Shraddha Kapoor scales down her weight
So it’s pakka now! It’s Shraddha Kapoor, who will be standing neck-to-neck with Prabhas in his Telugu-Tamil-Hindi tri-lingual film, Saaho. Shraddha will have to quickly lose all the kilos she had gained to play the ample-proportioned gangster in Apoorva Lakhia’s Haseena Parkar. In fact, the original choice for the film, Anushka Shetty, couldn’t eventually do the film, as she couldn’t manage to shed kilos in time for the shoot.
“But that should not be any problem for Shraddha,” says a source from the Saaho team. “She is capable of getting back into her original shape, plus some more. She needs to sport a toned physique to play Prabhas’s fighting-fit comrade on screen.”
Interestingly Shraddha had said no to Saaho when she quoted a staggering fee to join in. But now after a string of flops behind her, Shraddha will cut down her price to accommodate the film’s budget. “Shraddha always liked the script. But previously, she quoted a price that the producers couldn’t afford. After Anushka had to exit, Shraddha quoted a more reasonable price,” says the source.
