Actor Prabhas is a superstar at the moment, courtesy the unmatched success of ‘Baahubali’ franchise, in the last three years. So, it’s obvious that whatever next film he does will be the matter of curiosity for all his die-hard fans.

The actor is shooting for his next project, titled, Saaho, opposite Shraddha Kapoor, and for which, he is in UAE these days.

But recently, he did something incredible which no other actor has ever done in the history-not even in Bollywood!

Prabhas just shot the most expensive action sequence ever in Indian film industry, which cost around Rs.90 crore, and for this scene, apparently 37 cars, SUVs and 5 trucks were crashed-authentically-in real!

A twitter post yesterday showed the actor during the expensively shot sequence.

When asked in an interview, the actor himself told the reason behind this vast scale of the action scene in the film.

“We had a plan and we went to action director Kenny Bates two years back. Kenny came to Abu Dhabi for recce and he loved the location. He wanted to shoot everything live. Almost 90% of whatever that we are going to show on screen is real. He wanted to show the real cars. He wanted the real cars to fly. We crashed around 27 cars and five trucks. We wanted everything real instead of going for CGI as it gives a real impact. Generally, you have 70% CG and 30% real but over here in Abu Dhabi, we opted for a more real shoot. This will be something that no one has seen before”.

The actor also thanked the support from UAE government, regarding the film locations.

“I’ve been impressed at the level of support we’ve received from twofour54, the local crew, the fans, and the government, who are all going out of their way to make things as smooth as possible”.
