Director Rajamouli has been commenting on Sri Devi denying his Baahubali movie and in one interview with a famous media head, Rajamouli said that she demanded highly unrealistic demands to accept the offer and producers thought they cannot afford her for the movie.
He also said they were lucky that she did not accept the offer and they got a chance to cast Ramyakrishna, which worked for them in a big way. Even the Media Head tried to insinuate that Sri Devi would not have acted well in the movie as well. Many thought after the interview aired, that Sri Devi will come out and give retort to the allegations. But she remained silent and now, she came to Hyderabad for promotions of her next release, MOM.
In a interview she said, " I did not believe that someone will make such comments on me, that too a person like SS Rajamouli. But when a well-wisher sent me the video link, I had to believe.
"I can't understand how someone can comment on a person like that. He said I demanded Rs. 8 crores and flight tickets and also asked them to book star hotels for me and staff. If I had demanded so much, would producers have cast me in their films? My husband Boney Kapoor is also producer and I know what a producer goes through for making a movie. There is no need for such hatred from a man of his stature and I acted in his guru, K.Raghavendra Rao movies repeatedly and also acted with Krishna garu in more than 40 films. Had I been unreasonable like they claim, no one would have cast me repeatedly in their films and I would have done 300 films in my career," retorted Sri Devi about the comments.
