Not Shraddha Kapoor, Katrina Kaif was the first choice for Saaho?

This is Shraddha Kapoor’s year. The actress may have not had a release post Stree, and might have been asked to walk out of the Saina Nehwal biopic, but the year looks promising for the Chhichore actress who has two more releases this year, starting with her Telugu film, Saaho, which releases this week.

As the debate about Kapoor’s remuneration is doing the rounds (read the story here), our sources inform us that Kapoor wasn’t the first choice for the Prabhas lead film. Katrina Kaif was. But because the makers could not accommodate her fee into the budget of the film, things did not work out with the Zero actress.

The source informs, “The Saaho makers couldn’t afford to pay Katrina Rs 5 crore, which is how much she asked for.” And hence Shraddha Kapoor stepped into the picture.
