It is known that the hunt for the leading lady of Prabhas’ new film ‘Saaho’ is still on. As the film is being made in Hindi too, makers want a Bollywood actress with good looks and athletic body. ‘Aashiqui 2’ fame Shraddha Kapoor was reportedly the first choice of makers. After hearing the narration, she loved the script and was wiling to pair with Prabhas. But, the remuneration she quoted forced the makers to run out of her residence as quickly as possible. She reportedly quoted a whopping 8 crore. It may be noted hat she wouldn’t get even half of that amount in Bollywood films.
Later, when makers approached rising starlet Disha Patani, she reportedly asked a fee of Rs 5 crore. She is yet to sign a major Hindi film but the sexy lady was adamant about the exorbitant remuneration. Makers could shell this amount for a top Bollywood actress like Katrina Kaif but not on a relatively newcomer like Disha.
Vexed with the undeserving and exorbitant demands of Bollywood beauties, makers are now considering Pooja Hegde to pair with Prabhas in Saaho. She may not risk losing a project like Saaho.
