After watching Prabhas and Anushka Shetty in ‘Baahubali’ series, the audience was only waiting for a chance to see them together one more time. After which came a news of them doing ‘Saaho’ together. The mass couldn’t get happier about the same. This meant we’d get to see Anushka in a much different avatar than that of Devasena.
But now reports say that Anushka is no more a part of this upcoming film. A leading portal says that she just lost the golden opportunity and the reason is absolutely alarming. Apparently, she was asked to reduce her weight after ‘Baahubali 2’ for her role in ‘Saaho’. But a source close to the film’s unit reveals, “Anushka was training hard for her role in Saaho. However, her weight has become a bone of contention. She is still about five to eight kilo over weight. And this will cost her the film itself.”
Though we haven’t received a confirmation about this from the makers or Anushka herself.
There were rumours that before Anushka, Bollywood actresses like Katrina Kaif and Shraddha Kapoor were also approached for the role, but they turned down the offer.
