The makers of much-awaited action thriller Saaho, which is scheduled for release on August 14, have shelled out Rs 70 crore on the eight-minute action sequence featuring Baahubali actor Prabhas.
We also know that Saaho is a mega-budget action extravaganza that is made with a whopping Rs 350 crore. We also know that the team has shot some action and chase scenes in Abu Dhabi and the Shades of Saaho Chapter 1 had offered a glimpse of these stunts. What we don't know is the cost of these scenes.
The latest we hear is that the team of Saaho had canned an eight-minute action sequence in Abu Dhabi earlier this year. The makers have spent a whopping amount of Rs 70 crore on this scene.
