Prabhas's fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Sahoo, being the rebel star's first release since his magnum opus, Bahubali. The film has state of the art VFX which not only inflated its budget but was also delaying its release.
While the makers of the film had recently announced that it would be released on Independence Day 2019, it is learned that the producers initially wanted to announce the release date only after wrapping up all production works. It was on the advice of Bollywood filmmaker, Karan Johar, who had presented Bahubali, that the producers announced the release date for Sahoo as August 15th, 2019.
Since the makers of Sahoo wanted to release the film in Hindi and other languages simultaneously, Karan Johar had advised them to announce the release date at the earliest and ditch their lethargic attitude. He asked the makers to announce the release date so that other filmmakers could plan their releases around that date as Hindi movies generally tend to do well during holidays such as Independence Day, Eid, Diwali, Christmas and Republic Day.
Prabhas even made an appearance on Karan Johar's talk show, Koffee with Karan recently.
