The film’s release will clash with Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal and John Abraham’s Batla House.
The new poster features Prabhas gazing seriously and sporting what appears to be peculiar-looking shades. Saaho, which has been directed by Sujeeth, has been in the making for close to two years. The film has been predominantly shot abroad on a big budget and features some high-octane action sequences. One of the major schedules of the film has been shot in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The film, which will be released in Telugu, Hindi and Tamil, also stars Arun Vijay, Jackie Shroff and Mandira Bedi in pivotal roles. The project marks the southern debut of Shraddha Kapoor, who will be seen in an action-packed role. Neil Mukesh has been roped in as the prime antagonist and he had said in one of his interviews that Saaho will the biggest action film this country would have ever seen.
Neil had said, “Saaho is a larger-than-life film and, post Baahubali, the entire nation is rooting for Prabhas. And where there is a mega hero, there will always be a mega villain too. My character has many shades like every other character in the film. It’s quite an exciting project, Sujeeth has a great vision. Saaho will be the biggest action film of 2018.”
