One would have thought that after the tremendous success of Baahubali, Anushka Shetty wouldn’t be short of film offers. However, this is not the case. Anushka Shetty, who was supposed to star with Prabhas in the upcoming movie Sahoo, has now been dropped from the film. According to a report by Bollywood Life, the actor has been dropped because she couldn’t lose the required weight for her character. The report also suggested that Anushka was working to get in shape but she was still 5 to 8 kg overweight.
Anushka had gained weight when she got injured while filming Baahubali. The DNA and Scoopwhoop also reported that producers of the movie are now facing difficulty finding her replacement for the film. The producers had also approached Katrina Kaif in the past but Katrina rejected the role as she wasn’t aware about the popularity surrounding Prabhas. The movie is directed by Sujeeth and will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malyalam in 2018.
