Popular bollywood veteran actress Sridevi is soon coming back on screen with her upcoming film ‘Mom’ which also stars ace actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Sridevi was recently in news after SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion became a blockbuster hit at the worldwide box office. For those who are not aware, Sridevi was the first actor who was offered the iconic Sivagami role in the film.
Sridevi rejected the role of Sivagami and chose another queen’s role in a Tamil period drama, Puli, that turned out to be a box office disaster. After she declined to sign on the dotted lines, the role went to Ramya Krishnan and the rest is history.
Sridevi has avoided addressing this question for a long time. However, recently, during the promotion of her upcoming film MOM, she broke her silence on the question.
When she was probed as to why she turned down the film, she said, “Another actor played that role and both versions of the films were released and became a hit. Now, what’s the point in talking about it?”
