Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor to Shoot For Saaho in Dubai And Abu Dhabi
The film will be shot in the Middle East instead of India
Baahubali actor Prabhas' next film will be majorly shot in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The crew has applied for permission for some of the major sequences including climax sequences on Burj Khalifa. The permission is pending but if sources are to be believed then it is being actively considered by the Dubai government. "We can't wait to see Prabhas in the upcoming action thriller, more so after knowing that he'll feature in a 20-minute long chase sequence In Dubai. Part of the high octane chase sequence will also see Prabhas leaving traces in Burj Khalifa," it was quoted by a source in the film's crew today.
After the chase sequence, the film's team will take the party to Abu Dhabi. "The 20-minute chase sequence will primarily be shot in Dubai. Though permissions are yet to be procured, the producers wish to shoot a major chunk at the Khalifa. That will be followed by a week-long leg in Abu Dhabi," the source added.
It will be high octane chase sequence similar to the other Hollywood movies including the Mission Impossible franchise that has been shot at the exact same location. "The sequence will involve the use of bikes, cars and trucks. UAE is known for its magnificent skyscrapers. Preparations are underway to make certain that the chase sequence looks like one among the most stylish ever created. Internationally recognised stuntman Kenny Bates is in charge of Saaho's action sequences," the source further said.
Shraddha Kapoor stars opposite Prabhas in Saaho, which is a trilingual film. The thought of two big stars heading to our city is amazing, isn’t it?
