Right from the time director SS Rajamouli spilled the beans about Sri Devi declining the role done by Ramya Krishnan in Baahubali, fans believed that the two talented film personalities would never get to work together again.
However, that has been proved wrong, with news coming in that they have put aside their differences and have agreed to work together.
Earlier, the director pointed out that the actress made undue demands to star in Baahubali, saying, â€śSridevi asked for Rs 8 crore. Apart from that, she wanted five business class tickets whenever she had to fly to Hyderabad and back. And five business suites were to be booked at the biggest hotel in Hyderabad for her entourage during their stay. She even wanted a share in the Hindi version of the film.â€ť
Wanting to put the episode in the backburner and move ahead, Sridevi was quoted by the Deccan Chronicle as saying, â€śI donâ€™t hold any grudges and I donâ€™t even believe he (Rajamouli) can talk like that. What is in the past, is in the past. The roles I donâ€™t play are irrelevant to me. It is important for me to find new challenges as an actor. Mom has been a deeply satisfying experience. I look forward to more characters that I havenâ€™t played before.â€ť
It is said that director SS Rajamouli is working on a completely new subject that would be far different from the period flick, Baahubali.
He has a very challenging role for Sridevi, we hear. If things work out as per plans, an official announcement about the film will be made soon.
Fresh out of the success of Mom, which happens to be her 300th film, Sridevi is also looking out for good roles.
