No matter how much we say that the opinion of people about about body image has changed, some instances prove that we can never change. Though Bharti Singh’s Advertisement and Bhumi Pednekar’s character in the movie ‘Dum Lagake Haisha’ left a huge impact on the society, some Bollywood actresses still face problems due to their weight.
A few days back we told you about TV serial ‘May I Come In Madam’ lead actress Neha Pendse who got warning from the makers of the serial to lose weight or she will be thrown out of the show. And the latest name in the list of actresses who faced problem due to weight is Anushka Shetty. The actress, who impressed viewers with her amazing acting in ‘Baahubali 2’, was recently thrown out of her upcoming movie ‘Saaho’ because she couldn’t lose weight.
Basking the success of Prabhas and Anushka’s chemistry in Baahubali 2, the makers of Saaho chose the same pair, but as per the instructions, Anushka couldn’t lose 5-8 kgs weight.
According to a report in Bollywoodlife, a source related to movie was quoted saying, “Anushka was training hard for the role in Saaho. But her weight has become a bone of contention. She is still about five to eight kilo overweight. And this might cost her the film itself.”
This is not the first time when there is news about the lead actress of the movie. The makers seem to be confused about the lead pair against Prabhas since beginning. Bollywood actresses including Katrina Kaif, Shraddha Kapoor, Disha Patani, Sonam Kapoor and Pooja Hegde were also approached for the role. Finally, Anushka Shetty’s name was settled for the role, which has also been dropped now.
