In Baahubali movie industry's leading actresses Anushka and Tamannah were given more importance. In the first part Tamannah was given more chances than Anushka. In Baahubali 2 Anushka's role was highlighted.
Anushka's Devasena character had captured hearts of many. Her fans had stated that no one can act more than her in this character. She is in the minds of many through the character.
Many have thought that when Nayanthara had done the character it would be
awesome. It was stated that when Rajamouli was writing the script, he had
thought Nayanthara to play Devasena's character.
Nayanthara was very busy at that time and so the chance was given to Anushka. Same way Ramya Krishnan's role was earlier planned to be given to Sridevi. Because of call sheet issue, Ramya Krishnan had got this opportunity.
