Prabhas’ first look from Saaho is nothing but a blatant Blade Runner 2049 rip-off

With the same foggy backdrop, long black overcoat and blue tint, the recently released first-look of Prabhas-starrer Saaho looks like it has been lifted straight off of the Blade Runner 2049 poster.

There’s no denying that the first look of Prabhas’ upcoming film Saaho has got fans hyped for the movie. The first look was released on the actor’s 38th birthday. And almost instantly took the internet by a storm with multiple shares across social media and fans praising the noir look of the film.

The poster shows Prabhas walking in a lane wearing a long black overcoat that also wraps around his face. Yep, that does sound similar, doesn’t it? The look and feel of the poster rips off from Ryan Gosling’s Blade Runner 2049 poster and the backdrop looks weirdly similar to that of the original Blade Runner. Fans online were also quick to notice this, and many even felt as if the only thing different in the poster was Prabhas’s face.

Here are some of the reactions:

This isn’t the first time that a movie poster has been lifted (or as they would like to call it — ‘inspired’). However, what confused fans further was that the original teaser for the film did not carry a similar vibe at all.
