Prabhas is currently shooting for his multi-lingual action thriller Saaho. Post the success of Baahubali, his fan following has transcended the boundaries of Telugu cinema. He has become an icon and a phenomenon. No wonder then, fans have pinned huge hopes from his next film. The fact that he is learning Hindi for the film and simultaneously making it in three languages says how much he is also under pressure to impress his audience. But his co-star Neil Nitin Mukesh feels that neither the superstar nor does his fans have any reason to worry.
Speaking to media at an event last evening, Neil was quizzed about what Saaho is all about and he said that it is a huge project and he was honoured to be part of it. “It is a mammoth film and its a pleasure as well as an honour to be part of Saaho along with Prabhas.” Talking about the film’s script he said, “We are shooting the film currently and let me tell you that the script is amazing. It has lot of entertainment.”
Acknowledging the expectations that audience have from a Prabhas film, especially his first post Baahubali, Neil said, “Saaho will offer everything that the and masses are expecting after a film like Baahubali. No one will be disappointed. Wait for it!” And with that, our wait for the film has only become more difficult. Saaho was supposed to release this year, but India.com exclusively learnt that the film may not be ready on time to hit screens this year and therefore will look at the auspicious occasion of Sankranthi 2019 for this Prabhas – Shraddha Kapoor starrer.
Meanwhile, Prabhas is slated to start work on his next film, an out and out love story with JIL fame director Radha Krishna Kumar. UV Creations will bankroll this one and the leading lady is yet to be finalised with Pooja Hegde’s name in the running for this one.
