Arya also plays a prominent role as Mohanlal’s son. The cast also includes Sayyeshaa, Boman Irani, Shamna Kasim and Samuthirakani. Besides Tamil, the movie is also releasing in Telugu. The Telugu version has been titled as ‘Bandobast’. Both the Tamil and Telugu versions are expected to be released simultaneously.
‘Saaho’ directed by Sujeeth is also action-thriller, but made on an international scale. It is being made on a whopping budget of around Rs 300 crores. The movie has actors from various languages as part of its cast. Shradhha Kapoor is paired with Prabhas.
