Dropdown values for Paginated Reports in Power BI service are very slow to load

Hello, I created a few paginated reports with dynamic dropdown but the values in the next dropdown takes a very long time to load. The datasource is from SQL Server. This happens when I run the report in Report builder and Service. Can someone explain why is this happening and the solution to this? 


Thank you in advance.
