Prabhas thought Saaho will be a delight for his fans and said that people who loved Baahubali will be satisfied with this one. In North markets, yes. But in South India, movie failed miserably.
Now, the actor is looking at Jaan, his next film, a romantic entertainer with fantasy period elements from 1970’s, in a new light. He wants to shed some weight and also get skin detox, to look his best.
As this is a romantic drama, he cannot let the comments that he faced for his looks in Saaho slide. Hence, he is taking 2 months off from the shoot and will start shooting from November in Hyderabad. For the film, huge sets are being erected to resemble Europe of the time period and most of the fantasy elements will have minimal but breathtaking VFX, it seems.
Prabhas already started the strict diet and rigorous workout to change his look, for the film. Pooja Hegde will finish her Ala Vaikuntapuramulo shoot by the time and will give full time dedicated to Jaan for 3 to 4 months, say sources.
