Prabhas is currently the top actor in India and reason for that is the monstrous success of Baahubali 2. The film has earned more than INR 1200 crores and stands at the top of the list in terms of collections in Indian cinema. Prabhas is now being offered films in Bollywood by top filmmakers and is the most sought after actor. Buzz was that Karan Johar was going to launch him in Bollywood with a top director. But that was not a concrete piece of information. Neither Prabhas nor Karan Johar confirmed this news.
Prabhas is currently is on a vacation with his family, and will start working on his upcoming film with Sujeeth which is titled Saaho after he is back from the vacation. The teaser of the film was released along with Baahubali 2 on April 28th, 2017. The teaser broke some records online after the release on social media and the expectations are sky high on Saaho.
The makers were searching for a leading lady for Saaho, which is yet to be finalised. Saaho was offered to top actresses in Bollywood but for unknown reasons was not taken up by many. Rumours are doing rounds that Shraddha Kapoor had quoted a hefty amount for the film because of which the makers had to back-out. Disha Patani, who started her career in Telugu films with Loafer alongside Varun Tej, was offered Sahoo too but the actress didn’t express interest in taking up the film.
Alia Bhatt had replied to a question by a fan on social media that she would love to work with Prabhas, and this led to speculations that Alia might be roped in for Sahoo. But that did not materialise too. Katrina Kaif joined the bandwagon too and rumour mills churned out her name too. But that didn’t materialise as well.
Latest buzz is that Duvvada Jagannadham actress Pooja Hegde has been finalised for Saaho and the actress has given her go ahead for the film. An official confirmation is expected soon regarding this.
