It was widely reported that Mumbai schedule that began recently would be the last shooting program for Prabhas starrer “Saaho” but the movie has not yet wrapped up.
Buzz is that Prabhas is not happy with certain portions of the movie.
Prabhas wants everything in the film look lavish and each episode be stunning. He doesn’t want to compromise on the quality.
Though he is totally loved the action episodes filmed by Hollywood choreographer Kenny Bates, Prabhas is certainly not happy with the recently shot sequences.
“Saaho” is an action adventure that is being made with whopping Rs 300 Cr budget.
The production house UV Creations is not leaving any stone unturned to make it a glitzy action affair.
Everything in the film will be on par with international standards. Since a lot is riding on this film that already created records in terms of pre-release business, Prabhas is particular about the quality.
After completing the current schedule, Prabhas will take final call on which portions should be filmed again. So, the movie’s shoot will only be wrapped next month.
“Saaho” is slated for August 15 release.
Prabhas is no longer interested in doing films with modest budget. What is modest budget? For him, a film made with or under Rs 100 Cr.
Today his films’ Hindi rights alone are fetching more than Rs 125 Cr. All in all, his films have potential to do Rs 400 Cr pre-release business.
Given such massive market, he doesn’t want to compromise on the scale of his movies. He wants everything should be on lavish scale.
In an interview, Prabhas revealed that his fans and audiences now are expecting the best from him and he doesn’t want to compromise on the quality.
Quality requires lot of budget. Hence, Prabhas will only do films that have more than Rs 200 Cr investment.
His “Saaho” is being made with Rs 300 Cr. Another period romantic drama in the direction of Radha Krishna Kumar is pegged at Rs 225 Cr.
The box-office fate of these two films will decide the future course of Prabhas and his market.
He is now basking in the glory of “Baahubali 2” that did collect Rs 1700 Cr from theaters worldwide.
In a rather interesting manner, Prabhas took it to Instagram to share an old photograph as his first post on this platform.
His fans have been waiting with bated breath to check his first post on this platform ever since he created an account last Friday.
Fans were expecting brand new photograph from his current movie “Saaho” but the handsome star posted an unseen photograph of Rajamouli’s “Baahubali” movies in which he was seen performing sword fight.
Prabhas has secured 782k followers on Instagram even before his first post. The star is expected to share lot of his private pictures on this account.
At present, he is shooting for a song shoot for “Saaho” along with Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor.
Prabhas who is shooting for two films back-to-back has streamlined the release dates for them. ‘Saaho’, which is 19th movie in Prabhas’s career, will hit the screens on August 15, 2019.
The Rs 300 Cr mega action movie is in its last leg of shoot. Prabhas will now work on this movie’s final schedule to wrap up entire shoot by May end.
On the other hand, Prabhas recently completed shooting for director Radha Krishna Kumar’s love story. This film that has Pooja Hegde as the heroine is produced by Prabhas’s pedda nanna Krishnam Raju. This is period love story set in Europe.
Director Radha Krishna Kumar tweets, “Done with the 2nd schedule of #prabhas20 #A classical tale of two timeless lovers set in the twilights of 1970’s Europe. #Prabhas2020.”
It is confirmed that this period love story will hit the screens either for Sankarnthi 2020 or Feb 2020. The director has confirmed that movie is not going to be released this year.
Prabhas is planning to have a release every year hence forth as his fans are putting pressure on him to do more movies.
He will also be signing couple of new movies after wrapping ‘Saaho’ and this untitled period love story.
Prabhas has been working for “Saaho” for the last two years but still the film’s work has not yet been completed.
The film that is being made in four languages with whopping Rs 300 Cr budget requires lot of time for post-production, promotional activities and traveling to many cities.
Considering all these factors, he reportedly told director Sujith to finish the film in the first week of May itself. “Saaho” is scheduled for August 15th release.
If the film is completed in May, they will have sufficient time for post-production and publicity. Hence, Prabhas has put final deadline to Sujith, his team and the producers.
Prabhas will have to move to his other film, a period love story being directed by Radhakrishna Kumar.
After working for a month or so for this love story, he will again focus on promotional events of “Saaho”.
A brand new poster from “Saaho” is being exhibited in Mumbai. Or social media makes us believe.
Although the poster is not released by the team to the media or on social media, the poster has been kept in Mumbai multiplexes as the next attraction, says a social media post.
The team is aggressively promoting “Saaho” in all major metros from now onwards itself.
This poster is the reason for Prabhas getting trolled on social media. The poster looks exact carbon copy of Tom Cruise’s 2013 film “Oblivion”.
Same gun, same building in the backdrop and the posture is exactly same. It is not clear whether this poster is official material or fan made.
This is not the first time that “Saaho” posters getting trolled. The film’s first look was also heavily criticised as they looked similar to Hollywood movie “Blade Runner 2049.”
When the team wants to release the film globally in big way, shouldn’t “Saaho” get original ideas for promotional material?
The second teaser showcasing the making visuals of high octane action thriller of Prabhas is out.
The 1 minute video of Saaho named Shades of Saaho: Chapter 2 is filled with non stop action with heavy duty guns and bullets flying all over the place.
The first look of its leading lady Shraddha Kapoor is revealed and she looks badass holding a gun in hand.
The final shot will give goosebumps to Prabhas fans as the Baahubali star looks his stylish best.
The video ends with Prabhas saying “Boom”, which defines the teaser that has stunning visuals and stupendous music.
Saaho is a high budget action extravaganza that was never done on Indian screen on this scale.
Director Sujeeth and his team looks so immersed in giving us a never before action spectacle and this video will only take the expectations to a whole new level.
