- Saaho is Prabhas' first film after Baahubali 2
- Directed by Sujeeth, Saaho will be an action thriller
- Saaho will release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil next year
Saaho, an action thriller, will be a major shift in genre for Prabhas, who headlined Baahubali. Prabhas was committed himself entirely to Rajamouli's film for five years and confessed to experiencing withdrawal symptoms once the project wrapped. "It is always difficult to move on from something that you have been associated with for this long. In these five years, Baahubali has not been a part of my life, it has been my life. I have been more of Baahubali than my own self in these years," Prabhas told PTI a month after Baahubali 2 released. The blockbuster movie redefined history scoring over Rs 1500 crores at the box office.
Prabhas' Saaho has cast Neil Nitin Mukesh as the antagonist. The director is looking forward to shoot major action sequences in Mumbai while Saaho will also be extensively filmed in Abu Dhabi and Europe. Stuntman Kenny Bates, who has films like Die Hard and Transformers on his resume, has been roped in to direct the action sequences in the film. "The scale on which it is being made, a major budget will be spent on some extravagant action scenes. Although it will be a commercial outing, we are attempting something new and I would like to keep that as a surprise element," the director told IANS.
