamouli even went on to say that he was glad Sridevi had rejected the role.
However, that hurt the late actor's sentiments as well as her husband Boney Kapoor. She had later said that being a producer's wife, she would never ask for too much fee, nor demand outrageous things. She maintained that she respected SS Rajamouli, but she was hurt. Later, even Rajamouli said that while he was very happy that Ramya Krishna played Sivagami, he should not have discussed the details of Sridevi's fees and everything else in public.
