Actor Rana Daggubati received praises for playing the role of Bhallaladeva in SS Rajamouli’s directorial venture Baahubali. With his devilish smile and beefed up body, he perfectly got into the skin of the character and it was hard for movie buffs to imagine someone else in his place. But, do you know that talented Rana was not the first choice to play Bhallaladeva in the magnum opus? Yes, it was Hollywood star Jason Momoa, who is popular for playing Khal Drogo in the Game of Thrones series.

The revelation was made by none other than Rana during an interview. He stated that makers were planning to approach Jason Momoa for the role adding that he was very excited when he came to know that he is the replacement of Game of Thrones’s Khal Drogo.

The actor was quoted as saying, “It just sounded so nice that I was supposed to play the role Khal Drogo was to play.”

It seems that just like millions, Rana is also an ardent fan of Game of Thrones. But, what would have been the world of Baahubali without Rana.

Along with Rana, Baahubali also featured Anushka Shetty, Prabhas and Sathyaraj in pivotal roles. The movie did wonders at the box office and also crossed Rs 1500 crore mark worldwide.
