Shraddha Kapoor bags lead role opposite Prabhas and a hefty pay cheque
After months of dilly-dallying, the makers of Prabhas’s Saaho have finally found their leading lady. While reports over the months suggested that the film will reunite Prabhas with Anushka, it has finally been confirmed that Shraddha Kapoor will play the female lead. Among several options including the likes of Katrina Kaif and Pooja Hegde, the makers chose Shraddha by coughing up a whopping Rs 4 crore. Since it is a Telugu-Hindi bilingual and Shraddha has a decent fan base in Bollywood, the makers didn’t mind spending a bomb on her. Tipped to be a mega budget action extravaganza being made on a budget of over Rs 150 crore, the film is being directed by Sujeeth. Neil Nitin Mukesh has been roped in as the antagonist and he had said in one of his interviews that it will the biggest action film this country would have ever seen.
