Reports were rife that Sridevi has demanded a massive 6 Cr to play Sivagami in Baahubali, which was finally adorned by Ramya Krishna. It is known that the role has got great respect in the film and Ramya Krishna was showered with praises for carrying it with ease.
Critics also opined that nobody else would have been that apt for the role except Ramya. Apparently, Sridevi opted Vijay's Puli over Baahubali and her look in the film has been getting mixed response.
When Sridevi was quizzed why she had to put down Baahubali offer, during the promotions of Puli, she chose to skip the question. She has instead replied talking about her role in Puli.
"I'm looking forward for new kind of scripts. In Puli I've found that fantasy element quite exciting. My role as a queen is also stunning and I felt like why should I lose this chance. Will have to see how audiences will like my queen role", Sridevi replied.
This has clearly indicated that the diva do not like to talk about why she had to turn down such a powerful role.
Coincidentally, Sridevi did not talk anything about Baahubali though entire filmdom is raving about its success and grandeur. Looks like things were greatly messed up between the team Baahubali and Sridevi.
