After a long wait of two years, Baahubali actor Prabhas is making a comeback on the silver screen with mega-budget actioner Saaho, which is set to hit the screens this Friday. Thanks to the Baahubali franchise, Prabhas has garnered huge popularity in the North circuit as well and that will definitely benefit the Hindi version of Saaho. While we are sure that Telugu and Tamil versions will have a record-breaking opening down South, the Hindi version also has the potential to take an excellent opening at the ticket windows.

The songs and trailers have worked big time for the film and the audience have also loved the crackling chemistry between Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor. Looking at the buzz and craze around Saaho, we are sure that it will open with a minimum collection of around Rs 25 crore on its first day a the ticket windows. The numbers can escalate further if we see a growth in the evening and night shows. If Saaho gets positive reviews from the audience, it might cross the Rs 100 crore mark in its opening weekend itself. Honestly, we are expecting Saaho to challenge all Bollywood biggies but it will be interesting to see how it is received by the cine-goers.

Saaho features an ensemble cast including Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Mahesh Manjrekar, Murli Sharma along with Arun Vijay and others. It is directed by Sujeeth, who previously helmed Run Raja Run. It is made on the whopping budget of Rs 350 crore. A UV Creations production, Saaho will be presented by T-Series and its Hindi distribution is being taken care of by AA Films. So, have you booked the tickets of this quintessential venture?
