Since the reports that Sridevi refused to be a part of SS Rajamouli's 'Baahubali' came out, a lot has been speculated about the reason so as to why Sridevi chose not to be a part of the project. However, in a recent interview, the actress decided to open up about the incident and revealed that she was hurt and in a state of shock after the way, Rajamouli spoke about the incident.
In a recent interview, Sridevi said, "I was shocked and hurt by his interview. Rajamouli is a calm and dignified person. I was very happy to (have got an opportunity to) work with him. But, the way he spoke about the issue made me feel very sad."
While the reason behind Sridevi's decision to not join the cast has been kept under the wraps, the buzz is that she opted out due to the demands of her remuneration not being met. Rubbishing these rumours, Sridevi added, "People would have sent me packing if I was like that. I don’t know if the producer wrongly told Rajamouli that I made all these demands but it is not in good taste to speak like this."
When asked if Sridevi has seen SS Rajamouli's magnum opus, the 'MOM' actress said, "No. To be honest, I didn’t see the movie." However, not the one to skirt around the topic, she added, "But I would like to talk about this. It has become such a big issue and people are imagining things. I have my own reasons. First of all two parts of Baahubali have come out, and now they are asking me. There are many films, I refused. Why are they not talking about it? Why only this film? I will go there and talk about it.”
