'Saaho' first weekend box office collections: Rakes of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor films at Rs 276 Cr worldwide

Sujeeth Saaho's multi-starrer with Prabhas & Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles released last Friday amidst high-expectations, but received lukewarm reviews from critics & audience alike.

However, thanks to the strong openings, the film that was propped up on a Rs 350 Cr budget has raked in a share of Rs 152.96 Cr & gross of Rs 276 Cr around the world . Here’s a breakdown of the figures around the world on his first weekend in all languages, according to Andhra Ticket office :

‘ Saaho ’ seems inspired by Jerome Salle’s French film ‘Largo Winch’, just like Trivikram’s Pawan Kalyan starrer ‘Agnyaathavaasi’ was. The film sees the story of a group of dons from the fictional city of Waaji, who vie for the throne after their head dies in an accident. Elsewhere, the police department investigate a bunch of robberies with the help of an undercover cop. How these two worlds collide & is anyone who they seem forms the crux of the story. In the film, Prabhas plays the role of an undercover cop, while Shraddha Kapoor plays the role of a cop too. The film features a huge cast list which includes names like Neil Nitin Mukesh, Evelyn Sharma, Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey & others.

' Saaho ' is the 3rd biggest film in Tollywood history with all 3 belonging to Prabhas & the 6th in South Indian film, with 3 to Prabhas & Rajini each.
