Here’s another SHOCKING reason why Anushka Shetty opted out of Prabhas’ Saaho.
We, at BollywoodLife, were the first ones to EXCLUSIVELY tell you that Anushka Shetty has been OUSTED from Prabhas’ Saaho. The reason being cited was her weight. A source close to the movie had revealed saying, “Anushka was training hard for her role in Saaho. However, her weight has become a bone of contention.” However, that’s not just it. Apart from weight issues, Anushka was also under a lot of pressure. Considering that she and Prabhas are a super hit pair and their on screen pairing in Baahubali 2 is a proof of the it; Anushka had a lot of pressure on her. A source close to the actress EXCLUSIVELY revealed it to BollywoodLife that the actress was under pressure because people would expect a little too much from her and Prabhas in Saaho. While, on one hand she wasn’t keen on undergoing a rigorous weight loss regime, on the other hand, she also didn’t want her fans to be disappointed.
Just so you know, Anushka Shetty has been replaced by Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor in Saaho. Yes! Shraddha will be playing the leading lady opposite Prabhas. Recently, the makers found out that Anushka was 5-8 kilos overweight. So despite training really hard for the film, she was out of the running for the role. And Shraddha had always been in the running as one of the choices to play the leading lady. With Anushka taking a step down, Shraddha has been selected to step into her shoes.
Talking about Saaho, the movie will release in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. From the looks of the teaser that was attached with Baahubali 2 movie, we will see a completely different side to Prabhas. Let’s wait for Shraddha’s first look to come out now.
