Anushka Shetty dropped from 'Saahoo' as she couldn't lose weight


According to reports from Bollywood life, the Baahubali actress Anushka Shetty who played the role of Devasena has missed an opportunity to play an important role in Prabhas starrer 'Saahoo'. After the monstrous success of 'Baahubali' many expected the lead actors in the movie would be flooded with offers. True to that, Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannah and Ramya Krishnan are quite busy with a handful of upcoming movies. However, Anushka Shetty has unfortunately lost the role in Saahoo and the reason is that she was too overweight to play the role.

The movie is a high budget action thriller starring Prabhas in the lead. The film is widely expected all over the country as it is the first movie of Prabhas that is getting released in multiple languages. Both Prabhas and Anushka Shetty were asked to get in shape for the movie. The role they play require them to wear cool costumes and also the movie requires the lead actors to be very stylish. Anushka started with her fitness routine to lose weight for the movie. It must be noted that Saahoo is the first direct Hindi movie for both the lead actors as the movie is filmed separately for all the versions.

However, the latest we hear is that the makers of the film has decided to drop Anushka Shetty from the project as she still not in shape for the film. As per reports, Anushka Shetty was still 6 to 8 kg overweight for the role in the movie. Despite a rigorous fitness routine, the actress couldn't achieve the desired weight and has lost out the opportunity in the film. It must be noted that the makers of Saahoo earlier approached Katrina Kaif for the role, but she turned down. It would be interesting to see who might replace Anushka Shetty in Saahoo.
