For the past five years, Tollywood star Prabhas has been solely concentrating on the mega budget film Baahubali, and his dedication has paid off well with both Baahubali: the Beginning as well as Baahubali: the Conclusion turning out to be smash hits.
In fact, Baahubali: the Conclusion tasted a mammoth success at the box office breaking all records. With Baahubali safely out of the way, the star has moved over to his next project, titled Saaho.
Interestingly, the title has a connection with Baahubali as one of the songs in it, Saahore, was a big hit among movie buffs.
Saahoâ€™s teaser was released along with Baahubali: the Conclusion in April and the filmâ€™s shooting commenced recently with Prabhas finally joining the sets after he was done with the Baahubali promos.
While it has been widely publicised that the new film will be an action thriller, we hear that Prabhas will be seen in a completely new avatar. The film be shot extensively in Romania, Abu Dhabi and Mumbai.
The film, which has Anushka Shetty playing the female lead, also has Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh as the antagonist.
The actor made his debut in the south Indian film industry with the Vijay starrer Kaththi and this is second outing here. Being an action thriller, there would be a lot of action sequences included and it would be a treat to watch, say sources close to the film unit.
Made on a huge budget, the film is produced by V. Vamsi Krishna Reddy under the banner UV Creations. The technical crew of the film include Shankar â€“ Ehsaan â€“ Loy for music, R Madhi for camera and A Sreekar Prasad for editing.
Reports suggest that the film, made in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi will be hitting the screens on August 11 next year and the team is working towards this deadline.
We also hear that Prabhas is keen on dubbing for himself in Hindi and is perfecting the language skills even though he is busy with the shooting schedules.
