South star – Prabhas – is best known for playing the role of Baahubali in S. S. Rajamouli’s two-part drama. The actor spent nearly five years shooting for Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion. After he finished both the parts, everyone was eager to know which film he signs next. Prabhas gave his nod to Saaho, a multilingual film directed by Sujeeth. Sujeeth has only made one film before this which is the Sharwanand and Seerat Kapoor starrer – Run Raja Run.
Besides Prabhas, Saaho also stars Arun Vijay, Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Evelyn Sharma, Amy Jackson, Jackie Shroff, Mandira Bedi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Chunkey Pandey, Murali Sharma, Vennela Kishore, Narendra Jha and Rudranil Ghosh. Saaho is being simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi, and it is supposed to be the second most expensive Indian film till date.
The release date of Saaho is not out yet. The movie was supposed to hit theaters in 2018 but will most likely get pushed to next year. This is because of the intensive VFX and CGI work that will take place during the post-production stage. The success of Saaho is crucial for its lead actors as Prabhas needs to prove that he has much more to offer than just play Baahubali, while Shraddha Kapoor’s last few movies haven’t done well at the box-office. The first poster of Saaho was out last year and there was a huge controversy around it as it was way too similar to the poster of Ryan Gosling’s Blade Runner 2049.
