If you are an avid movie watcher, you must be wondering what is the salary of Prabhas in Saho. This upcoming film has been made on a huge budget, and is expected to make between Rs 250 and 300 crore. Prabhas, who has taken almost 20% cut in his pay, has responded to the rumours of Rs 100 crore, saying that he was not being paid that much.
Salary of Prabhas in Saaho
The hugely-anticipated Telugu action film, Saaho, will be releasing on August 30. Prabhas earned unprecedented success with the Baahubali franchise, which has made a fortune at the box office in India. While the actor earned a handsome paycheck for the Baahubali films, he has reportedly taken a pay cut of nearly 20% to appear in his next film.
The film is reportedly bringing in Rs 100 crores for Prabhas. While most Tollywood actors earn between 25 and 30 Cr, Prabhas has surpassed his peers in terms of money. The Telugu film is a blockbuster and will take away half the pre-release business from Bollywood’s top actors. The star is also set to make his Telugu debut with the film.
Following the success of Baahubali, Prabhas was approached by numerous big-budget films. The Baahubali series catapulted him to national fame in a short span of time. Although his follow-up film, Saaho, didn’t do as well, Prabhas has already signed multiple big-budget films and continues to garner millions of fans. In short, he’s having the best time of his career.
Budget for all three films
Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor, and Rajinikanth starrer Saaho will star in the multilingual action drama, which will have a budget of over Rs 300 crore. The film is Prabhas’ Hindi debut, while Kapoor’s first foray into South Indian cinema. The movie will have a big production budget, and the budget is estimated to be around Rs 350 crore.
The film is a good example of what happens when you throw a bloated budget at a script that isn’t very good. Despite its cheesy plot and uninspiring performance, Saaho’s budget allows for some very impressive stunts. This is particularly evident in the opening sequence, where the film’s stuntmen perform incredible stunts to thrill the audience.
The film’s plot revolves around a sniper who attempts to kill Saaho. Amritha tracks Saaho by pretending to be a double agent for Ashok, and falls in love with him. Meanwhile, Ashok chases Saaho, while a sniper and police chase him. A person in a jetpack also chases him and steals all the money from Devraj’s lockers.
Challenges of being a pan-Indian star
A Pan-Indian star may be the dream of any religious movie-goer, but reality is different. In today’s world, you have too many options. People can change movies in a minute, or switch actors for an entire decade. It’s not unusual to see a South Indian star headline a Bollywood film. That doesn’t mean he can’t make it. But he has to be able to cross all cultural boundaries to get the best roles.
The term ‘pan India’ was born with the Baahubali franchise, which became Prabhas’s breakout hit. Soon after, south Indian film-makers shifted to pan-Indian cinema, releasing their films in more than one language to attract audiences from all across the country. But how does Prabhas deal with these differences? Here are some of the challenges. The most difficult challenge is choosing the right pan-India script.
Shraddha Kapoor making her Telugu debut in Saaho
Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor is making her Telugu debut in the upcoming film Saaho, directed by Sujeeth. The film stars Prabhas in the lead role, and will have high-octane action sequences and stunts. The film has been in production for over a year, and the teaser has already created quite a buzz on social media. Prabhas was offered the film long before the Baahubali phenomenon. Other Bollywood veteran actors in the film include Chunky and Mandira Bedi. It will release in Telugu on August 15, 2019.
The film is based on the life of crime branch police officer Sanjiv Kumar and is directed by Sujeeth Srinivasan. Shraddha Kapoor’s Telugu debut will be a memorable one, and it is set to be one of the best films of the year. Prabhas and Shraddha have been working together for over two years, so they’re clearly a good match.
