After rejecting Baahubali, will Sridevi work with SS Rajamouli in a film with Mohanlal?

Sridevi and SS Rajamouli had an ugly fallout after the latter spoke about the actress rejecting Baahubali but it looks like they are ready to work together

Looks like the wait for the upcoming film of SS Rajamouli is over now. If the latest reports are to be believed, then the director, who just delivered India’s all-time blockbuster with Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has finally made up his mind to start working on his next film. Unlike Baahubali series, his next film is not based on any fantasy war drama but deals with socially relevant issues. And to make the project even bigger, reports suggest that SS Rajamouli has decided to cast none other than his favorite actor, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal for the main lead in the film along with the evergreen Bollywood diva, Sridevi.

Interestingly, SS Rajamouli had expressed his desire to work with Mohanlal in many interviews, during the promotional events of Baahubali 2. He also tweeted that he didn’t miss to watch the first day first shows of Lalettan’s 2016 Telugu releases, Manamantha and Janatha Garage. Both the Lalettan films turned successful at the Tollywood Box Office with Janatha Garage emerging the highest Telugu grosser of 2017.

Meanwhile, Sridevi’s name came as a surprise as the veteran actress recently had a fall out with the Baahubali director over the role Sivagami portrayed By Ramya Krishnan. Sridevi was earlier approached to essay the role of Sivagami in Baahubali series. However, she was replaced by Ramya Krishnan after she demanded a huge remuneration for the role, suggested media reports. The English Vinglish actress replied that Rajamouli’s behavior of talking about her dropping out of the film after the movie’s release was unprofessional.
