Sanjay Dutt was the first choice to play Kattappa in 'Baahubali'!

Fans of Baabubali are celebrating the fifth year anniversary of the highest Indian grosser.  

The film's stars, producer, and director SS Rajamouli are recalling their fond memories while making the epic period action entertainer. Now, the film's writer Vijayendra Prasad has revealed that their first choice for Kattappa was Sanjay Dutt but as the actor was in prison, they had to look out for other options and finalized Sathyaraj.

After Baahubali, Sathyaraj became a well-known face across the country and he has also started getting offers from other languages like Telugu, Kannada, and Hindi. However, being selective, Sathyaraj only gives his nod to the films which offer him the right remuneration and solid characters.

Interestingly, now Sanjay Dutt plays the antagonist in the sequel of the Kannada blockbuster film KGF.
