Saaho starring Shraddha Kapoor & Prabhas has been making noise for all the right reasons lately. Starting from their teaser, songs and to the newly released posters, everything is working in favour of the movie – to an extent, where the latest reports suggest that the makers have already made collections of whopping 300 crores.
Yes, you heard it right! If a report by Times Of India is to be believed, the Saaho makers have been highly benefitted while selling the theatrical rights. “The film has already collected a whopping 300 crores even before its release. The amount collected is in the form of theatrical rights which includes all the languages. Well, this excludes the satellite and OTT platform rights as the deals for the same have not been sealed yet,” states the report.
It is also being said that the movie will be releasing in 4500+ screens just in Hindi, and the regional languages would only add up the numbers further.
Moreover, the IMAX version of Saaho will open not only in India but all across the globe. The film will be digitally re-mastered in the immersive IMAX format for all markets.
While it has become a common practice to release Hollywood films in IMAX screens, the trend is not yet prevalent among Indian filmmakers, particularly the ones in Bollywood. “Dhoom 3”, “Gold” and “2.0” have been among few Indian films to have had an IMAX release.
Saaho is scheduled to release in three languages — Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. The film is directed by Sujeeth, and co-stars Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Jackie Shroff in key roles. The film is scheduled to open on August 30.
Saaho is Telugu superstar Prabhas’ first release since his blockbuster Baahubali series.
