The music director trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has decided to opt out of the Prabhas starrer Saaho as its makers were keen on roping in multiple musicians for the project. Following their ouster, Ghibran has been signed up to take over the reins.
He has composed the tunes for two of the film’s making videos and the background score while a few other music directors will also be brought onboard to composer tunes for other songs.
Saaho, directed by Sujeeth, is bankrolled by V Vamshi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapati under the banner UV Creations on a budget of Rs 300 crores. The film’s star cast also includes Neil Nitin Mukesh, Lal, Arun Vijay, Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff, Vennela Kishore, Mahesh Manjrekar and Chunkey Pandey in supporting roles.
While Prabhas plays the male lead in this action entertainer, sharing the screen space with him as his heroine is Shraddha Kapoor. The technical crew of this film includes R Madhi for cranking the camera and A Sreekar Prasad editing.
Saaho is in the final stages for production with its release planned for this Independence Day on August 15. The film’s shooting began last year and has been progressing slowly for several months due to the shooting schedules planned abroad.
For Saaho, Prabhas has lost 8 kilos. He was put in a strict diet of minimal carbohydrates and a lot of fruits to ensure the weight loss happened within a short span of time. Saaho is touted to be an action entertainer with some high octane action sequences. Also, the film will have oodles of VFX which will be a treat to watch.
There are reports that the makers of this film are planning to dub the film in Japanese and release it in Japan following the immense success of Prabhas’ Baahubali in the country.
