For months now fans have been waiting for the release of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s ambitious action flick, Saaho. The film is mounted on a massive scale and that fact is prominent from the action stunts that were showcased in the trailer. Saaho stars Prabhas in the lead and in the trailer, the Baahubali star is seeing acing some daredevil stunts. The response to Saaho’s trailer has been overwhelming and fans are looking forward to seeing some Hollywood level stunts in the film. 

However, the budget of the film has been in the discussion along with Prabhas’ compensation for the same. Rumours stated that the Baahubali actor charged around 100 Crore for the film. However, in a recent chat, Prabhas denied the same and mentioned that after Baahubali, he could not ask for the same level of compensation as that film had set the standards very high. The Saaho star mentioned that when the budget went overboard and he saw his friends (makers of the film) putting all their money without knowing anything about return, he couldn’t ask for more. Hence, he took a pay cut of 20 per cent for the film.

In the interview with Mumbai Mirror, Prabhas said, “Baahubali has set the bar high, but Saaho was a Rs 250 crore film so I knew I couldn’t charge my usual remuneration. I started out with a 20 per cent cut. Then, the film went slightly over and though my friends were ready to pay up, I couldn’t take their money knowing they were putting in so much without thinking of what they would earn.”
