Prbhas and his team are in UA for a shoot for more than three weeks. They are there to shoot an action sequence.
The warrior of Baahubali Prabhas sounded as excited as a small child when he revealed that he crashed many cars, SUVs and trucks while shooting for a thriller Saaho in Abu Dhabi.
"We had a plan and we went to action director Kenny Bates two year back. Kenny came to Abu Dhabi for recce and he loved the location. He wanted to shoot everything live. Almost 90 per cent of whatever that we are going to show on screen is real. He wanted to show the real cars. He wanted the real cars to fly. We crashed around 27 cars and five trucks. We wanted everything real instead of going for CGI as it gives a real impact. Generally, you have 70 per cent CG and 30 per cent real but over here in Abu Dhabi, we opted for a more real shoot. This will be something that no one has seen before," said Prabhas while talking to the UAE media in Abu Dhabi.
The producer of the movie confirmed that they actually crashed 37 cars and not 27.
Prabhas said that he feels very grateful that the authorities agreed to stop the activities in the bridges before giving it away for the movie shoot. Shraddha Kapoor who is his co-star in the movie will also be a part of the action sequence.
Prabhas gained popularity across the world for his warrior look and body in Baahubali. He had to gain weight for Baahubali worked hard to shed some weight and muscles. He said, "I don't want to a warrior look for every film. So I changed my diet and exercise routine to prepare for this character."
Prabhas treated himself to shawarmas while in the UAE. This is the first time that Prabhas came to Abu Dhabi and he enjoyed going to Sheikh Zayed Mosque and the Louvre museum to spend his free time.
Saaho is a high pace action drama with Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor in the leading role. It also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Jackie Shroff in supporting roles. The film is written and directed by Sujeeth Reddy and produced by UV Creations
