Saaho box office: Prabhas – Shraddha Kapoor’s film takes the second spot globally, overtakes The Lion King

Saaho is burning the box office and how. The film is not only a pan-India success but roaring at the global box-office too. Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s film has made 41 million dollars at the worldwide box-office till September 1, 2019. It is second only to another entertaining action flick, Fast and Furious Presents – Hobbs And Shaw. The film takes the top spot with 45 million dollars. In Saaho, Prabhas plays Siddharth Nandan/Saaho who is the illegitimate son of a tycoon. After the death of his father in mysterious circumstances, he is forced to track down the killers and save his business empire. The film is apparently quite similar to Jerome Salle’s Largo Winch and he has tweeted about it. It seems Trivikram Srinivas’ Agnyaathavaasi was also inspired by that film. Anyways, director Sujeeth seems to have delivered a blockbuster despite all the negative reviews.

The film has overtaken The Lion King and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood that stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo Di Caprio. BollywoodLife in its review wrote, “Prabhas powers the film in every frame. His charm grows on you scene by scene. He makes even the bland lines sound good. And he looks hot as hell in some scenes. Performance-wise, Chunky Pandey does well as the menacing Devraj. Mandira Bedi makes an impact in her little screen time. Shraddha Kapoor looks like a dream but her chemistry with Prabhas is uneven. Ghibran is another hero of the film. His BGM is outstanding.” The film has made over Rs 300 crore at the global box-office.
