Prabhas was catapulted to national fame after the phenomenal success of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali franchise. Though he is a huge name in the South, he also has an enviable fan following in the rest of the country.
At the trailer launch of Saaho, Prabhas was asked to say something in Hindi for his Hindi-speaking fans. After initially evading the question, the superstar had a hilarious response. “Jai Hind,” he said.
Saaho will release worldwide on August 30, in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Prabhas revealed at the event that his voice was not dubbed in the Hindi version and that it was difficult for him to say his dialogues in Hindi. “I can read and write Hindi, but we don’t speak it. So yeah, it was a little difficult, but I managed,” he said.
Distributor Anil Thadani said at the trailer launch that Saaho will have a grand release across the country. “It will be one of the widest releases. Around 4,500 screens only in North India. South will be separate,” he said.
