The movie also features Chunky Pandey, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Jackie Shroff in crucial roles. Comprising of a catchy dance numbers like Psycho Saiyaan, to the beautiful diva Jacqueline Fernandez grooving to Bad Boy, Saaho’s music album went on to be a chartbuster.
Speaking about his experience while working on Saaho, Superstar Prabhas said, "Saaho was made with the sole intention of being an entertainer. Entertaining the audience with our work is the biggest achievement for all of us as we have spent so much money, energy, hardwork and time to make this film. There were critical things that I had to keep in mind as an actor, for example, in the south Indian language, the emotion inherent in a sentence normally comes at the end of the line. But in Hindi you express the emotion with every word. The flow of the language is different, and my expression had to be in sync with the words. This I know is a technical thing, but it was crucial and I had to get it right both times. Shooting for this movie was quite a fun experience.”
Commenting about her character, Shraddha Kapoor said, “I was super excited to play the role of a cop for the first time. It's such a privilege. The police do so much for the country and it's an honour for me to represent them on the big screen. As my character was of a cop, I got to perform some amazing action sequences, it was awesome. We also shot everything twice, so I was worried whether I would be able to get the same reaction in the shot in the other language. It was also difficult for other actors and technicians as well because we had to capture the whole mood again. Sometimes, it’s that spark, that you get in one go which works well for the shot. Hope the viewers enjoy watching ‘Saaho’ on &pictures’’’”
Set against the backdrop of Waaji city, Saaho narrates the story of the ultimate battle to gain complete power over the underworld. After the sudden death of Roy - the crime boss of Waaji, Devaraj who is the son of a former don announces himself as the next leader.
