With such figures, the high-octane action-thriller cruises to a comfortable third position among the top grossers this year, in terms of their box office business on opening day. Ranked after Salman Khan's Bharat and Akshay Kumar's much-loved Mission Mangal, Prabhas' film beat the figures of Dharma Productions' Kalank and Kesari.

Saaho marks the Telugu debut of Shraddha. The film has been released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam, and also stars a bevy of Bollywood actors like Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Mandira Bedi, who all play the antagonists. Other actors in the cast include Arun Vijay, Murli Sharma, Tinnu Anand, Evelyn Sharma, Sharath Lohitashwa, and Lal Vennela Kishore.

The action-thriller is reportedly made on a budget of Rs. 350 crore. Action director Kenny Bates (of Transformers and Italian Job fame) choreographed the action sequences with technicians from Game Of Thrones contributing to the project.

Saaho opened in theatres on 30 August to lukewarm reviews.
