Prabhas has now become the undisputed celebutante in India after the mammoth success of Baahubali 2. The actor is now a heartthrob of many young girls and rumours about his wedding to an eminent industrialist’s granddaughter has broken many hearts. However, family of Prabhas has denied any such alliances for Prabhas and say that they are still looking at the proposals that are coming in.
Baahubali aka Prabhas will now appear in an action-thriller titled Sahoo, which will be directed by Sujeeth and produced by UV Creations. The teaser of Sahoo was released along with Baahubali 2 in all the theatres, and it recently crossed 25 million views on digital platforms. Sahoo will have Prabhas play the role of a spy according to reports emerging from sources close to the unit.
Except Prabhas and the antagonist Neil Nitin Mukesh, rest of the cast is yet to be finalised by the makers of Sahoo including the female lead role. There were many reports that the role was offered to top actresses across all the film industries in India but none have given their nod for it.
Rumours were rife that the lead role in Sahoo was offered to Bollywood diva Katrina Kaif and the actress is going through the script before she could agree to the role. That, however, did not materialise despite rumours that the actress has signed the dotted line.
Reports were also doing rounds that Alia Bhatt was approached as well for this role in Sahoo after the actress responded to fan’s question on Twitter about who she would want to act with from the current South Indian actors. This was not confirmed by the production house though. But the pretty actress’ admirers would have loved to see her with Baahubali though.
Mohenjo Daro actress Pooja Hegde too was approached for this role in Sahoo but it was officially not confirmed by the makers. These were rumours and not confirmed by the official spokesperson of the actress though. The actress is currently working on her next with Allu Arjun titled Duvvada Jagannadham.
Anushka Shetty, who appeared with Prabhas in Baahubali, was approached as well by the makers of Sahoo according to few reports. However, none of these reports were confirmed. The actress, however, seems to be the leading contender for this role since Prabhas and Anushka’s onscreen chemistry worked wonders in Baahubali.
Since, none of these actresses have been finalised as the female lead in Sahoo, an official confirmation is yet to come out from the production house.
