In 2017, Tollywood star Prabhas gave strong proof of his star power when Baahubali 2 opened to a terrific response at the box office and received rave reviews from all corners. The film, helmed by SS Rajamouli, did full justice to Darling's acting abilities, which gave his fans a reason to rejoice. With Baahubali 2 in the rear-view, Prabhas is currently awaiting the release of Saaho, one of the biggest Tollywood movies of the year. Earlier today (July 19, 2019), the makers revealed that Saaho will release on August 30, 2019, instead of Independence Day (August 15, 2019), which left fans in a state of shock.
Trouble For Gang Leader?
Nani starrer Gang Leader, directed by Vikram Kumar, too is slated to release on August 30, 2019, which has ruffled a few feathers. The general feeling is that Prabhas mania might completely overshadow Gang Leader if the two films clash at the box office.
The makers of Saaho are alleged to have recently met the Gang Leader team and requested them to change the release date. However, according to reports, the talks failed to yield any result as the makers of the Nani starrer refused to entertain the request.
The Inside Story
Interestingly, the buzz is that the makers of Gang Leader are toying with the idea of postponing the film to September 13, 2019, as clashing with Saaho might not be a good idea. If this is indeed the case, an official announcement regarding the release date will most probably be made in the coming days.
Saaho, directed by Sujeeth, is an action-thriller that features several stunts at par with the ones seen in Hollywood movies. The film has Shraddha Kapoor as the leading lady and marks her Tollywood debut. Bollywood stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Jackie Shroff too are a part of the cast.
