Saaho (2019) has become the first Telugu film to get a dedicated emoji on the micro-blogging platform. The official emoji for the upcoming mega action flick, starring Prabhas, was launched today on Twitter. The film is gearing up for release on 30 August.

The emoji has been launched for Saaho in all the languages the film is being released.

Saaho, which has been directed by Sujeeth, is Prabhas’s first release since Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017). The film has been predominantly shot abroad on a whopping budget and features never seen before action sequences.

The film also stars Arun Vijay, Jackie Shroff and Mandira Bedi in pivotal roles. The project marks the southern debut of Shraddha Kapoor, who will be seen in an action-packed role.

In a recent interview to the newspaper Times of India, Prabhas opened up on the experience of working in Saaho. He said he doesn’t want to another big scale film for next five years.

“Post Baahubali, I wanted to do a nice love story, but I didn’t get the right script. In the interim, director Sujeeth offered me this script, which was an out-and-out action film,” he said, and added that he didn’t expect the film to take two years.

“See, doing such big films does put pressure on you. In fact, I don’t want to do big films for at least another five years. With big films, the budget is high and a lot of things need to be in place. I don’t want to take such pressure for every film,” Prabhas added  

After the release of Saaho, Prabhas will begin shooting for his next Telugu project with director Radha Krishna Kumar. Dubbed Prabhas 20, the film is rumoured to be a period romantic drama and will co-star Pooja Hegde.
