Theatrical rights of Prabhas’ Saaho bagged by T Series for a whopping Rs 125 crores!
‘Baahubali’ star Prabhas is currently shooting for his upcoming movie Saaho directed by Sujeeth. This big budget movie has a plethora of actors from industries across the country as per of its cast. Following the glorious success of Baahubali, Prabhas has become a nationwide sensation. To cash in on his huge popularity, the makers have planned Saaho as a trilingual in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages.
One of Bollywood’s leading banners, T Series has acquired the theatrical rights of Saaho for a whopping Rs 125 crores. T Series is collaborating with UV creations to distribute the film in the north Indian market. With T Series entering the scene, a wide release is now guaranteed for Saaho.
On bagging the rights for Saaho, T Series head Bhushan Kumar said, “The universality of Saaho is what appealed to me. While Prabhas is a pan India star, the film’s content and its treatment will give it a global appeal. It is an exciting collaboration and we are looking forward to present the film to our Hindi audience.”
Vamsi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapati are jointly funding this movie under the banner of UV Creations. In an attempt to give the movie a pan Indian appeal, the makers have been roped in several noted actors from various industries. Bollywood diva Shraddha Kapoor is playing the female lead. Veteran Bollywood star Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Chunky Pandey, Mandira Bedi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay, Lal and Tinnu Anand are playing prominent roles in the movie.
Prabhas sports an extremely stylish look in the movie. After the release of Baahuabli 2: The Conclusion, Prabhas had trimmed down his weight to sport a leaner physique in Saaho. It is a very ambitious project made on a huge scale. International stuntman Kenny Bates, famous for his works in Hollywood films like Die Hard and Transformers has been roped in to choreograph the high octane stunts in Saaho. Renowned cinematographer R Madhie is wielding the camera and the famed trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is handling the music department. The movie is slated for a 2019 release.
