Coming to the actresses, Ramya Krishna as the Rajmata - Sivagami and Bijjala Deva's wife steals the limelight all the way in her remarkable act. Anushka Shetty as Devasena, Bahubali's mother brings on a tough act yet has little screen time in the movie while Tamannah who plays Shiva's love interest and a rebel warrior, Avanthika adds the mystic value.
