It wasn’t the ubiquitous dates but a weight issue that saw Anushka Shetty out of Saaho.
Apparently Anushka Shetty and Prabhas, fresh from the success of Baahubali , were extremely keen to try a completely new genre together in young talented director Sujeeth’s second Telugu film Saaho.
There was only one hitch, the film required both Prabhas and Anushka to work towards a much leaner and tauter body shape than Baahubali, as the film has many intricate action scenes and several chase sequences.
While Prabhas successfully worked towards the required physical shape and got there in time for the shooting schedule, Anushka reportedly missed the bus.
“Anushka was very keen to be cast with Prabhas again and to do the action scenes. But she didn’t get the time to work on herself, as she was in and out of several projects. Prabhas on the other hand, completed Baahubali and began working on his Saaho look immediately,” says a source close to the development.
