A new name is popping up every now and then for the last couple of weeks in connection with the female lead in Prabhas' forthcoming movie Saaho (Sahoo). Thanks to the immense curiosity of the audience around his next flick after the success of Baahubali 2, the rumour mills have worked big time to keep the fans guessing.
Many names from Bollywood have been linked with Saaho in the recent weeks. During the promotion of Baahubali 2 in Mumbai, Prabhas had revealed in an interview that he likes Deepika Padukone and soon, the reports were out that he was likely to team up with her in his next flick.
This was just the beginning of such rumours. Soon, the buzz was that Katrina Kaif had been approached for Saaho and she rejected the offer after keeping the project on hold for six months.
A source reportedly clarified to Deccan Chronicle that Katrina Kaif's team was spreading false news after Baahubali 2 turned out to be a hit. In between, Amy Jackson and Shraddha Kapoor were also linked to this project.
Pooja Hegde's name followed soon. It was speculated that she was approached for the project and this too turned out to be just a rumour.
Now, Parineeti Chopra's name has started doing rounds citing that she is a strong contender to romance Prabhas in Saaho. Yet again there is no official confirmation on her being part of the mega-budget.
These speculations one after the other have left the audience wondering whether the actresses are trying to use the Baahubali popularity for their personal mileage or they are sending feelers to the makers to consider them for Saaho!
