Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - FUN - Sneha Ma­hade­van

Baahubali star Prabhas will soon be shoot­ing for a high oc­tane chase se­quence for his Bol­ly­wood de­but, Saaho. He will be per­form­ing stunts on mov­ing ve­hi­cles in this par­tic­u­lar se­quence and has been train­ing for it. A source re­veals that the Saaho team is “mak­ing sure to prep up Prabhas” for the chase. “His phys­i­cal prepa­ra­tion in­volves “jog­ging, car­dio­vas­cu­lar train­ing, weight train­ing, and plyometrics ob­sta­cle races, all of which will help him pick up the moves eas­ily. He was also re­quired to train for six to seven hours daily to mas­ter his moves,” says the source. “Saaho has a fu­tur­is­tic setup, which makes the ac­tions and all the other scenes of the film that much ad­vanced and high-paced. Spe­cial fo­cus is on the ac­tion se­quences of the film as the mak­ers want those to be un­prece­dented,” the source says. After the mas­sive suc­cess of Baahubali, Prabhas does not want to dis­ap­point his fans who come into the the­atres to watch the film, and has tried harder than ever to per­fect each move. The ac­tor wanted to make the scene seem as re­al­is­tic as pos­si­ble. “Given the im­por­tance of scene, Prabhas agreed to train — even if that meant train­ing for three months for a high oc­tane chase se­quence that lasts barely four min­utes. He didn’t want to take any chances as this se­quence forms an in­te­gral part of the movie,” the source says. Saaho, which is a trilin­gual ac­tion thriller, will see him pair with Shrad­dha Kapoor.

PRABHAS’ PHYS­I­CAL PREPA­RA­TION IN­VOLVES JOG­GING, CAR­DIO­VAS­CU­LAR TRAIN­ING, WEIGHT TRAIN­ING, AND PLYOMETRICS.
