Prabhas talks about Saaho, his pan-Indian appeal and why he’s indebted to SS Rajamouli forever.
There is no stopping Prabhas after the stupendous success of the Baahubali franchise. Thanks to the box-office collections, he’s a force to be reckoned with. While we hear Saaho has earned Rs 320 crore even before its release, we chat with Prabhas, as he discusses the film, his Chennai connection and more.
Talking about his upcoming film 'Saaho', actor Prabhas said, "Baahubali had a lot of actors... whereas, in Saaho, I'm the only one shouldering the film. After Baahubali, I realised it's difficult to impress the audience." He further said that unlike 'Baahubali', 'Saaho' is a contemporary film which has rich production values. "Hopefully, Saaho will satisfy my Baahubali fans," he added.
Prabhas went on saying, "I am an avid foodie, but I had to turn a vegetarian for Saaho. During Baahubali, I ate a lot of meat to put on muscle weight." He even spoke about Shraddha Kapoor saying that She’s dedicated and a great dancer. As they were expecting to finish Saaho in a year, but it required more time, she was patient enough and extended her complete support throughout.
'Saaho’ is all set to hit theatres on August 30 and if the speculations are anything to go by, it will cross 500 crore mark with ease in the very first week.
