Prabhas to learn Hindi for Sahoo
The Baahubali starrer is going all in for his Bollywood debut
Buzz has it that Prabhas will be learning Hindi for his next, Sahoo, an action-entertainer directed by Sujeeth Reddy of Run Raja Run fame. Originally, the idea was to make the project in Telugu, and then dub it in Hindi and Tamil. But, now it's being said the film will be made simultaneously in Telugu and Hindi.
According to sources, the actor will be hiring a coach to teach him Hindi. "He's expected to learn the language by July, after which the first schedule of the film will begin," sources reveal.
Earlier, it was rumoured that Karan Johar and Rajamouli were planning to launch Prabhas in Bollywood, since Karan had distributed the Hindi version of Baahubali-2.
Touted to be made on a budget of Rs 150 crore, Sahoo has Sabu Cyril and cinematographer Madhie on board. It is learned that the film will be high on action sequences. "Although this is a commercial outing, the makers are attempting something different. International stuntman Kenny Bates is also on board."
Produced by UV Creations, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy will compose the music, and the film is expected to release later this year. Reportedly, Eros International is in talks with the makers of Sahoo to bag its all-India theatrical rights
