New Delhi:

With SS Rajamouli's recent directorial 'Baahubali: The Conclusion' is on a success spree at the box office, each actor of its cast is enjoying the accolades the movie is earning. But not everyone is aware of the fact, the SS Rajamouli wanted to make the movie with an entirely different cast. In fact, while Ramaya Krishnan has won accolades for her role as Shivgami, she wasn't reportedly the first choice for the 'Baahubali' franchise.

Instead, Rajamouli wanted to cast veteran actress Sridevi for the role. According to the media reports, the filmmaker was quite determined to cast Sridevi for the movie, but things couldn't work out. As a result, SS Rajamouli had to rope in Ramaya Krishanan for the role of Shivagami and we must say she has indeed done a phenomenal justice to the character.

Interestingly, talking about other characters, the media reports also suggested that Rajamouli had also approached Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham for the role of Baahubali and Bhallaldeva respectively. However, both the actors didn't accept the offers and the roles eventually went to Prabhas and Rana Daggubati.

Talking about the 'Baahubali', the second installment of the franchise had turned out to be the biggest blockbuster of Indian cinema and has made a whooping collection of Rs 1000 crore worldwide.
