Arun Vijay joins sets of Prabhas Saaho, in Abu Dubai
Prabhas’ upcoming action flick Saaho is currently being shot in Abu Dhabi. The film, being directed by Sujeeth, stars Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff and Mandira Bedi in important roles. Tamil actor Arun Vijay also plays a key role and he joined the sets on Monday in Abu Dhabi, where he wrapped up his portion on Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam last week.
“Joined the sets of Saaho,” tweeted Arun Vijay and shared a few pictures of a car fitted with camera rigs for an action sequence. Meanwhile, if the industry grapevine is anything to go by, a whopping Rs 90 crore is being spent on the action sequences in this schedule alone. After canning important sequences in Hyderabad, the next few schedules of Saaho will take place across Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Romania, where most of the film’s high-octane action scenes will be shot. One of the highlight of the action scenes will be the one that will be shot on the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa. The last film that was shot there was Fast Five of the Fast and Furious franchise.
Neil Mukesh has been roped in as the antagonist and he had said in one of his interviews that it will the biggest action film this country would have ever seen. Neil had said, “Saaho is a larger-than-life film and, post Baahubali, the entire nation is rooting for Prabhas. And where there is a mega hero, there will always be a mega villain too. My character has many shades like every other character in the film. It’s quite an exciting project, Sujeeth has a great vision. Saaho will be the biggest action film of 2018.” After playing a father and son in Baahubali franchise, Prabhas will be seen in an action avatar in Saaho, and his clean-shaven look has already gone viral. Saaho, which marks the southern debut of Shraddha Kapoor, has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and cinematography by Madhie, whose work in Ghazi was widely spoken about.
