Post Baahubali, Prabhas shaved off his beard and sported a clean look for the first images of Saaho. The film hasn't gone on to the sets and no particular date has been set for now.
Similarly, the hunt is still on for the heroine. Initially, there was talk that a Bollywood heroine will play the lead in the movie as the film will be multi-lingual.
But then came the news that the film will have a south Indian heroine. Again nothing is final. Still, Saaho has generated a huge buzz in the market.
According to latest reports, Netflix has offered to grab the rights of Saaho for Rs 50 crore. The company will be paying the amount for the online telecast of the film.
While Prabhas who played the lead in Baahubali series, playing the hero is one of the reasons, the film being made in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi is another reason for the pricing. Netflix fixed the price at Rs 50 crore for all languages.
However, no deal has been finalized as yet. And there is talk that Amazon has also joined the race for the rights, further pushing the price. So the makers of the film UV Creations have decided to wait till a final deal is struck.
In the past, Netflix bought the rights of Prabhas' Baahubali for Rs 25 crore. So it has surprised all that Netflix has put forth an offer of Rs 50 crore.
Meanwhile, UV Creations has decided on a budget of Rs 150 crore for the making of Saaho.
