Saaho: Anushka Shetty being dropped out of film just hearsay; actress was never finalised?

It was being reported that Anushka Shetty has been dropped out of Prabhas starrer Saaho due to being overweight.

Shetty and Prabhas' crackling chemistry in Baahubali 2: The Conclusion left the audience wanting for more. The fans were rooting for both of them to come together on screen ever since the film was announced. However, the news of Shetty not being cast in the film anymore surprised many. According to the same report, the makers of the film are yet to take the call about casting the lead actress. Therefore, Shetty has not been completely dropped from the film, the makers are just considering more options.

Earlier, BollywoodLife had reported that Shetty was being dropped because of her weight although she had started preparing for her role. However, as per the Zee News report, Shetty is already a part of Bhagmati, another film which is being produced under the same banner as Saaho. Therefore, the news of her being unfit for Saaho is just hearsay.

Minnale, which released on 2 February 2001, seemed to be one of those progressive, liberal movies that were just a hop, skip and jump away from being an outright feminist treatise in English.
