My 10th class buddy Prabhas’ Saaho created another benchmark in the history of Indian cinema, with an opening of 100 Crores at the box office in India alone. After Baahubali 2, Saaho is the second film that has taken the nation by storm!
The action thriller, Saaho, marks Prabhas’ Bollywood debut and Shraddha Kapoor’s Telugu debut. The film which opened on Friday, ran with full houses from the morning show. The movie also has a fantastic cast of Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay and Murali Sharma.
Saaho is presented by T-Series, produced by UV Creations and directed by Sujeeth.
Earlier this week, India’s heartthrob actor ‘Prabhas’ was seen at the press conference for ‘Saaho’ at The Leela Palace Hotel. The media and fans were seen waiting eagerly for the Rebel-Star’s appearance. It was great to meet him after 25 years! Also I met Shraddha Kapoor recently at IIFA Bangkok.
Prabhas’ took on all the questions with grace and charm. When asked if he prefers ‘Baahubali’ over ‘Saaho’ he said, Baahubali is what got me a place in the hearts of numerous Indians. But ‘Saaho’ is a passion project of Sujeeth and everything from the trailer to dialogues have been carefully worked on and I hope you love it as much as you did Baahubali.
Talking about Bangalore, he said, he has only fond memories of Bangalore, the bright Brigade Road and beautiful tree-laden walkways and how he and his friends would come down on vacations and enjoy here.
When asked about Kannada films he said, there are several great projects that have come out of the Kannada Industry like Yash’s ‘KGF’ that are showing us how it’s done and expressed interest towards acting in a Kannada film if something good comes along.
