Chennai, Oct 23 (IANS) The makers of upcoming multilingual action drama "Saaho" on Tuesday teased audiences with a special making video on the occasion of Prabhass birthday.
The video gives a glimpse of the lavish budget the makers have spent on action, which will be one of the highlights of the film.
The one and a half minute video shows the prep that has gone into choreographing the action sequences under the supervision of international stuntman Kenny Bates in Abu Dhabi where the team extensively shot for 30 days with over 400 crew members.
From bike chases to car and truck crashes, it appears like the team has pushed the envelope with respect to action.
We also get a quick glimpse of Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh in the video, which has been released as a birthday treat for Prabhas's fans.
Towards the end of the video, we see Prabhas walking out of a building in slow motion in an uber stylish avatar. Cut to the next shot, we see him zooming on a bike.
In his chat with IANS last year, director Sujeeth revealed that a major chunk of the film's budget will be spent on action.
"The scale on which it is being made, a major budget will be spent on some extravagant action scenes. Although it will be a commercial outing, we are attempting something new and I would like to keep that as a surprise element," Sujeeth had said.
Apart from Abu Dhabi, the film has also been shot across major locales in Europe.
The movie has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. While Sabu Cyril will take care of the production design, Madhie will crank the camera.
The film, being shot in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi, also stars Arun Vijay, Jackie Shroff, Mahesh Manjrekar, Chunky Pandey and Mandira Bedi in key roles.
A UV Creations production, "Saaho" is produced by Vamsi, Pramod and Vikram on a whopping budget of Rs 150 crore.
Noida, Oct 23 (IANS) The Noida police on Tuesday said they were working to nab a man, who was accused of trying to extort Rs 20 crore from Paytm founder with three others by threatening him to leak the confidential data, even as the company assured its customers that their details were protected with high-level security.
On Monday, the police arrested Sonia Dhawan, person secretary to Paytm Founder and CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma; her husband Rupak Jain; and Devendra Kumar, an employee at the company's administration department.
A fourth accused Rohit Chomal, a Kolkata resident, who is believed to have made the extortion calls from Thailand, is on the run.
Earlier, on the complaint made by Paytm Vice President Ajay Shekhar Sharma, who is the brother of the founder, a case was registered under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and Information and Technology Act against the four.
The police said that all the phone numbers concerned were under observation.
"We are minutely watching the activities on the same IP address through which the phone calls were made," a police officer said.
According to the First Information Report (FIR), Dhawan had been the personal secretary to the CEO for about 10 years and had access to all the files containing the financial data.
Paytm in its statement said, "All our consumer data is protected with the highest and most impenetrable levels of security."
"At this point, the law enforcement authorities are investigating this matter and we would like to respect the police investigation, and not comment further until the results of such investigation are known."
