It's bigger than Baahubali in terms of the release in Nizam! #Saaho has the unique advantage of having long weekend in both India and USA.

Amul Vikas Mohan: Prabhas is a megastar who enjoys Pan-India fandom. ver since it was announced that Prabhas is all set to make his Bollywood debut, his fans have been going crazy waiting for Saaho to release and the wide response that the trailer and the songs have received is proof of how huge Prabhas is. Another reason that Saaho is going to be one of the biggest openings of this year is the amount of time and dedication the entire team of Saaho has put to deliver the high-octane action thriller that the film is. Being shot in multiple languages means the movie will be released simultaneously across India with a higher number of screens, which is only going to add to its opening collections.
