This news is baseless, says Tamannaah Bhatia on her rumoured tiff with SS Rajamouli

Filmmaker SS Rajamouli‘s ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’ is continuing to rule the box office and hearts. Recently, the film has achieved the mark of collecting Rs 1000 crore worldwide which surely speaks about its universal connect and popularity. But, somewhere the fans of actress Tamannaah Bhatia were a bit disappointed by her short appearance in ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’. There were even reports being heard that Tamannaah herself was unhappy with director SS Rajamouli, reason being few of her scenes that were chopped out of the final cut.

However, putting an end to all the rumours, Tamannaah herself has opened up on the same. The actress has said that these reports are baseless and have no truth whatsoever.

The actress said the same in her recent interview with a leading daily. “This is imagination of somebody who is very jobless. I am and will always be thankful to Rajamouli sir for casting me as Avantika. This news is baseless and I am very happy that I worked in this film,” [sic] she said.

“I always knew what my role was. I have great respect for Rajamouli sir and I am proud to be part of such a cult film. This film has changed my life as an actor and has absolutely raised the bar for everyone in the film industry,” added the actress.

Filmmaker SS Rajamouli’s father and veteran scriptwriter K V Vijayendra Prasad too spoke about the length of Avanthika’s character (played by Tamannaah) in the second part saying, “‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ happened in the flash back where she can’t be there so there is no scope for her to be included in second.” [sic]

We hope that this statement from Tamannaah finally shuts down the chapter of these rumours.

‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’ also starred Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty playing the lead roles.
