"Baahubali" star Prabhas' new film "Saaho" will hit the screens on the Independence Day on August 15 next year. The release date was announced via a statement. The film, also starring Shraddha Kapoor, is being shot in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu simultaneously. It promises to provide a pan-India appeal. On Prabhas' birthday earlier this year, the makers had shared a glimpse of the Abu Dhabi schedule titled "Shades of Saaho" from the action-heavy film, raising the excitement of the audience. Action stunts have been choreographed by international action master Kenny Bates.
Trade Analyst and Bollywood critic Taran Adarsh also announced the news of Saaho's release date on his social media. He wrote, "Mark the date... After #Baahubali2, Prabhas' next film #Saaho to hit the screens on #IndependenceDay... 15 Aug 2019... Costars Shraddha Kapoor."
"Saaho" also has an ensemble cast of Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Pandey, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay and Murali Sharma, amongst others. It has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Director of photography Madhie has lent his creativity to the film, with veteran Sreekar Prasad as the editor and Sabu Cyril as the production designer. A UV Creations production, the film will be presented by T-Series and its Hindi distribution is being taken care of by AA Films.
Shraddha Kapoor started shooting for Saaho in July this year. She shared her look from the flick on Instagram which already kicked off the chatter. She is seen dressed in a sophisticated blouse with trousers. Interestingly, after Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai, Saaho becomes the second longest film to be shot in Abu Dhabi. The crew consists of over 250 members who are working day in and day out to turn Saaho into a reality.
