After the humongous success of Baahubali, Prabhas became a household name across the country and with Saaho, the actor is set to take his stardom to a new level. In the last month, the makers dropped the teaser and it just made our wait harder for the film.
Now, the cinematographer of the film, Madhie has revealed a piece of information, which will literally blow your mind.
He said the makers have spent a whopping amount of Rs 70 crore on an 8-minute action sequence which was featured on Prabhas. This is the highest ever budget spent on a single scene in the history of Indian cinema.
Talking about Saaho, which is shot in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, is made on a whopping budget of Rs 300 crore.
Apart from Prabhas, the film features many Bollywood stars like Shraddha Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Arun Vijay and Mahesh Manjrekar. Prabhas is reportedly playing the character of a spy and will be seen donning a trench court most of the time and hiding his face in the film. Saaho is directed by Sujeeth, who previously helmed Run Raja Run.
Interestingly, director Sujeeth had offered Saaho way before Baahubali.
During a media interaction, Sujeeth said, "I had the script of Saaho, which was ready before Baahubali. I narrated him the story and he loved it." He further said, "I did not feel the pressure to direct a big star like Prabhas. He has faith in me and my work and that matters the most to me. Also, the producers and the team members showed confidence in me. But now that the film is gearing for release in few months, I can feel the pressure."
