Mohanlal was to play Kattappa in SS Rajamouli's Baahubali?
Baahubali, which crossed 1000 Cr in the Worldwise box office, is currently the topic of discussion and every character well done by every person.
The film has broken all BO records of previous films. The movie has been a talking point for a long time now. Considering Part 1’s success, the hype around Bahubali:The Conclusion has been already huge. And now the buzz has only doubled considering Part 2’s resounding success!
You know what has surprised us, As per the report, the role of Kattappa, which was done by Sathyaraj was first offered to superstar of Malayalam cinema Mohanlal.
Baahubali director, SS Rajamouli had even confessed that he is a big fan of this actor in one of his earlier interviews. He said, Yes, as per reports, he was approached to play the role of the most royal slave of Mahishmati, but as the per same report, the superstar couldn’t allot bulk dates.
At this stage, we can’t imagine anyone else but Sathyaraj as Kattappa – the man who killed Baahuabli. But considering Mohanlal’s versatility, would he have pulled it off as well?
The same report suggests that Nayanthara was initially approached to Devasena which then went to Anushka Shetty. Even Sivagami role was first offered to Sri Devi. Whatever the first choices were, it is safe to say the final cast has been splendid! Nobody else could have played Baahubali, Anushka Shetty made for a perfect Devasena, Sathyaraj as Kattappa was perfection personified.
Rana as Bhallaladeva was the epitome of villainy. Can you imagine anyone else playing any of the roles? Do share your comments in the box below.
