Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham were the first choice for “Baahubali”.

“Baahubali” magnum opus by SS Rajamouli’s probably took a lot of hardship before it could actually make it to Silver-Screen.

Movie was released in 4000 theatre nation-wide yesterday and ever since been creating epic wave after wave, hailed as super hit within a day of its release, which came as a pleasant surprise as the movie comes from South.

But what is even more surprising and interesting that main leads Prabhas and Rana Daggubati, weren’t Rajamouli’s first choice. Initially he had planned to make the film in Hindi with two Bollywood actors – Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham.

Initial plan was to make Baahubali in Hindi with the two actors and then dub it in different languages. We hear that the director had approached the two stars and requested them to give him some time for narration. He also had sent the scripts to the actors. But neither Hrithik nor John showed any interest in the film and Rajamouli chose to make it with Prabhas and Rana instead.

Now that the movie has certainly become the biggest Indian motion picture ever, we are sure both the Dhoom baddies will miss the opportunity of starring in the magnum opus.

The film which has been made in Tamil and Telugu has been dubbed in three different languages including Hindi.
