“But that should not be any problem for Shraddha,” says a source from the Saaho team. “She is more than capable of getting back into her original shape, plus some more. She needs a more 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 can see reason and will cut down her price to accommodate the Telugu film’s budget.
“Shraddha always liked the script of Saaho. But earlier she couldn’t do the film as she quoted a price the Telugu producers could not afford. This time after they approached her when Anushka Shetty had to exit, Shraddha quoted a more reasonable price. And she’s on,” says the source.
