Actor Prabhas has an additional reason to celebrate his 38th birthday with a bash. The first look of his upcoming spy thriller Saaho was released by the makers on Twitter, on the occassion of their leading man's special day.

The first look features the actor emerging from a foggy London street. Dressed in an all black ensemble, the actor stares fiercely into the camera, while continuing a conversation on a cellphone. The actor's hidden profile adds to the mystery of his character, while his kohl-lined eyes underline the cold nature of his profession.

The poster carries a mysterious look, and builds up on the character of its leading man quite effectively. The film marks Prabhas's first appearance on screen since the blockbuster Baahubali series under SS Rajamouli. The film also stars a fleet of actors from Hindi cinema.

Making her debut in Telugu cinema, Shraddha Kapoor will be seen opposite Prabhas. Neil Nitin Mukesh plays the lead antagonist, while Mahesh Manjrekar, Chunky Pandey, and Mandira Bedi will make supporting appearances.

Saaho is being shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages, and will feature several high octane action sequences.

Directed by Sujeeth, the film is co-produced by UV Creations and Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, and will be released in 2018.
