Prabhas used to make films within a budget of 25 crores until 2012. His Mirchi crossed 35 crores and many felt it went over budget but the movie became a blockbuster, establishing his relatives banner UV Creations.
After Baahubali, he is taking two years time to release his next film and that movie budget is said to be close to 200 crores with one action sequence costing 40 – 45 crores budget. Even though the director of the film, Saaho, Sujith is one film old, producers are banking on Prabhas here.
Not just Saaho, his next after that is also getting a budget of 150 crores and it is not an action film too. It is a romantic comedy say sources close to the film. But it has an interesting setting of 1940’s and present time.
So, the team is recreating Rome and some other European cities in Hyderabad and the sets only costing 35 crores, it seems. Pooja Hegde is acting as the lady lead and Jill fame Radhakrishna is directing the film. He is also, one film old. Gopi Krishna arts and UV Creations are producing the film.
