Opening up on her curtailed role in Baahubali the Conclusion in an exclusive interview with BollywoodLife, Tamannaah Bhatia said, “I was never there in Baahubali 2. I was never supposed to be there. My character was only there in part 1. In fact, the three scenes they put out for me in Baahubali 2 was because of how the first film fared, and they were like we cannot not have you now in this film. So, my placement was literally like a cameo in the second part.”

In fact, I don’t know I many people know this, but Baahubali was already shot for 1 and a half years when I came on board. so, I was literally the last one entering the train, the Baahubali (part 1) happened and our worlds changed.”
