Baahubali actor Prabhas has started shooting for his next – Sahoo – which is the first film for him after the magnum opus Baahubali 2. Baahubali 2 brought a huge following for Prabhas PAN India and is now a heartthrob of many. Touted to be an action-thriller, Sahoo will have Prabhas in a never-seen-before avatar and is now being much spoken about.
After Baahubali, Sahoo will have Anushka Shetty pair up with Prabhas which will be the fourth time for the pair including both the parts of Baahubali. Other than Baahubali, Prabhas and Anushka earlier appeared together in Mirchi and Billa.
