It came to light recently that Shraddha Kapoor has been zeroed in as the female lead for the Prabhas starrer-‘Saaho’. The actress finally took to Twitter, to confirm the news. This film marks Shraddha’s first trilingual film. Taking to the microblogging platform, Shraddha said that she was really excited to be part of ‘Saaho’ and to be working with Prabhas. She tweeted, “So so excited to be a part of the ‘Saaho’ team & to be working with Prabhas!!! Woohoo.” Apart from Shraddha, ‘Saaho’ also stars Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, who has already begun shooting for the upcoming film.
The buzz around Prabhas’s next film is very high. The film has been in news since the day it was announced. The latest was about a lavish spread Prabhas and the team had laid out for Shraddha on the first day of the shoot. The Bollywood actor was pleasantly surprised, it was reported. Now, it has come to light that she too has a surprise in store for the Baahubali star.
According to a report in DNA, the Haseena actor binge watched all the previous films of Prabhas and surprised him with her know-how about his movies. That certainly must have come as a pleasant surprise for Prabhas too. Nice way of bonding between the stars, we’d say.
Saaho is said to be an action-packed thriller, directed by Sujeeth Reddy. The makers say that viewers will see a very different Prabhas in the film. This should be true particularly for the pan-India audience, who ‘discovered’ him with Baahubali. Shraddha, on her part, made an entry into the team after much consideration. It was speculated that the sweetheart of Telugu films, Anushka Shetty, would feature as Prabhas’ love interest. However, given her prior commitment to a big Tamil film, the actress could not give her dates for Saaho. Shraddha was zeroed much later. Her remuneration too was a topic of discussion as she came on-board after a deal of Rs 5 crore was agreed upon.
According to various reports, post-Baahubali, Prabhas demands Rs 35 crore per film.
Several reports have suggested that Shraddha will be seen playing a double role in Saaho. One of her characters is to be adventurous and gutsy while the other one is said to be timid and shy. The movie is all set to hit the theatres in 2018
