We all know that there have been rumors stating that Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan was the first choice for the role of Baahubali and John Abraham for the role of Bhallaldeva. According to a national daily, it has reported that the filmmakers approached Bollywood hero Hrithik Roshan initially as he rejected the offer because he was busy shooting Mohenjo Daro.

Rana Daggubati was upset with this news and responded on the false report. Rana Daggubati cleared the air about the false reports of the role of Baahubali character. Rana’s quote retweeted them and stated that the reports are false. He said that this is a baseless news and Prabhas is the first choice for Baahubali and there was no alternative to his character. Later I got on board for the role of Bhallaladeva.

Later, he was in a mood to joke and hence, posted one more tweet, thereby making fun of the channel. He said,

According to the reports, Baahubali was initially planned in Telugu. As the budget is crossing the market range of Telugu, the filmmakers thought of releasing in Hindi later. In such a case, why would Rajamouli plan to take Hrithik Roshan? This is indeed a baseless news.

So, now it’s clear that Prabhas and Rana Daggubati were the original choices to play Baahubali and Bhallaladeva respectively in the Baahubali franchise.
