Anushka Shetty, who gained nearly 20 kilos for the upcoming Telugu-Tamil bilingual Size Zero, will soon enroll for a special weight loss programme. She will shed weight for the shoot of Baahubali The Conclusion.
"Anushka has to lose some weight before she joins the sets of 'Baahubali 2'. She will undergo a weight loss therapy in US, and will soon leave to attend the same," a source close to the 33-year old star revealed.
"She was supposed to fly to US earlier this month but got held up due to the release and promotions of her latest film Rudhramadevi," the source said.
On Tuesday, filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli began work on the second installment in the Baahubali franchise. Anushka and other lead actors of the film are expected to join the sets from November.
"Anushka has a very important role in the second part and hence, she's concentrating on losing the extra weight as soon as possible," the source said.
Nearly 40 percent of Baahubali The Conclusion has already been wrapped up and the makers plan to complete the remaining portion over the course of the next six months.
"Looks who is on the plane with me", Rana tweeted this morning.
Anushka has put on 20 kilos for her next outing Size Zero. The film is expected to release in the first week of November.
Anushka has to get back to her old self to avoid continuity issues for Baahubali The Conclusion.
