Comparing Saaho and the Baahubali instalments, Taran wrote, “Prabhas versus #Prabhas [opening weekend biz]...2015: #Baahubali ₹ 22.35 cr. 2017: #Baahubali2 ₹ 128 cr. 2019: #Saaho ₹ 79.08 cr. Nett BOC. India biz. #Hindi version.”
A report also states the film, in all languages, collected Rs 88 crore nett and Rs 101 crore gross on the first day which makes it the second film after Bahubali 2: The Conclusion to hit the Rs 100 crore gross mark on day one. Talking about why Saaho should not be compared to Baahubali, film trade analyst Girish Johar had told Hindustan Times, “It would not be fair to compare Saaho with Baahubali. It was a traditional Indian, desi mythological film. Saaho is contemporary, sleek, stylish and upmarket film. Prabhas is a star and is coming after delivering two of the biggest blockbusters but its not right to compare them.”
The film has been performing well worldwide and collected Rs 205 crore in two days of its release in all languages. As per the film’s production house, Saaho made an opening worldwide collection of Rs 130 crore in all languages and continued winning the box office on the second day, making a total of Rs 205 crore in two days.
Directed by Sujeeth, the film also stars Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay, Murali Sharma amongst others.
