Saaho: Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor's action film will now clash with Sushant Singh Rajput's Chhichhore
Last week, the makers of Saaho issued a statement that the film will be pushed to 30 August in order to avoid competition from Mission Mangal and Batla House on 15 August.
Prabhas-starrer Saaho has altered its release date to avoid a box office clash with Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal and John Abraham's Batla House. The multilingual action film, also featuring Shraddha Kapoor, will now hit cinemas on 30 August instead, and will clash with Sushant Singh Rajput and Shradhha's upcoming comedy Chhichhore.
"We want to bring the best to the audience. For bringing finesse to the action sequences, we need some more time. Although we are shifting the date from Independence Day but we want to stick to the month of independence and patriotism with Saaho. We are dedicated to bringing the biggest movie on the largest scale," a spokesperson of Saaho shared in a statement earlier.
