For the next few days, it is going to be all Baahubali related stuff that’s going to be heard across the nation. The mammoth film is releasing tomorrow with humongous fanfare and the earnings from the pre-release business of Baahubali 2 in the US had already touched $3 million. Industry statisticians are making predictions that Baahubali 2 will be the first Indian film to make it to the INR 1000 crore mark. And going by the pre-release business of the film, that monstrous number doesn’t seem too far away.
Prabhas has become a sensation in India post-Baahubali and truly deserves all the attention and love he is getting currently. To cash in on the momentum of Baahubali, the producers of Prabhas’s next, titled Saaho, had plans to release the teaser attaching it to the Baahubali 2. But what was in store for UV creations, the producers of Saaho, was totally unexpected.
The teaser got leaked online and was viewed by many of the netizens before the producers could take any action. Soon it became a trending news on social media and things were getting out of control. To avoid any further damage, the producers decide to make few changes in the plan and now the teaser of Prabhas’s Saaho will officially release on the eve of the release of Baahubali 2 at 5:30 PM.

“For our beloved audience, we are bringing you the #SaahoTeaser tomorrow! Get ready to have your mind blown…,” posted the production house on their social networking page.
Piracy and leakage of footage before release have been hitting the Indian film industries very hard and have resulted in huge damages to filmmakers.
