Saaho, Prabhas’ high-budget action thriller, will be now releasing on August 30. UV Creations, the makers of the movie, made an official announcement in this regard on Friday. “We want to bring the best for the audience. For bringing finesse to the action sequences, we need more time,” a statement announcing the new date read.

Saaho is perhaps one of the most action-packed movies in Prabhas’ career. From the film’s teaser, it was clear that Saaho will be high on action with some high-octane performances by the actor with Shraddha Kapoor playing the female lead. Since the movie was supposed to hit the marquee on Independence Day, the makers have decided to release it in the month of August itself, “to stick to the month of Independence and patriotism”, the statement read.

“We are dedicated to bringing the movie in the largest scale,” the spokesperson further added. The change in date was expected as Kajal Aggarwal’s Comali and Sharwanand’s Ranarangam announced their release dates to be August 15 two days ago.

Earlier too, there was a confusion regarding the release date of the film since the makers of Saaho wanted to avoid a clash with Chiranjeevi’s Sye RaaSye Raa is now expected to hit screens in October.

Saaho, directed by Sujeeth, is bankrolled by V Vamsi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapati under the banner UV Creations on a budget of Rs 300 crore. The film’s star cast also includes Neil Nitin Mukesh, Lal, Arun Vijay, Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff, Vennela Kishore, Mahesh Manjrekar and Chunky Pandey in supporting roles.

A Sreekar Prasad is the film’s editor. Ghibran is scoring the music for the flick while Sabu Cyril, the art designer for Baahubali, is also part of the technical crew.

Saaho will be released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi. The film is undoubtedly one of the most awaited releases this year as it happens to be Prabhas’ first film after the astounding success of the Baahubali franchise.
