Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho has generated immense curiosity among fans and they can’t wait to witness the high-tech action thriller. In the film, Niel Nitin Mukesh is all set to play a baddie.
In an interview with a leading daily, the actor spoke about how he became part of the film. The actor and Sujeeth met at an awards function. “A few days after the awards function he (Sujeeth) met me for the narration of Saaho. I loved the way he had envisioned the film and my character and instantly said yes," he said.
But then Neil was nervous that he may be removed from the film. The reason for that he said was, "This was around the time that Baahubali was about to release. After it became a massive hit, we had to wait for over two years because Prabhas had to shoot for the second film. Even though I did other films during this period, my only worry was that I might be replaced in Saaho as many actors had changed. Fortunately, Sujeeth kept his word."
But making this film was not easy for Neil. Talking about it he said, "The shooting of Saaho took longer than I expected. At the same time, I was also filming my home production Bypass Road, for which I had to lose weight. So the fluctuation in the body weight was difficult."
The film also stars Jackie Shroff Murli Sharma, Mandira Bedi, Mahesh Manjrekar and Chunky Pandey in the pivotal roles.
It is written and directed by Sujeeth and produced by V Vamsi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapat under the banner of UV Creations.Saaho will release in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam on August 30.
