Though the Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho amassed huge numbers at the box office, it attracted loads of trolls and memes. It fetched severe criticism for its flawed screenplay and dragged run time. With all such backlash coming on the way of the movie, seems like director Sujeeth is deeply affected.
During an interview with Deccan Chronicle, Sujeeth spilled the beans on the negativity on Saaho. He said, ” I made the film that Prabhas sir, my producers, and I believed in. The audiences came in large numbers to watch it, but still, I am being treated as harshly as if I have committed a crime. I don’t know why all these reports targeting me are being published. I last gave interviews one day after the release of Saaho. Even when I say ‘no comments’, it is turned into an interview. And those quotes are now being used against me.”
The filmmaker further added that contrary to all such negativity, there are people like Saaho producers and actor Prabhas, who are supporting him. “I should be enjoying the film’s success, but instead I am sick in bed. Fortunately for me, Prabhas sir and the producers are supporting me. That’s the only good thing happening in my life right now. Seeing all the criticism, I decided to keep quiet and still, all these negative things are being said about me, ” adds Sujeeth.
Saaho released on 30th August 2019.
