Saaho has been joined by Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor's college comedy Chhichhore this Friday. Last week, Saaho opened to middling reviews on Friday and has already dealt with its fair share of criticism. French director Jerome Salle accused the makers of Saaho of copying his film Largo Winch just days after Lisa Ray alleged them of plagiarising illustrator Shilo Shiv Suleman's work.
