Following the massive success of Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion, which took about five years of his time, Prabhas is now busy with Saaho, a bilingual film being made in Telugu and Hindi. While this film’s shooting is still in progress, we have reports coming in that Prabhas has inked a new deal to star in another untitled bilingual. The film will be helmed by Radha Krishna Kumar and have Pooja Hegde opposite him.
On bagging the role, Pooja Hegde reportedly told Mumbai Mirror, “I knew Prabhas was already on board when the makers approached me for this entertaining love story. It has a beautiful role for me and I’m really excited!” She has also been quoted by India TV as saying, “Since Mohenjo Daro took two years to complete, people assume I’ve done a lot of work down south but I’m still a new entrant. I was intimidated by Hrithik (Roshan) since it was my first Hindi film, but this time, I’m more excited. I’ve only heard great things about Prabhas and his work ethic.”
To go on the floors in June this year, the film will be shot predominantly in several European countries, say sources.
Meanwhile, Prabhas will be wrapping up Saaho, directed by Sujeeth Reddy. The star is paired opposite Shraddha Kapoor in this entertainer, which will mark her debut in Tollywood. The film, which went on the floors last year, stars Arun Vijay, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Evelyn Sharma and Jackie Shroff in crucial roles. Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy are the music directors for this flick while R Madhi is the cinematographer and A Sreekar Prasad is the editor.
Reports say that when Prabhas is done with Saaho, he will be moving over to this yet-to-be-titled flick.
