7 Popular Actors Who Happened To Reject Rajamouli’s Movies Previously

In the process of accepting a few offers, it is common for artists to let go off a few others. Thought that doesn’t undermine them, it is just a fact of missing an opportunity to work with certain set of technicians whom many would be thronging for. Now that SS Rajamouli has rocketed up to the director in demand across the nation with Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion, there are many actors waiting in line to get a call from him. However, there have been a few actors who earlier did get a chance to work with him, but let go of it for reasons known to them best. While one person’s loss will definitely be another actor’s gain, let’s take a look at those actors who let go off that opportunity to work with the director in limelight, SS Rajamouli.

  1. Sridevi – Baahubali (Sivagami)

    Rajamouli initially offered the role of Sivagami from the epic Baahubali series to Sridevi. But, it is said that Sridevi was comfortable to play mother role to an actor in twenties and not an actor such as Prabhas. Also sources reveal that she quoted a bigger amount as remuneration which the makers were not in a position to fulfill. Hence, she had no other option but to back off. The role finally landed in the hands of Ramya Krishna and we couldn’t ask for better Sivagami than her. She completely nailed it!

  2. Suriya

    During the promotions of Singham 3, Suriya himself confessed that he regrets rejecting an offer from Rajamouli. He also mentioned then that if Rajamouli was ready to offer even a small role in ‘Baahubali’ series, without hesitation he would pick it up. He said that next time he gets an opportunity, he will not let it go off.

  3. Vivek Oberoi – Baahubali (Bhallaladeva)

    The story writer of Baahubali, K V Vijayendra Prasad initially wanted to cast Bollywood star Vivek Oberoi in the role of Bhallaladeva. Rajamouli too agreed and they approached him, but Vivek was busy with other commitments during that time and had no other option but to reject it. The role then landed in Rana’s hands. Though he took some time, for being an artist with sense, he agreed to the offer and thus the Bhallaladeva is what we see now in front of us.

  4. Lakshmi Manchu – Baahubali (Sivagami)

    In a talk show on a regional channel, actress Lakshmi Manchu too revealed that she was approached with the offer to play Sivagami. But, the actress said that she was too young to play mother to Prabhas and hence had to let go of the opportunity.

  5. Prabhas – Simhadri

    Much before Rajamouli turned into a super successful director, for his second movie Simhadri, Rajamouli approached Prabhas to cast him as the lead. Ironically, Prabhas confessed that he didn’t like Rajamouli’s first movie Student No.1 and hence rejected Simhadri. Although, he mentioned that he felt bad rejecting that offer and was very much obliged when Rajamouli approached him for Chatrapathi.

  6. Archana - Magadheera (Solomon's Girlfriend)

    Another actress Veda aka Archana, who is known for her role in Nuvvosthanante Nenodhantana also confessed in an interview for rejecting a role offered by Rajamouli. She said she did a mistake by accepting in the first case a role in ‘Nuvvosthanante Nenodhantana’ and then the next big mistake by turning down the offer from Rajamouli in the movie Magadheera. The role finally landed in the hands of Saloni who was later picked as the lead lady in Rajamouli’s Maryadaramanna.
