Makers are leaving no stone unturned to make the release of 'Saaho'a grand affair. Telugu superstar Prabhas` multilingual comeback film not is all set to release in IMAX format, besides the regular 2d format.

The IMAX version of 'Saaho' will open not only in India, but all across the globe. The film will be digitally re-mastered in the immersive IMAX format for all markets. Since this is going to Prabhas' first release since 'Baahubali: The Conclusion, the film is highly anticipated. 

While it has become a common practice to release Hollywood films in IMAX screens, the trend is not yet prevalent among Indian filmmakers, particularly the ones in Bollywood. 


'Dhoom 3', 'Gold' and '2.0' have been among few Indian films to have had an IMAX release.

"We are thrilled to partner with UV-Creations and T-Series on the release of Saaho, a pulse-pounding, non-stop action epic that deserves to be experienced in IMAX," Megan Colligan, President of IMAX Entertainment and Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp said.
