Post the success of Baahubali, all eyes are now set on actor Prabhas’ upcoming film Saaho.
Made on a budget of Rs. 150 crore, the movie has been in the news ever since its teaser release earlier this year. Prabhas will also be fighting against three antagonists, all from Bollywood.
Last seen playing the baddie in Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar 3, Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff will play the main antagonist in the film.
Speaking to Mid Day, Jackie said, "I am happy to be a part of Saaho with Prabhas, who is one of the biggest actors in India at the moment. It's wonderful to know that he trusts me and thinks I can pull off this kind of a role. I have seen both the films of the Baahubali series and loved them," he said.
While Bollywood actor Chunkey Pandey will be the second antagonist, Neil Nitin Mukesh, who got fame in Tamil with Kaththi, will be seen as a tech-savvy nerd.
Touted to be a hi-tech action drama, The film is helmed by Sujeeth Reddy of Run Raja Run fame. Shraddha Kapoor was recently announced as the female lead.
The film will be shot across Mumbai, US, Abu Dhabi and Europe and it will be released in Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi languages.
After spending five years of his career on the Baahubali franchise, actor Prabhas joined the sets of the upcoming multi-lingual action film earlier this week.
“He will shoot non-stop for the next three weeks. He is quite excited because he is returning to a film set after a long gap and will get to shoot for something different in a long time," a source from the film's unit had earlier told IANS.
