On Telugu actor Prabhas's 38th birthday, the makers of Sujeeth's trilingual action thriller Saaho released the film's first look.
On the occasion of Telugu actor Prabhas' 38th birthday, the makers of Sujeeth's trilingual action thriller Saaho released the film's first look.
In the still, Prabhas is seen walking on a street in what looks like a foreign locale. The background is full of fog but certain details of the location hint at its foreign setting. The actor is decked up in black from head to toe, teaming a black overcoat with black trousers. He covers the lower half of his face with a black scarf as his kohl-laden eyes stare suspiciously, yet menacingly, into the camera.
Saaho is Prabhas' first outing since the mega blockbuster, SS Rajamouli's war epic Baahubali 2: The Conclusion earlier this year. Saaho also stars Shraddha Kapoor (marking her south cinema debut) opposite Prabhas. Neil Nitin Mukesh will play the chief antagonist and will be seen leading a brigade of villains that include his fellow Bollywood actors Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey, Tinnu Anand, Mahesh Manjrekar and Mandira Bedi.
The film also stars Tamil actor and playback singer Arun Vijay and Malayalam actor Lal. It is co-produced by UV Creations and Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. It will be simultaneously released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu and is slated to release sometime in 2018.
Jaume Collet-Serra, who has directed Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming Jungle Cruise, is helming Black Adam.
With Maharani and Madam Chief Minister, Subhash Kapoor seems determined to unearth the heroes in women that the public has already evaluated one way or the other. While these are interesting stories to explore, it also indicates a tactical shift, a clear-up act of his image that continues to trail him.
The BAFTAs, scheduled to be held on 6 June, will not feature the usual Fellowship Prize and Special Award categories
