As Prabhas gears up for the release of his upcoming film ‘Saaho’, the star revealed that a lot fo effort has gone into the making of his action-thriller that promises to pack a punch with some must-see action sequences. 

In a media interaction, Prabhas revealed that as he tours the country to promote his film, he is not letting his pre-release jitters come in the way. With a lot of money riding on the film and the superstar himself, the film that is directed by Sujeeth has been simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi. 

It is also dubbed in Tamil and Malayalam and all the versions will hit the screens worldwide on the same day. 

On the work put in to make Saaho, Prabhas revealed, “For one action scene, the producers spent about Rs 75 crore. World’s best technicians, Kenny Bates and Peng Zhang (Hollywood stunt directors), many masters from India and a lot of planning went into making this film.”

He added, “Shraddha Kapoor and I did a lot of training for the film. More than the actors, it was the technical crew that did a lot of planning. Kenny Bates, who did Transformers and Italian Job, came to Hyderabad five times and they went to Dubai for the locations. And 40 people from Hollywood, including technicians who did Game of Thrones and the best truck drivers of Transformers, have worked on this film. The truck sliding you see (in the trailer) is not CGI. It is real. The truck, sliding at 40/50 KMPH speed, couldn’t stop and It banged the footpath. There are a lot of real stunts in the film.”

The film is led by Prabhas and includes actors Shraddha Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Vennela Kishore, Murali Sharma and Arun Vijay among others. 

It is scheduled for release on August 30. Meanwhile, it has already earned Rs 320 crore before its release.
