As revealed by senior screenwriter Vijayendra Prasad, Rajamouli rejected the opportunity to work with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.

"I narrated the story of Bajrangi Bhaijaan while Rajamouli was in a bad mood. He was filming a crucial sequence in Baahubali in scorching heat while I narrated the story. He wasn't in the mood to decide on the film. I should have narrated the story in some other time. He himself told me he regrets not directing the Salman Khan starrer," Vijayendra Prasad said.
