After the success of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning, the fame of Prabhas has become a superstar. Before this film, he wasn’t not known by everyone. But, his stellar performance has changed the scenario.  All the directors and producers are interested to spend on him including ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who offered a part to him in his film.

In Padmavaat, Prabhas was offered the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh but he turned down the offer. Padmaavat is the movie which was entangled in debate  across the country. But, still, the film earned Rs 300 crore mark at the Box Office.

Filmmaker Bhansali, before finalizing other characters first decided to cast Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in the role of Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khiljiand. Baahubali actor was busy shooting Baahubali 2 at that time. Bhansali had offered him to play the role of Maharaja Ratan Singh but he rejected. Well, you must be wondering why he rejected this role? So, Prabhas thought the role wasn’t meaty enough. He wanted a role which pars with the role of Deepika Padukone. Well, after he rejected, Shahid Kapoor played the role of Ratan Singh and he got appreciated as well.

Do you know he is not the only actor who rejected to play the part of Maharawal Ratan Singh as Sanjay Leela Bhansali had also offered this role to Shah Rukh Khan but he too rejected. Shahrukh thinks that the film is all about Padmavati and Alauddin Khilj and to play a part of such a character who is not the center part not good for him.
