After the superhit Baahubali, actor Prabhas will start working on is Sujeeth’s directorial “Saaho”.
According to reports, the makers of Prabhas’ upcoming film “Saaho” have found their villian in Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh.
Neil had earlier played negative characters in “Players” (2012), “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” (2015) and “Wazir” (2016). In “Saaho”, his part is the second most important after Prabhas, say sources.
A source confirmed the news & told that, “After Prabhas, Neil was the first artiste to be signed for Saaho. Also, so far, he’s the only member of the cast besides Prabhas. He has a powerful role.”
Given the importance of a villain in the plot of a drama, the makers of Saaho wanted someone who would do justice to the role. “Baahubali made everyone aware how important it is to balance out the moral conflict. Prabhas’ Baahubali act would have fallen flat if Rana’s (Rana Daggubati) madness as Bhallal did not spread itself out throughout the plot,” the source also added.
The film is made in Telugu and Hindi and will also be dubbed in Tamil and Malayalam. Prabhas is currently on the US tour and will start shooting from the first week of July and before he starts shooting for the film the actor has decided to better his Hindi speaking skills.
The film is set to be Shot in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, United States and Europe. Saaho is an action thriller film, which is written and directed by Sujeeth and produced by V Vamsi Krishna Reddy and Pramod under the banner UV Creations.
There were reports that actresses like Katrina Kaif, Shraddha Kapoor & Anushka Shetty were considered to play the female lead but no name has been confirmed till now.
The film is scheduled for a release in the first half of 2018.
