Shraddha Kapoor to play Prabhas’ pair in Saaho
Baahubali star Prabhas is currently shooting for Saaho, an upcoming multilingual directed by Sujeeth. The movie is highly anticipated by the audience as it is Prabhas’ first film in five years apart from the Baahuabli films. Saaho is a big budget project and the makers are roping in actors from various industries to give it a pan Indian appeal.
Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh was roped in to play the antagonist. Promising Tamil actor Arun Vijay was recently signed on to play a very important role in the film. Now according to latest reports, the makers are in talks with Bollywood diva Shraddha Kapoor to play Prabhas’ pair.
It must be remembered that Shraddha was initially approached for the movie but they dropped the idea of casting her as she demanded a huge sum as remuneration. Now it seems like she has decided to take a pay cut.
Ever since the project was announced, several names like Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Pooja Hegde and Anushka Shetty were doing the rounds. Reportedly, Anushka was confirmed to play the female lead before she got dropped owing to weight issues. An official confirmation about Shraddha’s casting is still awaited.
Saaho is produced by Vamsi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapati. To cash in on the huge popularity of Prabhas, the makers are releasing the film in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam languages.
Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is handling the music department and renowned cinematographer R Madhie is cranking the camera. International stuntman Kenny Bates, popular for his work in Hollywood films like Die Hard and Transformers has been roped in to choreograph the stunts in Saaho. The movie is expected to hit screens by the end of next year.
