Raja Saab: Prabhas’ First Out-and-Out Entertainer
Prabhas, who has been experimenting with different genres and roles, is doing a full-fledged entertainer for the first time in Raja Saab. The film, which is being directed by Maruthi, who is known for his comedy and family entertainers, is said to showcase Prabhas in a new avatar. The makers have revealed that Prabhas will sport a vintage look in the film, which will appeal to his fans and the masses. The film is also said to have a lot of humour, romance, and action elements.
The film has Nidhhi Agerwal and Malavika Mohanan as the female leads, who will be seen opposite Prabhas for the first time. Nidhhi Agerwal, who made her Telugu debut with Savyasachi, has been doing back-to-back films with top heroes, such as Akhil Akkineni, Ram Pothineni, and Naga Chaitanya. Malavika Mohanan, who is a popular actress in Tamil and Malayalam cinema, is making her Telugu debut with Raja Saab. She is also known for her bold and glamorous photoshoots. The film also has a strong supporting cast, including Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh, Vennela Kishore, and Srinivas Reddy.
Raja Saab: Release Date and Competition
Raja Saab, which has been in the making for a long time, was expected to release this year. However, due to various reasons, the film has been postponed to 2025 Sankranthi, according to producer TG Vishwa Prasad. He said that they will announce the exact release date once they finalize it. He also said that they are confident that the film will entertain the audience and perform well at the box office.
Raja Saab will face a tough competition at the 2025 Sankranthi box office, as several big films are lined up for release. Megastar Chiranjeevi’s socio-fantasy film, which is being directed by VV Vinayak, is also slated for Sankranthi release. Nagarjuna, who is currently hosting Bigg Boss Telugu Season 6, has also announced that he will release a film for Sankranthi.
