They further added, “Saaho is Prabhas’s first film being shot in Hindi and so it’s very special for all of us. It is a highly ambitious project and there will be some really high-octane action scenes in the film.”
Saaho, which is Prabhas’ ambitious hi-tech action drama, has already kick-started the shoot and it is being shot in three languages – Hindi, Tamil and Telugu – simultaneously. A massive set has been erected for Saaho in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad.
