- "I am happy to be a part of Saaho with Prabhas," said Jackie Shroff
- Neil Nitin Mukesh and Chunky Pandey also play villains in the film
- Saaho will release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil
Of being a part of the film, Jackie Shroff told mid-day, "I am happy to be a part of Saaho with Prabhas, who is one of the biggest actors in India at the moment. It's wonderful to know that he trusts me and thinks I can pull off this kind of a role. I have seen both the Baahubalis and loved them. They reminded me of my childhood."
Saaho is Prabhas' first film after Baahubali series. The teaser of the film was released just a few days before Baahubali: The Conclusion hit the screens. Saaho promises to be an action-packed film. Stuntman Kenny Bates, known for films like Die Hard and Transformers has been roped in for Saaho.
Casting of Bollywood actors in Saaho is a 'strategic move' as the makers want it to be a pan-India film. "It is Prabhas's home production and he wants the film to make the maximum impact. Both Sujeeth and he thought that roping in Bollywood actors would give Saaho a more pan-India appeal," the source told mid-day.
Meanwhile, Shraddha clearly cannot wait to be a part of the film. "So, so excited to be a part of the 'Saaho' team & to be working with Prabhas," she tweeted.

Saaho will be shot across Romania, Abu Dhabi, Europe and India. It is scheduled to arrive in screens in 2018.
