Has Anushka Shetty Been Dropped Out Of Prabhas’ Saaho Due To Weight Gain?

Is that even the reason?

Everyone was excited when a news of Anushka and Prabhas getting back together for a movie cropped up immediately post ‘Bahubali’. However, neither did the ‘Saaho’team nor did Anushka confirmed about the movie’s cast other than Prabhas. While most of the fans and audience have been eagerly awaiting the female lead’s confirmation, an entertainment daily quoted a source that said, “Anushka was training hard for the role in Saaho. But her weight has become a bone of contention. She is still about five to eight kilo overweight. And this might cost her the film itself.”

While we know that Anushka has decided to take a ‘Yoga break’ to get back into shape, the ‘Saaho’ team released a press statement clearing the air. In the statement, they said, “We’ll announce the final casting when it happens, but right now, dates are being worked out, because there’s a lot of shooting planned. It’s again a very big film, just like Baahubali, being shot in three languages, and it’s going to [need] filming of another six-seven month continuously with a lot of training.”

Another source close to the ‘Saaho’ director Sujeeth Reddy said, “The shooting is not happening at this moment; it’ll only start from this month end. These reports about Anushka are false because she’s not yet confirmed. The makers are yet to take a call. They’ll take a decision soon. [Also], everyone is speculating that Anushka is finalized for Saaho because the same banner is producing a film called Bhagmati, which stars Anushka in the lead.”

Another source said, “It’s not like she’s overweight or anything. She’s looking good and she’s acting in one more film [Bhagmati]. She gained weight for Size Zero, but that was two years ago, and after that, she did Baahubali and she looked very much in shape.”

As for the silence from Saaho makers on this, the source adds, “Sujeeth is not talking because, before this, without him saying anything, news spread about some other casting for the film. He has decided that only after everything is decided, will he talk when the shooting [for Saaho] starts.”

Besides Anushka, female actors considered for Saaho include Katrina Kaif, Shraddha Kapoor, Disha Patani, Sonam Kapoor and Pooja Hegde.
