In 2017, actor Prabhas became the latest heartthrob when his highly ambitious ‘Baahubali 2’ opened to a thunderous response at the box office and received rave reviews along the way. In the epic-drama, T-town’s ‘Darling’ essayed a double role and gave strong proof of his abilities as a performer. With ‘Baahubali 2’ in the rearview mirror, Prabhas is working on ‘Saaho’. The film is touted to be an action-thriller and is being directed by Sujeeth. It has already created quite a buzz amongst fans courtesy its ripping poster and is bound to be one of the biggest releases of the year. Now, it seems that the buzz surrounding the film is going to reach new heights. According to a leading daily, Prabhas will be seen playing a cop in ‘Saaho’ and his character will have shades of grey to it. Confirming this, a source said that ‘Saaho’ is essentially a chor-police story and will keep the audience guessing right till the end.
“The script of Saaho is essentially a chor-police drama where all the characters are grey. It’s true that Prabhas plays a cop in the film. However, the story is such that the audience will keep guessing until the end whether his character is an honest officer or a thief under the guise of a cop,” added the source.
Interestingly, Shraddha Kapoor—who is making her Tollywood debut with ‘Saaho’—will be seen in a totally different avatar here. Talking about her role, a source said that the ‘Baaghi’ girl’s character is going to be a far cry from the lively roles she has done in Bollywood.
“Shraddha’s character is a far cry from the bubbly roles she has essayed so far,” added the source.
Besides Shraddha-Prabhas, ‘Saaho’ also features Neil Nitin Mukesh in the lead. He will be playing the antagonist in what is the first Telugu film of his career.
