Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor have been creating all the right noises ever since the intriguing teaser of the film ‘Saaho‘. The teaser showcased Prabhas and Shraddha performing some high octane stunts. During the recent media interactions, director Sujeeth spilled the beans on why he cast Shraddha in the film.

The ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ actress Shraddha Kapoor is marking her debut in the South film industry with this film. Revealing why he cast Shraddha opposite the ‘Baahubali‘ actor Prabhas, Sujeet said, “It is an important role for the female character. Shraddha drives the film to the end. It was a conscious decision to make my female characters strong. When we started working on the teaser, we had two options here – to go with Prabhas, considered as a huge star and you expect him to be there in the opening scene. And other was to begin it with Shraddha and we chose the latter.”

While much has not been revealed about the plot of the film, it also stars Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Chunky Panday in key roles.
