After magnum opus, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Prabhas has geared up for another big budget film, Saaho. The film also stars Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor in an important role and it marks her debut in Telugu cinema. Shraddha Kapoor has been omnipresent these days, courtesy her versatile line up of films. The actress has begun with the promotions of Batti Gul Meter Chalu and is celebrating the success of her recently released film, Stree. Shraddha had recently taken off to Hyderabad for the next schedule of Saaho. The actress has been shooting for the film in portions since last year.
Recently, Shraddha Kapoor spoke at length about going through challenges while shooting for the same scene in two different languages-Hindi and Telugu. At the success meet of Stree, Shraddha Kapoor said, “Saaho is still being shaped up, we are still shooting for it…It is one of my films that I’m shooting in small parts. We started shooting for it last year and half we started this year…so its a spread out and that’s a kind of film it is. It needs a lot of set work, a lot of location changes, and in that sense, it is pretty a large film.”
She further added, “I’m speaking in Telugu and in Hindi..I’m memorizing all my lines and not taking any prompting. It takes a very long time to memorize Telugu lines.”
When asked about learning a new language, Shraddha said, “My director would constantly sit with me and we would prep for it. It is so fascinating to speak in another language. It was a very fun experience for me. we would shoot in Hindi or Telugu, it depends on what the scene is and then we would shoot in Telugu as well. It is a lot of fun and challenging as it is a new language… Sometimes after the scene is done and I go to bed, there would be times when there are dialogues going into my head. Its actually like shooting two films into one film.”
