The overnight superstar, Prabhas, has made his name in the film industry with his latest movie, Baahubali (Bahubali) 2. He will next be seen in Saaho, which will be made in Telugu and Hindi. The makers have now announced the movie's villain and he is Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh.
Saaho has found a Bollywood bad boy as it will also be made in Hindi. Neil has played the villain's role in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo opposite Salman Khan. Now, he will be seen against Baahubali Prabhas in Saaho, which will be dubbed in Tamil, Malayalam and English.
"Baahubali made everyone aware how important it is to balance out the moral conflict. Prabhas' Baahubali act would have fallen flat if Rana's madness as Bhalala did not spread itself out throughout the plot," a source told DNA.
The report suggests that Neil would have several hand-to-hand combat scenes with Prabhas in Saaho. "After Prabhas, Neil was the first artiste to be signed for Saaho. Also, so far, he's the only member of the cast besides Prabhas. He has a powerful role," the source added.
It will be interesting to watch the two of them against each other in the movie. The film has not found its actress yet, but the villain is all set to star opposite another superstar after Salman.
Prabhas might lend his own voice for the Hindi language version. The actor's command over the language is not perfect, since it is not his mother tongue. So it has been reported that he will learn the language for the movie.
Meanwhile, the Saaho unit has planned to shoot an important segment in Mumbai. An action sequence will also be shot on the streets of Mumbai. Saaho is written and directed by Sujeeth. It will feature Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's music and R Madhi's cinematography.
