Working in a bi-lingual has its own risks. While one gets to reach out to a wide audience, actors have to be flexible enough to speak or at least lip-sync correctly in both languages.
Since it will be a first for both Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor, talk from the sets of Saaho is that they have promised to bail each other out. The lead pair have decided to speak in Hindi and Telugu on the sets during shoots.
Prabhas is making his Hindi debut, while Shraddha is making her Telugu debut. Of course, there will be tutors to both the actors, but they have decided to help each other out.
While Shraddha's lines will be dubbed in the Telugu version as 'the audiences are rather particular about diction in Telugu-speaking states', Prabhas will dub for himself in Hindi. In the past, Sharad Kelkar had dubbed for Prabhas for the Baahubali series.
Shraddha had already expressed her excitement over being cast opposite Baahubali actor Prabhas on Twitter. Saaho stars Jackie Shroff, Neil Nithin Mukesh, Chunkey Pandey as antagonists.
Meanwhile, Shraddha Kapoor is busy promoting her film Haseena Parker in which she plays Dawood Ibrahim's sister, slated for release on September 22.
Prabhas is going slow post success of Baahubali and is concentrating on the shooting of Saaho.
