'Saaho' to release in IMAX screens worldwide

Mumbai, Aug 13 (IANS) Telugu superstar Prabhas' multilingual comeback film "Saaho" is all set to release in IMAX format, besides the regular 2d format.

The IMAX version of "Saaho" will open not only in India, but all across the globe. The film will be digitally re-mastered in the immersive IMAX format for all markets.

While it has become a common practice to release Hollywood films in IMAX screens, the trend is not yet prevalent among Indian filmmakers, particularly the ones in Bollywood. "Dhoom 3", "Gold" and "2.0" have been among few Indian films to have had an IMAX release.

"We are thrilled to partner with UV-Creations and T-Series on the release of Saaho, a pulse-pounding, non-stop action epic that deserves to be experienced in IMAX," Megan Colligan, President of IMAX Entertainment and Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp said.

"Saaho" is scheduled to release in three languages -- Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. The film is directed by Sujeeth, and co-stars Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Jackie Shroff in key roles. The film is scheduled to open on August 30.

"Saaho" is Telugu superstar Prabhas' first release since his blockbuster "Bahubali" series.
