Saaho first look: Makers tease with Hollywood standard action
Chennai : The makers of upcoming multilingual action drama "Saaho" on Tuesday teased audiences with a special making video on the occasion of Prabhass birthday.
The video gives a glimpse of the lavish budget the makers have spent on action, which will be one of the highlights of the film.
The one and a half minute video shows the prep that has gone into choreographing the action sequences under the supervision of international stuntman Kenny Bates in Abu Dhabi where the team extensively shot for 30 days with over 400 crew members.
From bike chases to car and truck crashes, it appears like the team has pushed the envelope with respect to action.
We also get a quick glimpse of Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh in the video, which has been released as a birthday treat for Prabhas's fans.
Towards the end of the video, we see Prabhas walking out of a building in slow motion in an uber stylish avatar. Cut to the next shot, we see him zooming on a bike.
In his chat with IANS last year, director Sujeeth revealed that a major chunk of the film's budget will be spent on action.
"The scale on which it is being made, a major budget will be spent on some extravagant action scenes. Although it will be a commercial outing, we are attempting something new and I would like to keep that as a surprise element," Sujeeth had said.
Apart from Abu Dhabi, the film has also been shot across major locales in Europe.
The movie has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. While Sabu Cyril will take care of the production design, Madhie will crank the camera.
The film, being shot in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi, also stars Arun Vijay, Jackie Shroff, Mahesh Manjrekar, Chunky Pandey and Mandira Bedi in key roles.
A UV Creations production, "Saaho" is produced by Vamsi, Pramod and Vikram on a whopping budget of Rs 150 crore.
