Even with the negative reviews prevailing the movie right from the release date, it managed to stay on screen. In Bollywood with much other highly rated movies, Saaho scored 150 Crores in Box office collection. It had released in three different languages. Chhichore was following Saaho from the beginning while Dream Girl a low budget good quality movie is a new competition. It has crossed 153 Crores as of now.
Even with the mediocre story and disappointing graphics usage. Presence of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor saved the movie. The movie got a good collection on the first day because of the same reason and stayed unaffected for four days. Yet from day 5 the movie witnessed a huge decrease in the Audience. Now the movie is inching in with movies such as Kesari (Rs. 154.41 crores) and Total Dhamaal (Rs. 154.23 crores). This will lead the movie becoming 5th highest-grossing movie 2019.
The movie production cost is Rs. 350 crores. The movie already managed to earn an approximate of Rs. 424 crores in Indian Markets as well as overseas. There is no question in how the movie managed to make this success. It is the presence of Prabhas as stated earlier, caused this mediocre story to hit the high gross mark.
Prabhas had revealed to a prominent source that he didn’t charge as much as he did for Bahubali for Sahoo. Bahubali being a very big-budget movie, he charged his usual remuneration. He gave a 20 per cent cut on his usual salary. Even then the movie went more than a planned expense.
