Saaho postponed to August 30?
The makers have reportedly postponed their film's release to avert a box-office clash with Mission Mangal and Batla House
Director Sujeeth's upcoming spy-thriller Saaho, that stars Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor, was slated for release on the same day (August 15) as Akshay Kumar-starrer Mission Mangal and John Abraham’s Batla House. However, the makers of Saaho have postponed their film's release to avert a box-office clash between the three.
While a formal announcement is awaited from the production house, UV Creations, it is learnt that they have zeroed in on August 30 as the new release date. “Releasing three big films on the same day would affect the collections and they will eat each other’s revenue. Keeping the expectations and the stakes involved in mind, the makers have decided to defer the release of Saaho by two weeks. The Prabhas-starrer will now have good chances to register record openings across languages on its opening day,” informs a source.
Made on a budget of Rs 300 crore, the shooting of the film was recently wrapped up and the post-production work is underway. Also featuring Mahesh Manjrekar, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, and Chunky Pandey in supporting roles, Saaho has background score by Ghibran.
