Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s Saaho is one of the most-awaited films of 2019. The film is all set to hit the screens on August 30. The makers have reportedly spent Rs 70 crore on just one action sequence, which gives us a fair idea that the film is an expensive one. Now as per a recent report in TOI, the actor has decided to let go of his upfront fee since the film wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. However, in return the actor will be getting a hefty share from the profit of the film.
If reports are to be believed, Prabhas will be claiming about 50 per cent of the film's profit. By doing so, Prabhas will become the first Tollywood actor to take home the profits.

Saaho was earlier slated to release on 15th August, but to avoid clash with Mission Mangal and Batla house, the film's release date was pushed to August 30. ''We want to bring the best to the audience. For bringing finesse to the action sequences, we need some more time. Although we are shifting the date from Independence Day but we want to stick to the month of Independence and patriotism with Saaho. We are dedicated to bringing the biggest movie on the largest scale,'' a spokesperson for the producers had said.
Directed by Sujeeth, Saaho is getting released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam. After the mind-boggling success of Baahubali series, Prabhas will be seen in Saaho. The actor hasn't had any release in the past two years and his fans are waiting with bated breath to finally see the star.
Apart from Prabhas and Shraddha, Saaho also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles.
