Despite repeated denials by the people at the helm, rumours  that Salman Khan will make an appearance  in   the eagerly-awaited  post-Baahubali Prabhas starrer Saaho persists. However  the  film’s  director Sujeeth  puts a firm  end  to speculation stating, “There is  no truth to this rumour. We don’t know where  it started from.”

Further investigation indicates that  the Saaho team indeed wanted to get Salman Khan on board for a brief but pivotal appearance. “The  North Indian lobby in Saaho is  seen to be not strong enough.Of course, there  is Shraddha Kapoor who plays the lead opposite Prabhas. But the Saaho team  wanted  someone far stronger. So they did approach  Salman for a guest appearance. But he cited  his busy schedule, promoting Bharat, as the reason why he could not  accommodate Saaho. However he  might help promote Saaho up North,” says  the  source.

The first look of Saaho

In the meanwhile Saaho now depends almost entirely  on Prabhas’s  charisma  to see  it through the North Indian  belt. Would the Baahubali magic sustain as Saaho hits theatres on August 15?  Trade  experts expect Saaho to have an  earth-shattering  opeing even  in  the  Hindi-speaking belts. And  they may be  right. The Akshay Kumar starrer Mission Mangal which was  to open on August 15 alongside Saaho has  apparently scurried  out  in search of a safer Friday.

Prabhas may not be known for his superstar status up the north of Vindhyas but his Baahubali was a huge blockbuster proving that cinema has no language barrier. These days though, it has become a trend to cast A-list Bollywood names alongside Tollywood superstars in big films. Alia Bhatt, for instance will be playing a role in Rajamouli's next.
