Although, in Baahubali 2, Ramya Krishna has very well portrayed the fictional character of Sivagami. "If Sridevi B Kapoor did Bahubali 2 she would have gotten more credit than Prabhas it being her very next film after English Vinglish." posted Ram Gopal Varma on Twitter talking about the role Sivagami.
With a career spanning over three decades, Ramya Krishnan has acted in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Kannada and Malayalam films. Be it with Vinod Khanna in Yash Chopra's Parampara, Sanjay Dutt in Khalnayak, Nana Patekar in Wajood, Govinda in Banarsi Babu or her most famous role till date in Bollywood, opposite Amitabh Bachchan in Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Ramya has a good body of work in Bollywood. Directed by Mahesh Bhatt, it starred Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role alongside Pooja Bhatt, Ramya Krishnan, Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher. She bagged a Filmfare Award under the Best Actress category for her performance. She has reportedly been paid Rs 2.5 crore for it. Thanks to the popularity of her role, a book by the name "The Rise of Sivagami" was also released. Baahubali 2 has become the first Indian film to cross 1000 crore at the box office.
But do you know the real reason why Sridevi opted out?
Buhari leaves for London amid health fears
The statement says "there is no cause for worry" and says the length of Buhari's stay in London will be determined by his doctors. However, 21 of them were earlier released in October 2016 after negotiation between the Federal Government and the insurgents.
She even announced that she was interested in playing the role of late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.
But in any case, it was Sridevi's loss, given that the film did such stupendous business at the box office.
