When SS Rajamouli brought Prabhas and Anushka Shetty in Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, the entire nation went gaga over it. While it was being said that the duo would be paired opposite each other in Sujeeth’s film Saaho, latest buzz suggests otherwise. Anushka who played a beautiful princess in Baahubali, has reportedly walked out of the film, which stars Prabhas in the lead role. The south Indian actress had signed a big Tamil movie even before saying yes to Saaho and now, the dates of both the films have clashed, according to a Hindustan Times report.

So, it seems Anushka Shetty is not a part of Prabhas’s film anymore owing to date issues. Now that the actress has opted out, buzz has it that Pooja Hegde will be replacing Anushka in Saaho. Meanwhile, Prabhas will start shooting for the film by the end of July.

Recently, it was suggested that Begum Jaan actor Chunky Pandey has been roped in to play a prominent role in the film. The actor is apparently very thrilled about being casted in Prabhas’s film. Latest reports suggest that Chunky loved the script and will have a special role in Saaho. 

Coming to the female lead of Saaho, buzz had it that Sonam Kapoor was first considered to play Prabhas’s herione but things didn’t work out and the projects fell into Anushka’s lap. But now, it looks like Pooja Hegde will be seen romancing the 37-year-old actor on the big screen. Written and directed by Sujeeth, the film will mostly be shot in Mumbai. The movie also stars actor Neil Nitin Mukesh in a negative role.
