Prabhas's Saaho is making all the right noises as it is gearing up for release on August 30. The film which is made on a budget of Rs 350 crore has Shraddha Kapoor in the female lead role. The Bollywood actress is making her debut in Tollywood with the movie and a recent rumour about the actress's salary has shocked all of the south Indian film industries.
It is said that Shraddha has received Rs 7 crore for the film, which is releasing in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
It has taken a lot of years and hits for actresses like Nayanthara to earn in crores in Tamil cinema. On the other hand, Shraddha Kapoor is relatively a new face in the South even though she is a well-established actress in Bollywood. Thus her fee for Saaho has come as a big surprise in the South.
According to a report published in a Tamil website, the actress usually charges Rs 2 crore for her Bollywood films but for Saaho she seems to have increased the fee.
Shraddha has been cast in Saaho to bring about a pan-Indian appeal to the movie. Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff, and many other Hindi actors are also part of the movie.
Shraddha Kapoor plays the role of a Crime Branch police officer in Saaho and she looks both stunning and kickass in the upcoming spy thriller.
Directed by Sujeeth, Saaho is the first film of Prabhas after the release of Baahubali: The Conclusion and it has created huge anticipation among the fans of the Telugu star.
