Actor Rana Daggubati has finally opened up on the role of Bhallaladeva's wife in "Baahubali: The Conclusion," the sequel to "Baahubali: The Beginning." He says Bhallaladeva has time to romance only his throne.

It was recently rumoured actress Shriya Saran had replaced Lavanya Tripathi as Ballaladeva's wife in the SS Rajamouli-directed epic. But both actresses were surprised by the reports and said nobody from the Baahubali team had approached them for any role in the sequel.

Ever since they clarified on the issue, the question on everyone's mind is: Will Bhallaladeva have a wife at all in the sequel? Rana Daggubati denies the role of his wife. "No kidding! Bhallaladeva has time only to romance the throne. And moreover, if there is a new addition, it would be announced. What's there to hide?" Rana told The Times of India, when quizzed about his wife in "Baahubali 2."

"Baahubali: The Beginning," set in the kingdom of Mahishmati, ended with the murder of Baahubali and Bhallaladeva taking over the throne. "Baahubali: The Conclusion" will unravel this murder mystery. The film will show how Shivudu takes revenge on Bhallaladeva. The second instalment will feature the meanness of Bhallaladeva.

Rana Daggubati will appear in a more villainous look in "Baahubali 2." "I obviously can't divulge much. But one thing is for sure... You'll see me in an avatar which is meaner and villainous than in Bahubali — The Beginning. You have to watch it to understand what I mean, [sic]" the actor told TOI.

Rana Daggubati is now reportedly busy with the shooting of the Hindi and Telugu bilingual movie "Ghazi," which features him as an executive naval officer of the Indian Submarine S21. The actor is expected to soon join the team of "Baahubali," which is currently being shot in Hyderabad.
