Saaho is Prabhas' next and it is being directed by Sujeeth who had earlier directed Run Raja Run. Given the huge canvass of the film, Prabhas completely believed in the directorial skills of Sujeeth and okayed the project.
Though some of his associates had doubts about Sujeeth's capability in handling such a high-budget film, Prabhas stood by the director and instilled confidence in him.
But things are not going smoothly on the sets, informs a source.
Since the schedules have gone haywire, his plans have gone chaotic. The foreign schedule that was to happen last December was pushed to Jan 2018. And later it was rescheduled to Feb 26. The latest we hear is that it will happen towards the end of March.
The director is very particular about filming a lengthy action episode at Burj Khalifa under the guidance of Hollywood action choreographer Kenny Bates.
However, permissions took time and when permissions came, the actors involved did not have enough dates. This is straining Prabhas, say unit members.
There is talk that Prabhas may launch his next film this summer and begin its shoot simultaneously.
On the other hand, UV Creations which is known for producing quality films is said to be investing nearly Rs 40 Cr on the Dubai schedule.
