The new poster of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer “Saaho” prompted fans to compare it with an online video game called “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.” Both the lead actors can be seen in the middle of a gunfight with a group of armed assailants on the new poster. They are seen firing at the armed men through a glass wall. Shraddha also shared the poster on Instagram. “Breathtaking action like you’ve never seen before! Witness India’s biggest action thriller this August. #Saaho releasing worldwide on 30.08.2019,” read the caption.

The poster also shows the new release date of film to be August 30 later this year. It was postponed earlier to avert a clash with John Abraham’s “Batla House” and Akshay Kumar’s “Mission Mangal” on August 15. The makers have promised expensive action scenes never seen before. Reportedly an 8 minute action scene costed Rs 70 Crores. The cast also includes Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay and Murali Sharma. It is directed by Sujeeth and the multilingual film will release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu, simultaneously.
While speaking to a foreign media outlet, Prabhas said, “Filmmakers crashed around 37 cars and five trucks. We wanted everything real instead of going for Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) as it gives a real impact. Generally, you have 70 per cent CGI and 30 per cent real but over here in Abu Dhabi, we opted for a more real shoot. This will be something that no one has seen before.” Director Sujeeth added that, “The scale on which it is being made, a major budget will be spent on some extravagant action scenes. Although it will be a commercial outing, we are attempting something new and I would like to keep that as a surprise element.”
