Mehreen Gains Weight, Loses Golden Chance

Mehreen Gains Weight, Loses Golden Chance

With Tholi Prema opened to rave reviews from all corners, one person who regrets most would be Mehreen as she was the initial cast for the Varsha's role played by Raashi Khanna.

Apparently, director Venky Atluri wanted a girl who is slim, urban and posh. But Mehreen gained a lot of kilos especially after Mahanubhavudu and couldn't fit for the requirements of Varsha's role in Tholi Prema. The makers of Tholi Prema have opted for Raashi Khanna who really did a great job. Raashi's acting prowess was noticeable on screen. Especially in emotional scenes, she really excelled and acted equally well on par with Varun, thus making the simple love story further engaging.

Had Mehreen did this, certainly it would have helped her much since her last two films C/O Surya, Jawaan were disappointments. But sadly, Mehreen lost a good film.
