Baahubali star Prabhas is currently vacationing in the US. After he resumes work, he will start shooting for filmmaker Sujeeth’s Telugu film, Saaho. Speculations are rife that some parts of the film might be shot in Mumbai. Interestingly, the story of the film, as per reports, also begins in Mumbai.

“The plot unfolds in Mumbai. Director Sujeeth wants to shoot action scenes with Prabhas on Mumbai roads during the rains,” DNA quoted a source as saying. As per the report, while a major portion of the film will be shot in Abu Dhabi, few songs and stunts will be canned in Europe. The film is supposed to go on floors in June, and the shooting in Mumbai is expected to begin in July.

Prabhas, who had invested about five years to the Baahubali series, now wants to concentrate completely on Saaho after he is back from his holiday. This high-tech action film will be made in three languages — Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have composed the music for the film.

Several female Bollywood actors were reportedly considered to play the lead alongside Prabhas, but he is keen on working with someone from the Telugu industry. “Prabhas feels he owes it to the Telugu movie industry to work with the local talent. Although several A-list heroines from Bollywood were considered, he has finally decided to work with a Telugu actresss in Saaho,” added the source.

Meanwhile, the stunts in the film will be designed by international stuntman Kenny Bates of Transformers fame. Sujeeth had earlier said that a major chunk of the budget of the film will be used for the action sequences.
