Responding to the controversy involving him and veteran diva Sridevi over Sivagami’s character in ‘Baahubali’, Rajamouli said that he regret to have talked about her on a public platform.
In an earlier interview, Rajamouli said that Sridevi couldn’t play Sivagami character as she had too many and too exorbitant demands. Reacting strongly to Rajamouli’s comment, Sridevi in another interview said that the ‘Baahubali’ director shouldn’t have spoken about her remuneration and other details on record. Besides saying that she was hurt by his comments, Sridevi denied to have made the demands allegedly divulged by Rajamouli.
In a chat with a leading national media house, the ace director said that he shouldn’t have discussed the details of approaching Sridevi and the following happenings on public platform, and that he regrets his mistake. Rajamouli went on to say that he has huge respect for Sridevi, who has been a flag-bearer of the Southern film industry in Bollywood for many years. He wished her all the best for ‘Mom’ and other upcoming projects.
When asked about Sridevi denying to have asked the high remuneration and other demands that he had divulged earlier, Rajamouli said that as both of their versions are now in front of people, they can decide whose version they want to believe.
