It was earlier reported that Anushka Shetty was being replaced by Bollywood young actress Shraddha Kapoor as the leading lady in Prabhas’. Reports were doing rounds that Shraddha was approached for the role in the Saaho and the actress has given her nod, but the makers of the film hadn’t confirmed it yet. But according to the latest buzz, Shraddha Kapoor has agreed to be a part of the film in principle but is yet to sign the dotted line for Saaho.
A report in DC stated that the Aashiqui-2 actress has given her nod for the film and soon things will progress. “The filmmakers approached her and she agreed to come on board. But she is yet to sign on the dotted line. Other modalities are still being worked out too,” a source was quoted in the report. The report also says that talks with Shraddha Kapoor are in the advanced stages and she has agreed in principle to be a part of the film.
Few days ago, a report in a leading tabloid said that Anushka might not be part of Saaho because of the weight issues. “Anushka was training hard for the role in Saaho. However, her weight has become a bone of contention. She is still about five to eight kilos over weight. And this might cost her the film itself,” the report read.
Saaho is being directed by Sujeeth who earlier directed Run Raja Run with Sharwanand in the lead role and the film is being produced by UV Creations. Saaho will have Bollywood actor Neil Nithin Mukesh playing the antagonist.
