Shades of Saaho Chapter 2: Prabhas and Shraddha indulge in heavy-duty action

With Saaho, Prabhas makes a triumphant return to the silver screen post the mega success of 2017’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. A new teaser from the upcoming film has been released on the occasion of female lead Shraddha Kapoor’s birthday.

The roughly one-minute-long clip is an extensive behind-the-scenes look at the actioner. The official account of the movie posted the teaser link with the caption, “Wishing our #Saaho star @ShraddhaKapoor a very Happy Birthday. Here’s presenting the much awaited #ShadesofSaaho2 showcasing mind-boggling behind the scenes action! #Prabhas @sujeethsign @UV_Creations @TSeries @itsBhushanKumar.”

The clip focuses on the gunfight scenes that are going to be employed in the movie. We also get a glimpse of the state-of-the-art sets, visual effects, equipment, stuntwork and props.

Saaho is reportedly even more expensive than the Baahubali films with a budget of Rs 300 crore and clearly, the money has been spent quite liberally on the technical aspects of the film. There is a shot of a man, probably an extra, firing a huge minigun that appears to be lifted out of a Hollywood summer blockbuster.

The plot details for Saaho are scarce as yet, but there appears to be lots of bad guys with guns, and a chopper also makes an appearance, albeit in an indoor setting with a blue screen. Indeed, the movie appears to be shot inside a huge studio. By all this, we can glean that Saaho is going to be huge in scale, in the Fast and Furious fashion.
