Prabhas, after the stupendous success of Baahubali, had his hopes high on his previous film, Saaho. But, the film, directed by Sujeeth, failed to rake in the moolah and received negative reviews from the critics and audience. While the actor has finalised his next flick, Jaan with director Radhakrishna Kumar, the film is yet to be wrapped up.
During the promotions of Saaho, Prabhas said that they had completed 20% of the shooting. The film’s shooting was supposed to resume in December and the makers have erected a huge set at a private studio in Hyderabad. However, reports suggest that Prabhas is going on a vacation yet again because of which the shooting has been postponed.
A Deccan Chronicle report suggests that the makers of Jaan are in dilemma as to when the film’s shooting will resume. Since the shooting has been postponed it is said that Pooja Hegde is relaxing at her house in Mumbai.
A source told the daily, “The producers plan to start the shoot from January next year once Prabhas is back from vacation.” Recently, the actor had gone to Europe to chill and have a relaxed time.
Earlier, it was rumoured that Prabhas has requested director Radhakrishna Kumar to make changes to Jaan’s script after the result of Saaho. “Saaho didn’t appeal much to the Telugu audiences, but it was a huge hit in the Hindi market, collecting more than Rs 100 crore in Hindi alone. While he’s not looking at doing a big Hindi film right away, the actor has requested the director to make a few changes so that the upcoming film appeals to the Hindi audiences, too,” another source told the daily in an earlier interview.
Jaan is tipped to be a period love story set in the 1970s with Prabhas essaying the role of a fortune teller.
