But looking at the Pan-India appeal of Baahubali franchise, it would have taken her to another level altogether.
Veteran actress Ramya Krishnan, who impressed the nationwide audiences with her powerful performance as Rajamata Sivagami in "Baahubali", has divulged that she may enter politics if it is written in her destiny. Nonetheless, that did not happen, and Ram Gopal Varma also feels it was her one of the biggest mistakes to say no to such a project. While everyone is in awe of the showman - the visionary SS Rajamouli, whose grand vision has turned into a global phenomenon, the contribution of the film's star cast can't be ignored.
"I really wonder why Sridevi B Kapoor did not do Bahubali 2?". Actor Sathyaraj, who continues to win applause for playing Kattappa, the loyal servant of Sivagami (Ramya Krishna) has now appeared in a new commercial for a popular textile brand.
Directed by SS Rajamouli, Baahubali 2 has thrashed box office records in the history of Indian cinema. Ramya has been paid Rs 2.5 crore for her role and Sridevi asked for more than double the amount.
It is said that the charming Ramya Krishna has charged Rs 2.5 crore for the same role and was immediately on board for the role.
RGV started taking on Sridevi by tweeting, "If Sridevi did Bahubali2 she would have gotten more credit than Prabhas, it being her very next film after English Vinglish".
But in any case, it was Sridevi's loss, given that the film did such stupendous business at the box office.
