According to the latest reports, actress Anushka Shetty has opted out of Telugu star Prabhas’ eagerly-awaited ‘Sahoo’ because of prior commitments and date issues. The lovely lady had, apparently, signed a highly ambitious Tamil film even before Sahoo came her way and will now be dedicating time to the film.
Interestingly, reports of the ‘Baahubali 2’ duo reuniting on the big screen had created quite a buzz amongst fans and sent them into a state of frenzy. As such, this recent development is bound to break hearts.
As it so happens, following Anushka’s exit the makers may rope in the lovely Pooja Hegde to play the lead opposite Prabhas in ‘Sahoo’. However, nothing has been finalised yet. We’ll just have to wait and watch how things play out.
In case you did not know, ‘Sahoo’ is touted to an action-thriller and features Prabhas in a brand new avatar. A Sujeeth directorial, it has created a buzz amongst fans thanks to its intense teaser and is likely to hit screens in 2018. Bollywood star Neil Nitin Mukesh too is a part of ‘Sahoo’. He’ll be playing a negative role here. Sometime ago, he had told a leading daily that ‘Sahoo’ will be one of the most talked about and celebrated films of 2018.
“This is a larger-than-life film and, post Baahubali, the entire nation is rooting for Prabhas. And where there is a mega hero, there will always be a mega villain too. My character has many shades like every other character in the film,” he had added.
So, will Anushka’s exit hurt the prospects of ‘Sahoo’? Tell us in the space below.
