The success of the fictitious mythological film Baahubali:The Beginning has takien the world and fans across the globe by such a storm that enthusists can now hardly wait to for the film's second intsallment which is planned for 2016.
Sometime ago, a report in bollywoodlife.com had revealed that rumours were afloat all over that Madhuri Dixit-Nene would also star in SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion as Anushka Shetty’s (Devasena) elder sister, unfortunatley more information has come to light that reveals that those were just rumours. Quite disappointying actually, considering that Madhuri could have definitely added an impactful performance.
A source in the article mentions, “There are all kinds of rumours and speculations flying around about the Baahubali sequel. We don’t know where the one involving Madhuri came from because there is no truth to it. Websites have even created the role of Anushka Shetty’s sister for Madhuri in Baahubali 2. But so far, there is no new addition to the cast at all.”
In the same article director SS Rajamouli also revealed, “There is no Madhuri Dixit in Baahubali 2.”
Madhiri's presence on the silver screen has been nascent this year, her last releases being Dedh Ishqiya and Gulab Gang. It would really have been exciting to see Madhuri Dixit cast her magical spell on the movie. Karan Johar who is the producer of the film is apparently planning on going full throttle for the sequel as it is going to be bigger than the first one.
