'Saaho' will be the first film for Prabhas after his magnum opus 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion'. It releases on August 30, and has been shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
A day ahead of its release in India, the first reactions to Saaho have arrived online.
Touted as one of the most expensive action films ever produced in the country, the Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer is generating a mixed early response from those who have seen it in the UAE, where it releases on Thursday.
According to trade analysts, the movie is expected to get a whopping opening, surpassing that of Avengers: Endgame (Rs 53 crore) and Thugs of Hindostan (Rs 52.25 crore).
Film trade analyst Girish Johar told Hindustan Times, “The buzz is very good. Prabhas and Shraddha are among the top actors and the response to the trailer is outstanding.
It is a non-festive but a very wide release in Hindi. A non-holiday opening of Rs 15-20 crore would be fantastic, considering how some Bollywood actors struggle to deliver an opening of even Rs 10 crore.”
Talking about the all-India collection of the movie, he added, “The film should open at roughly Rs 35 crore in Telugu, Rs 15 crore in Tamil and Rs 3-5 crore in Malayalam. The film should open across India at around Rs 60-70 crore in all languages.”
