Katrina Kaif just might be seen paired with Baahubali star Prabhas next. Kat has been apparently zeroed in on to star in his next film, the multilingual sci-fi thriller Saaho, which will be directed by Sujeeth.
According to a report by Filmfare, the Saaho makers had also approached Deepika Padukone, Parineeti Chopra and Amy Jackson for the role, but finally have decided on Katrina. A formal announcement would be made once Prabhas is back from his well-deserved US break. She will be seen not only with Salman Khan in Tiger Zinda Hai and Ranbir Kapoor in Jagga Jasoos, but also with Aamir Khan in Thugs of Hindostan.
Katrina had worked in the south Indian film industry before she became one of the most sought-after actors in Bollywood. She had acted in 2006 Malayalam film Balram vs. Tharadas, which had Mammootty in the lead role. She also did Telugu films like Malliswari and Allari Pidugu. If rumours come true, Saaho will be her comeback film down south.
Saaho is set to be helmed by Sujeeth, who had narrated the story to Prabhas even before the release of Baahubali 1. But post the humongous success of Baahubali 2, the actor has gained an international recognition. In order to cash in on the Prabhas’ pan-India popularity, Saaho will be produced in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages.
