Baahubali star Prabhas is leaving no stone unturned to get into the skin of the character for his upcoming big-budget film, Saaho. The makers of Saaho are currently on their 50 days schedule in Dubai. The makers are shooting for a crucial action sequence in Abu Dhabi. While every on-sets picture is leaving us excited to know what’s in the store for us, the latest update about the film is sure to leave you amazed.
While talking to the UAE media recently, the Baahubali actor revealed that they crashed 37 cars and a few trucks for an action sequence. Now, this is huge and only proves that makers are making sure to bring the best action in Saaho.
He said, “We had a plan and we went to action director Kenny Bates two years back. Kenny came to Abu Dhabi for recce and he loved the location. He wanted to shoot everything live. Almost 90 percent of whatever that we are going to show on screen is real. He wanted to show the real cars. He wanted the real cars to fly.”
Talking more about the action sequences in Saaho, Prabhas further said, “We wanted everything real instead of going for CGI as it gives a real impact. Generally, you have 70 percent CG and 30 percent real but over here in Abu Dhabi, we opted for a more real shoot. This will be something that no one has seen before,” said Prabhas while talking to the UAE media in Abu Dhabi.”
Saaho will bring to the big screen an ensemble star cast of Prabhas, Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff, Mandira Bedi, Mahesh Manjrekar and Chunky Pandey.
