Evergreen actress Sridevi has been widely criticised for rejecting Baahubali-2 offer and the cold war between her and Film Director SS Rajamouli is turning ugly.
The Mom actress was offered the role of Sivagami in the epic movie, which was later essayed by Ramya Krishnan.
Rajamouli, in one of his interviews, said that Sridevi demanded a whopping amount and profit share in the movie.
Rajamouli had said,”Sridevi demanded 8 crores. Apart from that, she wants five business class tickets whenever she has to fly to Hyderabad and fly back. And five business suites should be booked at the biggest hotel in Hyderabad for her entourage during their stay. She even wanted a share in Hindi version of the film.”
As Sridevi has been judged for turning down the role, the actress clarified that she has rejected not only Baahubali, but also many other blockbuster movies in the past.
She was upset with the fact that a filmmaker revealed the remuneration of an actor on a public platform.
Recently, Sridevi was asked about it once again and she explained how hurt she is.
“I was shocked and deeply hurt by his interview. Rajamouli is a calm and dignified person. I was very happy to (have got a chance to) work with him. But, the way he spoke about the issue, it made me feel very sad,” Sridevi said.
Meanwhile, Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 has created great records at the box office. On the other hand, Sridevi is busy promoting her upcoming flick, Mom. After English Vinglish, she will be appearing in this thriller drama, which will be released on July 7.
