Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, who is best known for his roles as the villain, especially in Vijay’s Kaththi (2014), has reportedly been roped in to play the villain in Prabhas’ next Telugu film, Saaho. According to a DNA India report, Neil is the second artiste to be signed for a role in the multilingual film which is being directed by Sujeeth.

“So far, he’s the only member of the cast besides Prabhas. He has a powerful role,” a member of the film’s unit tells DNA. Neil will play a strong antagonist in the film.


Set to be shot in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, United States and Europe, Saaho reportedly also has Anushka Shetty in the lead cast. With music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, it will be bankrolled by UV Creations and distributed by Fox Star Studios.

An action thriller, Saaho‘s teaser was released on 28 April, on the day Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was released.

Neil, who was last seen playing the antagonist in Wazir last year, also has Golmaal Again and Indu Sarkar in the pipeline.
