The news of Shraddha coming on board for Saaho was confirmed earlier this week when the film's producer told Pune Mirror that the Baaghi actress was the ideal choice for the part. "Shraddha is the perfect choice for the role. We are excited to have her on board with us," he said in the interview.
Fans of Shraddha were on a happy high earlier this month when it was revealed that the actress is in talks with the team of Saaho - dates were still being chalked out. "The filmmakers approached her and she agreed to come on board. But she is yet to sign on the dotted line. Other modalities are still being worked out too," a source close to the movie's team told Deccan Chronicle.
Meanwhile, Neil Nitin Mukesh features as the antagonist in Saaho. Directed by Telugu filmmaker Sujeeth Reddy, Saaho's high-octane action sequences will be directed by internationally recognised stuntman Kenny Bates. Shot across Romania, Abu Dhabi and Europe, Saaho is scheduled to arrive in screens in 2018.
