After the roaring success of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali, Prabhas has become one of the most desirable and loved actors of the Indian cinema. Besides thousands of marriage proposals, many actresses were also keen to work with him. It would be a matter of great fortune for any actress to work with Prabhas.
Especially, Bollywood actresses expressed their desire to work with Prabhas. His dedication to the film has brought him the name and fame across the globe. Recently, Alia Bhatt had tweeted about her wish to share screen space with the Darling Prabhas.
It seems that things aren’t going well for the makers of ‘Saaho’, Prabhas’ next. The makers of Saaho are in search of female lead opposite Prabhas and finding hard to finalize the actress. They wished to cast some Bollywood star who can appeal to the whole country and for the same purpose, they approached two of the most beautiful actresses of B-Town, Disha Patani, and Shraddha Kapoor.
But the ladies apparently quoted an exorbitant price which shocked the Saaho makers and also the team. According to the Saaho team, given that both Disha and Shraddha, have limited box office hits to their credit, with the latter’s previous two films Rock On 2 and Ok Jaanu having tanked at the box office, asking for a whopper of a fee isn’t reasonable.
Taking this into consideration, they really need to pay attention to a good script which can give their not-so-good film career a much-required boost rather than thinking about payment.
“Shraddha was our first choice. She heard us out and was almost jumping with excitement during the narration. Then, she quoted a price that had the team running out of her residence as fast as possible. She wanted Rs 8 crore. We were shocked. We don’t pay that kind of money to actors in Telugu cinema. But she wouldn’t budge. She was like, ‘I love the script and I’d love to work with Prabhas. But the price remains unchanged.’ We fled,” Saaho team quoted.
“She started her career in Telugu cinema. So we thought she would be keenly interested in the project, as it stars Prabhas. Disha wouldn’t meet us. When she finally did, she said she’d let us know. Later, her team members informed us that she liked the script, but would want Rs 5 crore as her fee. We want to know which Bollywood producer pays Disha that kind of money?” said the Saaho team.
However, both Shraddha and Disha lost the big opportunity to be starred opposite Prabhas. Later, they contacted few other B-Town actresses, but the deal couldn’t be finalized in Bollywood. The makers have now decided to cast a Telugu actress. “Saaho” would definitely do good, no matter which actress is starred against Prabhas, the report said.
