Saaho is one of the most anticipated movies in Bollywood which will star Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles. However, before Shraddha Kapoor was finalized, the makers had decided to rope Anushka Shetty for the lead roles. Owing to some weight loss issues, makers decided to turn down Anushka Shetty from the list. Now a new report suggested that after Anushka Shetty, makers had approached Alia Bhatt for the movie.
Saaho team was extremely happy to rope Alia Bhatt for the lead role and also her mentor, Karan Johar was convinced with the same. However, considering the screen share of Prabhas was more in the movie as compared to Alia, she rejected the offer of Saaho. A month ago, during an interview, Alia Bhatt said that her favorite actor is Prabhas but being an actress she was not convinced with the idea of sharing the major screen with a male star.
According to the source,
“Alia is currently busy setting a league of her own by taking up some really good performance-oriented roles. So at a stage when she’s setting such a bright example as far as her film choices are concerned, she doesn’t want to break the chain by doing a film where she is more like a supporting cast. Even her family approved of her decision and have no regrets whatsoever. So does it mean, Shraddha got lucky all thanks to Alia? I mean, had Alia not rejected the film, the makers wouldn’t have even approached Shraddha, right? Nevertheless, it’s quite a win-win situation for Shraddha, though!”
Well on another hand, Shradhha Kapoor has been finalized for the movie. According to the reports, it is said that she is paid a whopping amount of Rs.9 crore for the movie. The shooting of the film will begin from this month, and a huge set is already in place at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad.
