While Prabhas-starrer Saaho faced some starting troubles, shooting for the film is proceeding briskly. And a host of Bollywood actors too have joined the film’s star cast, the latest addition being television anchor and actor Mandira Bedi.

With Saaho being made as a multilingual in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam, the makers have roped in a handful of Bollywood actors to draw in film-goers from the north. So actor Shraddha Kapoor stars as the female lead, while Neil Nitin Mukesh plays the baddie in the film. The star cast also includes Mahesh Manjrekar, Jackie Shroff and Chunkey Pandey.

"Mandira, who plays a negative character called Kalki, was shooting in Hyderabad with Jackie till recently. They shot for some action sequences including hand-tohand combat scenes. Their second schedule will commence shortly," the Mumbai Mirror quoted a source close to the production as saying.

 Others being roped in for the supporting cast are Tinnu Anand, Lal, and Vennela Kishore.

Touted to be a crime thriller, Sahoo is being directed by Sujeeth Reddy. The film is being produced by V Vamsi Krishna Reddy and Pramod under the banners of UV Creations and Dharma Productions on a big budget of Rs 150 crore.

Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy are scoring music for the film, with cinematography by R Madhi. Saaho is slated for release next year.
