Fans are excitedly waiting for the release of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho. The ambitious action flick has so much buzz around it that the theatrical rights for the AP and Nizam circuit have already been brought for a recorded amount of Rs 125 crores, which beat Baahubali 2's record of Rs 122 crore.

And taking all this into consideration, one would think that Prabhas would have charged a hefty amount for this film after delivering the box-office monster Baahubali 2. It was also rumoured that Prabhas was paid a staggering Rs 100 crore for the film. But in a recent interview, Prabhas revealed how he didn't charge his usual fee and also took a 20 per cent cut in pay.

He 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."

Helmed by Sujeeth and is produced by V. Vamshi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapati, Saaho is an action film that is mounted on a massive scale. And apart from Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhas the film also stars Mahesh Manjrekar, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Arun Vijay, Chunky Panday amongst the others. Saaho will hit the theatres on August 30, 2019, and will also be released in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam.
