Salman Khan and Prabhas are the superstars of Bollywood and Tollywood respectively. While the movies of “Bhaijan” fans guarantee a huge response in the first week, post “Baahubali” Prabhas is expected to get the same momentum for his upcoming movie “Saaho.” Both can be said to be highly mooted movies of these two stars.
Apart from the producers of the film, even Prabhas has big hopes from his 400-crore budget “Saaho” that is to release at the end of August this year. Even Salman is keen to repeat the feat of huge success with “Dabangg 3” similar to the franchise’s previous two flicks. The third installment of “Dabangg” franchise will release in December this year.
A Common Factor May Guarantee Success For Both Movies
Nowadays it is a common thing to release movies internationally. But this time along, with “Saaho” and “Dabangg 3” a new trend can be said to be initiated as both these movies are multi-lingual. “Saaho” has been shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. On the other hand, Salman’s “Dabangg 3” will release simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.
Although inclusion of big stars like Salman Khan and Prabhas do guarantee initial success, the producers nowadays want to ensure that they recover at least their investment in the movie. For example, “Saaho” is a 400 crore budget movie. By releasing it in three languages, producers are ensuring that the cash is generated right from the Day 1 of its release from more parts of the country.
After “Baahubali” Prabhas has gained a soft corner in the hearts of even Hindi speaking community. So, by ensuring multi-lingual release the producers of “Saaho” and “Daabang3” are now trying to cross-over the barriers of languages and extend their market.
