For the very first time, Shraddha Kapoor is venturing into Telugu films with Prabhas' Saaho. Working with Prabhas for the first time, Shraddha shared her experience of working with the superstar and said: "He is such a gentleman, and an amazing human being. I think it translates in his energy on set and is so inspiring for everybody," IANS quoted the actress saying. Saaho is an action-thriller and is directed by Telugu filmmaker Sujeeth Reddy. This is Prabhas' first film in five years after S S Rajamouli's two-part epic series Baahubali. Saaho, simultaneously being shot in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, will mark the actor's first film in Hindi.
The inclusion of Shraddha Kapoor in the cast of Saaho was announced in August last year, after which the actress tweeted about her level of excitement. After starting shooting for Saaho, Prabhas decided to treat Shraddha to lip-smacking Hyderabadi delicacies on one of the days.
