Saaho starring Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhas is inching closer to its release. The action-thriller is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Time and again, with new posters, songs and teasers, the makers are building up the suspense and the thrill to watch the film is just at the peak. New reports are surfacing the internet that the censor board has given Saaho its certificate and that too without any cuts. For the unversed, the Tamil and other regional versions have been certified by the CBFC in the past week. And just 4 days ahead of its release, the Hindi version of Saaho got its certification on Monday.
It has been said that Saaho has a run time of about 2 hours and 51 minutes, which means almost 3 hours of Prabhas’s humour, action and boyish charm! Talking about the Hindi version of Saaho, it has been given a U/A certificate with no cuts. From the trailer and the teasers, the makers have promised it to be the biggest action thriller of all time. Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhas’ chemistry would be another highlight in the movie and we cannot wait for them to create magic on screen. Already the songs have added to our woes making the wait even harder.
Prabhas became a nationwide sensation after the path-breaking success of the Baahubali saga — Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. While earlier this year, Prabhas made his debut on Koffee With Karan alongside his Baahubali co-star Rana Daggubati and director SS Rajamouli, he is now gearing up for his foray into Bollywood with his trilingual movie, Saaho.
In an interview with Mid-Day, the Telugu superstar said that he feels audience like him in action flicks and hopes people like his action-hero avatar in Saaho. “After Baahubali it’s an action thriller. I feel people like to see me in action movies, so after Baahubali, they may like it.”
Set to release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil, Saaho also stars a bevy of Bollywood actors, starting from Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead; actors Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mandira Bedi will all play the antagonists. The action-thriller has secured a 15 August release in India.
It was previously reported that Saaho is going to be the second-most expensive film ever made in India, with a budget of Rs 250 Crore.
Shraddha Kapoor, who will be making her debut in Telugu films with the feature, is going to play an “important character” from whose perspective the film is going to be narrated, Prabhas said in a report by Gulf News.
Telugu superstar Prabhas is riding high after the path-breaking success of Baahubali sagas — Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. He is all set to be seen in an action hero avatar in the upcoming trilingual film (Hindi, Telugu and Tamil) Saaho that also stars a bevy of Bollywood actors, starting from Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead; actors Jacky Shroff, Chunky Pandey, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mandira Bedi — all in negative roles.
While the speculations of the Baahubali star’s Bollywood debut has been doing the rounds for quite some time now, Prabhas, in a recent interview revealed that he will be seen in a Bollywood romance drama, Reports India Today.
India Today‘s report suggest that the actor spoke to The Times of India and said, “I watch a lot of Hindi films. I live in Hyderabad, where 60 per cent of the people speak Hindi. I am getting good offers from Bollywood. I had okay-ed a script three years ago. It is a love story that I will do post Saaho.”
Prabhas, further speaking about his love for Bollywood, also spoke about the cordial relationship he shares with Karan Johar. “I made a good association with Karan Johar. If I want anything, I think I can ask him. He has helped us a lot. In fact, I met some actors (from Bollywood) in Karan’s house. They were all very chilled out.”
Speaking about fitting in different genres, he said that it is the script that matters at the end. If the script is good, an action star can pull of a romantic film and vice versa, reports Indian Express.
Prabhas is reportedly shooting for Saaho in Los Angeles. The film is expected to hit the screens later this year.
