Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho is on fans and audiences’ watchlist ever since the makers launched its’ trailer. A high-octane action thriller, Saaho revolves around the journey of an undercover cop, played by Prabhas and his partner, Shraddha Kapoor, a crime branch investigating officer and their covert operation to uncover the mystery behind a Rs 2000 crore robbery in Mumbai.
An ensemble seasoned cast that includes the likes of Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Mahesh Manjrekar, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Jackie Shroff play villainous characters in the film; the trailer of which has set new viewership records ever since its release.
In a recent interaction with film critic Anupama Chopra, Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor shared how they brought the ‘cool swagger’ in every frame of the Saaho trailer.
While Shraddha mentioned that Prabhas was naturally a very cool person off-screen, result of which the effortlessness of swag comes very naturally to him.
On being asked if ‘he( Prabhas) has to work hard to be cool, what does it take to bring that level of swagger on-screen’, Prabhas answered, “I don’t know….technicians want a little swag… then we were doing that song ‘ Enni Soni’, ( it is a big hit) she was like swag, swag, get the attitude. I was like ok, I ll give you one more, that is a little too much, she then said, so…”
Prabhas also mentioned that the mechanics is very different while shooting for a commercial film.
Quoting filmmaker SS Rajamouli, Chopra said that Prabhas “is so lazy that he won’t even get married because that is too much work”. Further questioning that ” how does someone as shy and lazy as you, become a superstar?”
Prabhas responded, “Lazy, shy and can’t meet people. So 3 problems I have. Even when I think about it, why I am I in this field, am I right or wrong. But, you know luckily Baahubali hapened, so I don’t have a chance.”
He also mentioned that before every release, he asks his friends to only wake him up if the film is a blockbuster. Reminiscing on Baahubali‘s theatrical release, the megastar shared anecdotes of the time.
Directed by Sujeeth, and produced by UV Creations and T-series, Saaho is slated to release on 30 August 2019 in four languages.
