Reports suggest that this role was offered to Shraddha Kapoor before Alia Bhatt in SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’. Shraddha Kapoor turned down the offer as she was very busy. It is said that due to lack of dates with the actress, she could not be a part of the film.
Makers felt that Amy Jackson was the perfect choice to play Alia Bhatt. Amy Jackson was pregnant during that time and she refused to do the film.
Daisy Edgar Jones
SS Rajamouli wanted to cast British actress Daisy Edgar Jones in the film ‘RRR’. But the actress refused to do the film and later the role went to Alia Bhatt’s part.
The makers of ‘RRR’ had also approached Parineeti Chopra for the role of Alia Bhatt. However, during that time the actress was busy promoting Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Kesari’. Parineeti asked the makers to wait. But the makers had to announce the film soon and due to this she was removed from the film.
This is how Alia Bhatt got SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’
The makers contacted Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt after not hearing from all these actresses. The actress immediately said yes to the film. Although there were reports in the middle that Alia Bhatt was out of the film but the makers had called all these reports baseless. After watching the film, it would not be wrong to say that no one else could have played this character better than Alia Bhatt.
