Probably Sridevi didn't realise that Baahubali was going to be this big when she was offered the role of Sivagami in the film. She is said to have turned down the role as the makers didn't agree to the remuneration that she was demanding. Ramya Krishnan soon got on board.

However, the media seems to be still intrigued about the fact that Sridevi could turn down such a pivotal role, and she's asked about it at every given opportunity. 

When asked about it at a recent media interaction, the actress said, "To be honest I haven't watched the film. My saying no to the role has become a big issue. I had my own reasons. Part 1 and Part 2 of the film are already released, why are people asking me now? There are many films that I didn't do, why am I being asked only about this?"

Sridevi is currently busy with the promotions of her upcoming film Mom that also stars Nawazuddin Siddique and Akshaye Khanna.
