Prabhas has landed in trouble in deciding the runtime of “Saaho”. Director Sujeeth with his inexperience in making big-budgeted movies has locked 3 hours 30 minutes of runtime. Shocked with this lengthy time, Prabhas took the help of Baahubali director Rajamouli. He asked the top director to bail him out of this mess.
Rajamouli watched the film for two days and brought the movie in place. After taking Rajamouli’s inputs, the team reportedly cut down songs and deleted many unnecessary episodes. The runtime has now come down to 2 hours 50 minutes. Prabhas has asked the editor to cut down another five minutes. Rajamouli must have suggested keeping the second half of the movie racy. This is why a song in the second half has been removed.
Prabhas’s future is depending on this movie. If this film bombs at the box-office, his market, and his image come crashing down. He is now riding high on the popularity of “Baahubali” movies. But for his future films, the business will only be done based on the performance of “Saaho”.
