Shraddha Kapoor is all pumped to make her foray into south Indian cinema with the upcoming Sujeeth-helmed film ‘Saaho’. Touted as one of the most anticipated flicks of the year, fans have been fervently waiting for its release. It has however now been reported that the film’s release date is being postponed for reasons more than one. The Prabhas-starrer will apparently now release on August 30, while August 15 was locked in initially. It is being speculated that this decision has come after it was announced that two Telugu films ‘Ranarangam’ and ‘Evaru’ will be released on August 15 too. And so, the filmmaker thought it was best to avoid competition with a clashing release.
Another reason for the change of date could be the rivalry Saaho would face in Bollywood. Akshay Kumar’s ‘Mission Mangal’ and John Abraham’s ‘Batla House’ are slated to release on Indian Independence Day too. Since Saaho would release in multiple languages including Hindi, the makers feel forced to change the release date and the most suitable one seems to be August 30.
Reports about ‘Saaho’ facing some post-production issues have been making the rounds too and the cast and crew will allegedly need some more time to complete their work on the film. While the change in the release date of ‘Saaho’ is not official yet, an announcement from the film’s team is expected to come soon. Besides Shraddha and Prabhas, ‘Saaho’ also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff, Chunkey Panday, Evelyn Sharma, Mandira Bedi and Arun Vijay among many other stars. Prabhas, who was last seen in the blockbuster film ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’, will make his on-screen comeback after two years with the forthcoming project. Shraddha earlier tweeted, "So we wrapped my bit on ‘Saaho’ and it’s been one incredible journey. Each member is too special.”
