Prabhas-starrer Saaho has changed its release date to avoid a box office clash with Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal and John Abraham's Batla House. The highly-anticipated multilingual action film will now hit cinemas on 30 August instead.

"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 film's producers shared in a statement.
