Saaho trimmed by 18 minutes on Rajamouli's suggestion
Prabhas starrer Saaho is gearing up for grand release this 30th. The post-production activities are done and dusted and the film is going for censor scrutiny very soon.
Telugu360 has exclusively learnt that the makers of Saaho have trimmed 18 minutes of the final version to bring the run time below three hours. It was SS Rajamouli who watched the final cut of Saaho and suggested to edit the lengthy scenes. The original run time was close to three hours. Based on Rajamouliâs suggestion, Sujeeth and his team edited some part and managed to keep the final run time close to 2 hours 52 minutes.
As Saaho is an action based film with a few songs, lengthy run time could have been an undoing factor for ideal viewing. Also, SS Rajamouli is an experienced director with a strong knowledge of audience pulse. So, his suggestions would definitely make a huge difference in the final output.
Saaho stars Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nithin Mukesh and few other Bollywood actors in prominent roles. UV Creations has bankrolled the film on a staggering budget.
