All set to create tremors across various film industries in the country, Saaho, which is in the final stages of post-production work, is racing towards the grandest release on August 30. Stunning the whole Indian film industry, the filmmakers are believed to have invested a staggering Rs 350 crore for its completion. No champion in any craft pertaining to filmmaking has been left untried.

A commitment to achieve perfection in every frame till the end is exercised to drive the world’s winning champions from China, America and every nook and corner of the globe into sculpting Sahoo as the biggest ever action film on Indian screen.One cannot just imagine that Rs 80 crore were used to film just an action episode for a duration of 15 to 20 minutes. In the age of blooming VFX, a ration ranging from 30 to 40 per cent graphics may flash on in the film.

But, it is incredible to learn that all other action episodes are absolutely realistic which are also being discussed as something that would dazzle the theatre-goers. Prabhas is believed to have taken a lot of life-threatening risks to impress his ardent fans and the audiences in general. Special experts in driving trucks were employed for certain chase sequences to sharpen the shots where Prabhas demonstrated valour in galloping on the bike in between huge trucks.

Honouring the never-before effort put in for a film, the whole film circuit in northern India was coerced to leave a gap of 15 days before and after the release of Saaho with innumerable theatres all over welcoming the film. The final tally of theatres and screens cutting across the globe, according to the trade pandits, cannot be declared till the minute before the release.

Though Saaho was initially scheduled for release on August 15, only with a view to enriching the VFX effects, the release was postponed to August 30. Every scene was shot in both the languages of Telugu and Hindi. Of course, as per the grapevine, master director of Baahubali, Rajamouli, handled the scissors to trim the final version by 15 to 20 minutes. Sources close to the film confirmed that the duration of the film was fixed at exactly 2 hours 50 minutes against original duration of complete three hours.
