Saaho: Morning shows in North India gets canceled
Director Sujeeth’s Saaho starring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles released worldwide in a grand manner today (August 30). The film released in four languages namely Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, and Malayalam.
While the Tamil and Telugu prints arrived on time, several screens with 2K projection had to cancel the show as the film’s print didn’t arrive on time. Also, several theatres in North India suffered the same fate.
In Jharkhand capital Ranchi, the Hindi print failed to reach the theatres on time, hence the theatre owners were forced to return the money for angry fans. A distributor on the condition of anonymity lashed out at the makers.
He said that the Hindi theatres were treated in a step brotherly way. He said, “All deliveries of digital and physical prints of Saaho were done in Telugu and Tamil in time. The delivery of the Hindi version was delayed with disastrous results in several parts of North India. We had to refund ticket money to hundreds of angry disappointed patrons. Why treat Hindi audiences with so much contempt?”
