After earning international acclaim with the Baahubali franchise, Prabhas’ next multi-lingual outing Saaho, a mega budget action spectacle, is awaited with very high expectations. The shooting of the project is going on in full swing. Rumours are making the rounds that Prabhas will be seen essaying dual roles in the film, being bankrolled by UV Creations. While the makers are yet to make an official announcement, reports have been doing the rounds over the last two days. Being directed by Sujeeth, the film features Prabhas in a never seen before action avatar.
Saaho’s first look poster, released earlier this year in October, showcases a mysterious Prabhas donning a mask covering his face that serves as a perfect tease to the masses. Against the backdrop of skyscrapers and a crime scene like set up, Prabhas is seen leading a poised walk. The mystique poster further raises anticipation levels by keeping the viewer guessing about Prabhas’ character and the genre of the film. Six months after delivering India’s biggest blockbuster Baahubali 2, Prabhas is back with his upcoming trilingual Saaho.
The makers had made a sensational announcement of Saaho in late April this year by treating the audience with a teaser of the film. Over the months, the project is being largely kept under wraps with little information out in public domain. The film marks the southern debut of actress Shraddha Kapoor, who is thrilled to be part of the project. Neil Nitin Mukesh plays the antagonist while popular Tamil actor Arun Vijay will be seen in a crucial role.
