Recently, a source close to the project had revealed to a
leading daily, "Katrina Kaif is not in Saaho. She could've been
part of it, as we had chased her for six months."

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."
Shraddha Demanded Rs 8 Crores?
"She wanted Rs 8 Crores. 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.''
Disha Was Also Approached For Saaho Too!
The same source had further revealed, ‘'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

Disha that kind of money?"
Coming back to Prabhas & Anushka Shetty, we are totally
looking forward to this pair and hope the duo makes their pairing
in Saaho, official as soon as possible!
