Prabhas reveals unknown facts about 'Saaho'

Monday, August 12, 2019 • Telugu Comments

Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor have interacted with the media a day after the release of the Trailer for their upcoming movie, 'Saaho'.  Speaking on the occasion, the actor revealed many things about the crazy project.  

"The Trailer has received a tremendous response.  I didn't expect this kind of response.  A pleasantly shocking thing is that Megastar Chiranjeevi garu messaged me soon after watching it.  It was a goosebumps moment for me to talk to him on phone," Prabhas said.

The 'Baahubali' actor quipped that he doesn't know how to play defence shots in cricket.  "I only know how to hit sixers.  The 'sixer' dialogue in the trailer has been lapped up by the audience," Prabhas said.

Is Prabhas pressurized because 'Saaho' is his immediate next after the magnum opus 'Baahubali'?  "Pressure is there on the entire unit.  That's why the entire team has worked tirelessly day in and day out to bring out the best.  It's also a reason for the film's long making process," Prabhas said.

He added that director Sujeeth went out of his way to extract the best output.  "It's not easy for a second-time director like him to put in so much effort.  Sujeeth never felt the pressure even when I and the producers had to.  Technicians such as Srikar Prasad garu, Sabu Cyril garu and Kamalkannan garu have been extraordinary.  We have worked with action choreographers from Hollywood and China as well," Prabhas said.

Prabhas talked about a particular scene in the movie that comes with five different versions.  "It's a very tough scene.  Even such a difficult scene was shot by Sujeeth with ease without making any corrections.  We didn't even go for a reshoot.  He did it on Day 1 and since then, our confidence in him only increased," the actor said.

"The trailer went in for 137 cuts before the final version.  When you watch the movie you will know how hard it is to cut such a trailer.  We have tried new kind of action scenes.  The truck scene in the trailer is not VFX-fied one.  We roped in technicians who worked on 'Transformers' (Hollywood) for this scene," Prabhas revealed.

Talking about his co-star Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhas said that she rehearsed for the fight scenes along with him.  "She is a superb actor.  She has dubbed her voice in Telugu as well.  'Saaho' has got a nice love story in it.  I would call it an action love story.  Shraddha's is a very important role.  We haven't shown her much in the trailer.  The Bollywood audience are eagerly waiting to watch her in an action role after watching her in rom-coms like 'Ashiqui-2'.  She is an intense performer," he signed off.  

Shraddha Kapoor said that Hyderabad is like her second home.  "I have frequented this city over the last two years.  UV Creations has treated me with love.  'Saaho' is the best debut I could have had.  I was thrilled on listening to the story.  And when I was told Prabhas would be the male lead, my thrill only got tripled.  I enjoyed doing those action and romantic portions with him.  I would describe 'Saaho' as India's biggest action thriller," the Bollywood actress said.
