Young Rebel Star Prabhas got a pan-Indian stardom post the blockbuster success of Baahubali. The actor was received extremely well by the northern audience and he now holds a good fan base in rural areas of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Many of Prabhas' old films have dubbed into Hindi and ran successfully at local theatres in rural areas of northern states.
Now, he is coming up with an action thriller called Saaho, which is gearing up for the release on the 30th of August. The makers are expecting a huge opening in the north, considering the popularity of Prabhas. The trade experts are predicting that it might get around Rs. 20-25 crores on day 1.
This year, Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Sigh collected Rs. 21 crores on opening day and Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 collected about Rs. 11 crores on day one. On this scale, Prabhas might cross the figures of both the Bollywood stars, which very well makes him the hotshot hero of the north.
