Saaho to be made on a budget of Rs 300 crore
The Prabhas starrer also features Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, and Evelyn Sharma in pivotal roles.
The leaked pictures of Prabhas from his upcoming action film, Saaho, has been trending on social media, sending his fans into a tizzy. Reportedly, two pictures of the Baahubali actor riding a sports bike in Abu Dhabi, during a 20-minute car chase sequence from the film, have made their way to the internet.
Popular stuntman Kenny Bates, who has worked on Hollywood films like Pearl Harbour, Transformers, and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, has been roped in to choreograph important action sequences in the film.
“It’s a 50-day long schedule in Abu Dhabi and Dubai that'll have the team filming high-octane chase sequences in the downtown and Burj Khalifa. The makers have invested Rs 300 crore on the film, of which Rs 90 crore will be spent on the action sequences alone. They have to spend more on visual effects and sets due to the backdrop,” says a source from the production team.
It is learnt that Prabhas has undergone extensive plyometric obstacle races, cardiovascular and weight training sessions to pull off these scenes. Directed by Sujeet and produced under UV Creations, Saaho is being filmed in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. It also features Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, and Evelyn Sharma in pivotal roles. Music of the film is by the Bollywood trio Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy.
