Shoot commences for Prabhas' Saaho
Word has it that Anushka plays the female lead in this action-thriller that’s directed by Sujeeth.
Prabhas’ next, Saaho, had its first schedule launched on Friday. The actor is said to be playing the role of a ruthless cop in the film, with Kaththi-villain Neil Nitin Mukesh playing the baddie. While Prabhas is yet to join the sets, the team has started shooting the solo portions of Neil Nitin.
Word has it that Anushka plays the female lead in this action-thriller that’s directed by Sujeeth. If true, this will mark the collaboration of Anushka and Prabhas for the fourth time, following Billa, Mirchi and the Baahubali franchise.
Sources say that a major chunk of the film’s budget has been allocated for the film’s stunt sequences. International stuntman Kenny Bates, famous for his work on films such as Die Hard and Transformers, has been roped in for the project. Planned as a quadrilingual (Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi), Saaho’s music will be handled by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, who’ll be making their debut in Malayalam cinema. With Sabu Cyril taking care of the production design, and cinematography by Madhie, Saaho, which will be shot extensively in Abu Dhabi and Europe, is expected to hit the screens by early 2018.
