Here’s why Kanchana turned down role in ‘Baahubali 2’

Chennai, Dec 3 (IANS) Veteran actress Kanchana, who is making a comeback after three decades with upcoming Telugu drama “Arjun Reddy”, had turned down a role in S.S Rajamouli’s magnum opus “Baahubali 2”.

“She was offered a crucial role in the film. Although she really liked her character, she turned it down as it required her to travel to Jodhpur, and she wasn’t quite happy about the climate especially during the winter,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.

The yesteryear star is known for working in several Telugu classics such as “Aatma Gowaravam”, “Navarathri” and “Private Master”.

Set for a comeback in an urban grandmother’s role in Vijay Deverakonda-starrer “Arjun Reddy”, Kanchana was last seen in 1985 Telugu drama “Shri Datta Darshanam”.

“Baahubali 2”, meanwhile, is gearing up for release on April 28, 2017.
