Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s Saaho, which was earlier releasing on 15th August, has finally been postponed. The news of its pushed release date was doing rounds since days, and now the makers have revealed its new poster with the release date.
Akshay Kumar & team’s Mission Mangal and John Abraham’s Batla House are now the two releases at the box office on the Independence day. Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Sacred Games 2 will also see a digital release on the same day. With Saaho moving, we have now one less option to choose from.
Though Batla House and Mission Mangal have the perfect ingredients to be an I-Day release, Saaho has the feel of an event film. The spokesperson of the film said they are planning to release the film on a very large scale. With 2 other releases, the screen would have suffered a hit.
“We want to bring the best to the audience. For bringing finesse to the action sequences we need some more time. Although we are shifting the date from Independence Day we want to stick to the month of Independence and patriotism with ‘Saaho’. We are dedicated to bringing the biggest movie on the largest scale,” a spokesperson for the film’s producers said in a statement.
Saaho also has an ensemble cast of Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Pandey, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay and Murali Sharma, amongst others. It is being shot in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu simultaneously. Directed by Sujeet, the film’s action sequences have been choreographed by international action master Kenny Bates. A UV Creations and T-Series production, the film’s Hindi distribution is being taken care of by AA Films.
