Did Sridevi refuse ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’ because of husband Boney Kapoor?

Now that ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’ has emerged as India’s greatest blockbuster ever, we are getting to know many interesting facts about the same. For those uninitiated, actress Sridevi was first offered the role of Sivagami, which she refused. It later went to Ramya Krishnan, and she did the most amazing job ever!

We always wondered why Sridevi let go of such an wonderful opportunity anyway. She never revealed the reason, but, what the gossip mongers suggest is quite shocking.

Apparently, it was her husband producer Boney Kapoor who insisted that she does not take up the offer. Earlier reports suggested Sridevi had quoted a huge amount which the makers were unable to pay her. It was even cited that she could not accept the role as she had already given her dates for ‘Puli’. Now we wonder, was it because of her husband’s interference?

Instead, she went on to do the Tamil film ‘Puli’ which didn’t turn out to be very successful. We’re quite sure Sridevi would’ve essayed Sivagami’s character wonderfully as well.

Regretting, is she?
