Prabhas aka Baahubali didn’t take up any project for 5 long years, for he only wanted to focus on the magnum Baahubali series of SS Rajamouli. But now, since both the installments of the series have released and earned unimaginable box office collections, Prabhas has become the most sought Indian actor.
To our delight, he will be now seen in an action thriller film ‘Saaho’ which is being directed by Telugu writer-director Sujeeth Reddy. The film has been in news for not being able to finalise the lead actress. Earlier, young faces of Bollywood, Disha Patani and Shraddha Kapoor were being roped in for the role but they lost out the opportunity. As per the reports, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra were also approached for the same. Looks like that didn’t work out either.
Joining him (Prabhas) on the screen will be none other than Katrina Kaif. Trade Analyst Ramesh Bala also shared the news on Twitter. An audience poll was also conducted to ask people who they would like Prabhas to romance with. Majority of the people suggested Katrina’s name.
Saaho is a multi-lingual action packed thriller and is being made with the whopping budget of over 150 crores. Presently it is at the pre-production stage but the shooting is scheduled to begin from the 3rd week of June.
The makers are keenly working on the action sequences and have hired extra-ordinarily talented people for the perfect outcome. It is also being said that a major chunk of budget, 35 crores will be spent for a particular action scene under the supervision of international stuntman Kenny Bates. Baahubali fame Sabu Cyril is handling production design while Madhie, whose work in Ghazi Attack vowed the audience will supervise the camera.
With all this being done, we are damn excited! By the way, the film is slated to release in 2018. The teaser is also already out.
Prabhas is on a vacation to USA after Baahubali’s release and Katrina is busy shooting Tiger Zinda Hai in Abu Dhabi with Salman Khan. Jagaa Jasoos, starring her and Ranbir is also all set to release this year.
