The Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho opened to an earth shattering response across India which was very much in line with the trade expectations.
Saaho was highly anticipated as the action drama was in making for last 2 years. Prabhas had already won immense popularity due to the Bahubali films and now t is time to rejoice for the fans of Prabhas as the rebel star is back in action with one of the most expensive film of India, Saaho. Touted to have a mammoth production budget of Rs 350 crore, Saaho has surpassed all expectations from its mind-blowing trailer and first look which boast off some eye-popping action stunts.
Saaho is being directed by Sujeeth and will be the debut film of Prabhas in Hindi while it will be Shraddha Kapoor’s debut in South Indian cinema. Saaho has opened to a fabulous response with 40-45% occupancy in the morning shows. The collections picked slightly in the evening and night shows but also got impacted in few places due to the delay in prints reaching theater on time. As per early estimates, Saaho opened to some where between Rs 24-25 crores which is better than Bahubali but far away from Bahubali 2 (Rs 511 crore) in Hindi version.
Though the reviews are not good, but Saaho minted somewhere between Rs 64-66 crore in all language and crossed the first day collections of Aamir Khan starrer Thugs Of Hindostan, which minted Rs 52.50 crore in all language version and even Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 (Rs 60 crore), and should be able to do well in long extended weekend as Monday will be a holiday owing to Ganesh Chathurthi festival.
