Sanjay Dutt was the first choice for “Katappa”
KATHMANDU: When it comes to Bollywood’s superhit film, the name of ‘Baahubali’ series directed by SS Rajamouli comes to the forefront. Every single character of this film was very much liked by the audience. The role of Katappa was played by actor Satya Raj from the South. However, recently it was reported that Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was the first choice for the role of Katappa.
Director Rajamouli had approached Sanjay for the role of Katappa. However, he was serving a prison sentence at the time. So he could not make this film. The role was later offered to Sathyaraj. He has spared no effort to immortalize Katappa’s character. However, the audience has been very fond of Sanjay Dutt in the negative role in the film.
Actress Ramya Krishnan played the role of Sivagami in ‘Bahubali’. This character was also offered to Sridevi earlier. But, after demanding a higher salary than actor Prabhas, director Rajamouli signed Ramya in her place. She had brought the role of Sivagami to life. Sridevi later regretted leaving the film.
