Massive word is synonymous with Prabhas films and “Bahubali” was a perfect example. So when we heard that over 90 crores were spent on a particular action scene of upcoming film “Sahoo” in Abu Dhabi, it was not surprising since this is what his films known for,- massive, made on a grand and colossal scale. The action scene is said to be one of the principal attraction of the film.

The stunt was performed under the supervision of well known international stuntman Kenny Bates. The best thing about the scenes is that the audience will be seeing the car crashes in real.

The crash scene involves cars and trucks. “Sahoo” will be the second Indian film which is being shot in Abu Dhabi after Salman Khan’s “Tiger Zinda hai.” Abu Dhabi was an ideal location because of its breathtaking landscapes with ample open space and sparse population.

The Gulf country was laying out the red carpet for a film industry which makes the most significant number of feature films in the world. The team along with Prabhas was a little apprehensive in the beginning because it was the beginning of the holy festival Ramadan.

However, the Abu Dhabi authorities were very helpful and went out of the way to help their team film the action sequences by vacating certain roads for long periods of time.

Prabhas and his team were very grateful to the Abu Dhabi authorities and said that they would come again in future.

“Sahoo” is one of the most anticipated action films and is being made in three languages.

The crew recently shot the action-packed chase scene which involved more than 37 cars and five trucks. Prabhas revealed that real cars and trucks were used and there will be no Computer Generated images.

The shoot continued for fifty days and involved 250 crew members, and it will become the second longest Indian Movie after "Tiger Zinda Hai" last year.

The action sequence itself took more than 20 days to shoot.
