According to a leading daily, Bollywood star Jackie Shroff has been roped into play a pivotal role in the eagerly-awaited ‘Saaho’. If all goes as planned, the veteran will be seen playing a suave baddie in this Prabhas starrer. Confirming this, a source told the daily that Jackie’s character will be quite different from the ones played by Neil Nitin Mukesh and Chunky Pandey.
“Saaho will have three grey characters and interestingly, all of them are from Bollywood. While Chunky Pandey’s character is dark, Jackie’s character is more suave and cool while retaining its negative streak. Neil Nitin will be seen as a tech-savvy nerd. The film’s shoot has already commenced in Hyderabad, Jackie will join the unit next week,” added the source.
Confirming that he will be a part of ‘Saaho’, Jackie said that he considers Prabhas to be one of the best action stars in the country.
“I am happy to be a part of Saaho with Prabhas, who is one of the biggest actors in India at the moment. It’s wonderful to know that he trusts me and thinks I can pull off this kind of a role. I have seen both the Baahubalis and loved them,” he added.
Well, we are happy for the veteran and hope that he makes a solid impact with his bad guy act in ‘Saaho’.
In case you did not know, ‘Saaho’ is touted to be an action-thriller and has been directed by Sujeeth. Featuring Prabhas in a new avatar, it will hit screens in 2018.
