Prabhas to star opposite Pooja Hegde in fourth multilingual after Baahubali franchise, Saaho; filming begins in June

After the mind-boggling success of the two-part Baahubali franchise which catapulted Prabhas to the national spotlight, the actor is now part of a Hindi-Telugu period romance with Pooja Hegde who made her debut in Mohenjo Daro. The as yet untitled film will be directed by Telugu director Radha Krishna Kumar in his Bollywood debut. 

Hegde is looking forward to working with Prabhas and told Mumbai Mirror that it was a great opportunity to prove herself as an actress. "I knew Prabhas was already on board when the makers approached me for this entertaining love story. It has a beautiful role for me and I’m really excited!" the actress said. 

She told India TV, "Since Mohenjo Daro took two years to complete, people assume I've done a lot of work down south but I'm still a new entrant. I was intimidated by Hrithik (Roshan) since it was my first Hindi film but this time, I'm more excited. I've only heard great things about Prabhas and his work ethic."

Hegde also said that she will be attending workshops which will involve her rehearsing some action and musical sequences along with co-star Prabhas, according to Bollywood Hungama. The film will be shot extensively across Europe and will go on floors in June. Hegde will start shooting by the end of the month and Prabhas will join the team after finishing the Shraddha Kapoor-starrer Saaho.

For Prabhas, this movie will mark his fourth multi-lingual after the two Baahubali films and Saaho.

Saaho to go Mission Impossible, Fast Five way!

Saaho to go Mission Impossible, Fast Five way: Prabhas to shoot 20-minute action sequence at Burj Khalifa

Prabhas’ Saaho is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated Telugu films in recent times. After canning important sequences in Hyderabad, the team is finally set to shoot predominant portions of the film abroad. The next few schedules of the film will take place across Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Romania where most of the film’s high-octane action scenes will be shot. 

One of the most exciting action scenes from the film will be shot on the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa. The last film that was shot there was Fast Five from The Fast and the Furious franchise. In the ongoing Dubai schedule, the team will shoot a 20-minute action stretch at Burj Khalifa. 

After months of being denied permission to shoot in Dubai, the team was finally granted permission recently. “Saaho will be an action spectacle. The film will take the use of action in Telugu cinema to a new level. The 20-minute action sequence in Burj Khalifa will be one of the biggest highlights of the film and it is being shot under the supervision of international stunt choreographer Kenny Bates. Action will leave audiences in awe,” a source from the film’s unit told Firstpost. 

Neil Nithin Mukesh, who plays the antagonist in Saaho, said in an earlier interview that this will the biggest action film this country would have ever seen. “Saaho is a larger-than-life film and post Baahubali, the entire nation is rooting for Prabhas. And where there is a mega hero, there will always be a mega villain too. My character has many shades like every other character in the film. It’s quite an exciting project, Sujeeth has a great vision. Saaho will be the biggest action film of 2018,” Neil said. 

In an earlier chat with this writer, director Sujeeth said major chunk of the film’s budget will be used for action sequences. "The scale on which it is being made, a major budget will be spent on some extravagant action scenes. Although it will be a commercial outing, we are attempting something new and I would like to keep that as a surprise element," Sujeeth said, adding that Prabhas will perform most of the stunts on his own. 

Apparently, Rs 40 crore is being spent on the stunt sequences. The movie has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. While Sabu Cyril will take care of production design, Madhie of The Ghazi Attack-fame will crank the camera. "We wanted the music to have a national appeal. We roped in Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy because they understand north as well southern sensibilities when it comes to composing music. They have also worked in the south," Sujeeth had said. 

The team has so far released a teaser and the first look. Tipped to be an ultramodern action flick, Saaho promises to present Prabhas in a never-seen-before action packed avatar. The makers of the film have kept Prabhas' look and character under wraps, further building tremendous curiosity. The film is being shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Also starring Mandira Bedi and Arun Vijay in crucial roles, the project will also be high on visual effects.

Saaho is easily one of the most anticipated films, after all it is Prabhas’ next project after Baahubali: The Conclusion. All eyes are on this hi-fi actioner that promises to showcase the actor in a completely different avatar. 

Also, for the first time Prabhas will be seen opposite Shraddha Kapoor. While the pairing initially came as a surprise to all the fans, they are now looking forward to a glimpse of this fresh duo. 

The Saaho team has been shooting extensively for the last few months but it’s the next schedule that we are most looking forward to. It will take off on April 10 in UAE. Renowned choreographer Kenny Bates will be canning the action sequences. 

And… the famous chase sequence that had been talked about earlier will be shot at the grand Burj Khalifa and Ras-Al-Khaimah, World Trade Center and Etihad Tower in Abu Dhabi. This is surely going to be an epic schedule. 

Not just Prabhas, but Shraddha will be pulling off hardcore stunts. She already gave us a glimpse of her action avatar in Baaghi, but in Saaho it’s going to be two fold or even more! With both pulling off killer stunts, this movie already promises to be an action fest. 

Prabhas is going to keep you guessing in Saaho.  The film also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Jackie Shroff and Chunky Pandey. The movie will release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The movie was to release this Diwali but reports suggest the film might be moved to next year. For those hoping to see Prabhas on the silver screen again might have to wait a little longer. 

The Telugu star became a global icon after Baahubali: The Conclusion released last year. His act as Amarendra Baahubali, the royal king of Mahishmati won him fans from all over the world. He became the most talked about star across industries. The film has managed to rake in a whopping Rs 1700 crore at the worldwide box office so far.
