The much awaited trailer for Saaho has finally dropped and it looks to be a promising action film. The film stars Baahubali actor Prabhas opposite Shraddha Kapoor.

From the trailer, it seems that Prabhas will be playing the role of an undercover official investigating a robbery case, with Shraddha playing the role of Amritha Nair, a crime branch officer. The video has a mix of romance, suspense and action sequences, with the last shot showing a bare-bodied Prabhas washing blood off his body. There's also a shot of the actor leaping off a cliff and a high-rise building crashing. The extensive VFX work required in the film is said to be the reason behind its delay. It was originally supposed to hit the screens on August 15.

The teaser for the film was released in June and garnered several views on YouTube. The teaser promised an action-packed film and the trailer only exemplifies this. Several high octane action sequences and a full fledged entertainer can be expected.

The first song of the film Psycho Saiyaan was released by the makers in July following which the second, Ye Chota Nuvvuna was released earlier this month. Both were well-received by fans.

Saaho hits the screens on August 30 and is being released in Telugu along with dubbed versions in Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi. It will also be released in IMAX screens across the country.

Prabhas was last seen in the Rajamouli-directed magnum opus Baahubali while his co-star was last seen in the Hindi film Batti Gul Meter Chalu along with Shahid Kapoor and Yami Gautam.

Saaho is directed by Sujeeth and V Vamshi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapati are bankrolling the film under the banner of UV creations on a whopping 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 Chunkey Pandey in supporting roles. R Madhi is handling the cinematography while A Sreekar Prasad is doing the editing.
