Here’s How Prabhas’ Saaho Recovered Its Production Cost Even With Disaster Talk

by Bellamkonda

Tollywood: One cannot deny the fact Prabhas is one of the most sought after actors in Tollywood. He made his debut in Tollywood with ‘Raghavendra’ film but it turned out to be a huge disaster.  He became a popular star amongst the audience with few hits like- Chatrapathi, Varsham, Mirchi, and a few. Prabhas featured Baahubali fantasy drama which was directed by Rajamouli which changed his fate in the entertainment industry. It’s a known fact that Baahubali turned out to be a huge money-spinner at the box office. Baahubali is the first film to enter into the Rs 1000 cr club. It was a rare feat by our dearest actor Prabhas.

Post Baahubali, Prabhas was featured in ‘Saaho’, the film was released with amid expectations but it was rejected by the audience and critics at the box office. The film was made on a lavish budget of Rs 400 cr plus. Did you know, how many days it took makes to recover production cost. If reports are to be believed, The makers of the movie have recovered the production cost in just five days.

You may ask, how? The film was released across 10,000 screens in India alone paired with a big reach in the world cinema circuit. The makers of Saaho have asked other filmmakers to shift their release date and they have allowed Saaho alone to run in theatres for a month. The biggest reason for the response is Prabhas’ widespread popularity and the massive scale of the film’s release.

Apart from Prabhas, Saaho also starred Shraddha Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay, Murali Sharma, amongst others.

On the career front, Prabhas will next be seen in ‘Radhe Shyam’ under the direction of Radhe Krishna who rose to fame with ‘Jilla’. Pooja Hegde will be seen as the female lead alongside him. Prabhas tasted failure with ‘Saaho’ and he has pinned huge hopes on ‘Radhe Shyam’. Hope, the film creates some wonders at the box office. Watch this space for more updates.
