The teaser of Prabhas’ next, Saaho, created a lot of noise when it released with Baahubali 2. Prabhas’ look in the film came in for a lot of praise too. Designed as an action film, Saaho is scheduled to hit the screens in the latter half of 2018.
Everything looked pitch perfect for another Prabhas blockbuster when the fans realised that the female lead of the film hasn’t been finalised yet. Then some names cropped up. First it was said that Katrina Kaif is going to be featured opposite Prabhas, some even talked about Pooja Hegde.
Prabhas’ Baahubali co-star Anushka Shetty’s name also popped up sometimes during all this. Excited fans even floated some posters in which Prabhas was seen with a couple of probable names. However, key members of the film’s crew stayed silent on the casting.
Now, it seems that the director Sujeeth has zeroed in on a name, and it’s a Bollywood heroine. Well, we are talking about Shraddha Kapoor who is likely to come onboard for Saaho.
Mumbai Mirror has quoted the film’s producer as saying, “Shraddha is the perfect choice for the role. We are excited to have her on board with us. Saaho is Prabhas’s first film in Hindi and so it is very special for all of us. It is an ambitious project and will have some really high-octane action scenes.”
They haven’t named the source though.
If everything goes right then it can be another big venture for Shraddha Kapoor after Haseena Parkar.
