We had already reported that actor Neil Nitin Mukesh plays the antagonist in Prabhas’s Saaho, which is currently on the floors. The Johnny Gaddar actor has already completed shooting for the first schedule of the Rs 150 crore project and he can’t stop raving about the experience. Talking about the project, Neil told Mumbai Mirror, “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.”
Asked about his look in Saaho, which he has constantly reinvented with each project, he said, “It’s a never-seen-before avatar in Saaho too. We have just started shooting and there is still a long way to go. There’s a lot of action and we will start training for it soon. I have done action before, but this takes it to another level. International stunt coordinators are being flown down to design it.” The film, being directed by Sujeeth, will simultaneously be shot and release in four languages - Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi.
On teaming up with Prabhas for the first time, Neil described Prabhas as a superb actor, a people’s person and extremely humble. “He is also producing the film and it’s great to work with him and his team,” says Neil, who will be shooting in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi and Romania too. This will one of the most anticipated projects of 2018, and it will be Prabhas’s first release post the Baahubali wave and hence it’s riding on very high expectations.
