Hyderabad: While there has been severe outrage over Saaho’s poor performance at the box office from distressed fans, the fact about the movie’s massive budget of Rs 350 crores will not reduce the interest of the average filmgoer.
Prabhas has shared a behind the scenes clip giving his fans a sneak-peak into the action sequences. As we know, the team has made a massive factory to shoot the high-octane scenes. A total of 40 cars and four trucks were hired to shoot a scene in Abu Dhabi. “One of the action sequences was named a 100 Men sequence, in which 100 people were engaged in a fighting scene in the movie. The most challenging part was to shoot in Abu Dhabi bearing the scorching heat at 48 degrees of day temperature,” director Sujeeth said.
The director has roped in top-notch Hollywood stuntman Peng Zhang and Bob Brown to shoot the scenes. The film also had important technical crew such as Kamal Kannan, Maddie and Sabu Cyril. Although the drama portion was wrapped up in 50 to 60 days, the action element has taken significant time for the makers to execute the script.
The movie features Shraddha Kapoor, Jackie Shroff as the don, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi and Chunky Pandey among others. Saaho has so far raked in a whopping Rs 450 crores across India and elsewhere.
