Can't wait to watch Prabhas on the big screen again after kicking up a storm in the Baahubali movies?

Well, here's some good news.

The actor posted the first look of his next film, Saaho, and announced its release date on August 11.

Directed by Sujeeth, the spy thriller co-stars Shraddha Kapoor.

The poster has Prabhas's intense eyes trained on you, in an avatar that looks drastically different from his period Baahubali look.

The film will release along with real life dramas, Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal and John Abraham's Batla House.

Meanwhile, the plans for Saaho are getting bigger by the week.

One hears that the producers plan to release the film in multiple languages, including Hindi, thereby solving the long-standing question of Prabhas's Bollywood debut.

A source tells Subhash K Jha, "There were some, not too many, good offers for Prabhas from Bollywood, including one from Karan Johar. But Prabhas was not convinced that these offers would justify his star status. Saaho, on the other hand, is a project Prabhas has full control of."

Apparently, the producers and Director Sujeeth have been in consultation with Prabhas over every aspect of the film, big or small.

"Not a leaf stirs in Saaho without Prabhas's permission. He has now decided to do an independent Hindi version of the film and is working on the accent so that he sounds convincing in Hindi," says the source.

A Chinese version is also being planned.

"The action scenes in Saaho have turned out to be on par with the best Hollywood films. They are looking at releasing Saaho on a far bigger level than Baahubali," says the source.

We hear a guest appearance by a Bollywood superstar, probably Salman Khan, is also being planned.
