Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor joined hands for director Sujeeth’s Saaho, which is wreaking havoc at the box office in India. The film has grossed over Rs 200 crore in just two days and is still continuing its dream run at the box office.
As reported earlier, the real litmus test for Saaho has begun on Monday as it marks the end of the long weekend. Trade analyst Joginder Tejuja revealed that there was a 50% drop in the collection and the rough estimate of the Hindi version of Saaho stands at around Rs 13-14 crore.
However, apart from the first day box office numbers, nothing good has been discussed about the content of the movie. Prominent reviewers of Tamil cinema including Blue Satta Maaran and Sun Tv Suresh trolled the movie hilariously in their reviews.
In the same way of an online movie critic slammed the film by saying that it contained pathetic writing. Now to our shock, a french filmmaker has claimed that the movie is a copy of his 2008 released film Largo Winch.
Jerome Salle learned about the similarities between his film and Saaho after several Twitter users tagged him in posts pointing out the resemblance. In a tweet, Mr Salle called Saaho the “second freemake of Largo Winch” and called it is ‘as bad as the first one.’ Last year, Jerome Salle had accused Pawan Kalyan’s Agnyaathavaasi of plagiarizing Largo Winch (more on that later). The makers of Saaho are yet to respond to the allegations.
In a tweet posted on September 1, Jerome Salle wrote: “It seems this second “freemake” of Largo Winch is as bad as the first one. So please Telugu directors, if you steal my work, at least do it properly? And as my ‘Indian career’ tweet was of course ironic, I’m sorry but I’m not gonna be able to help.

Jerome Salle in 2018 alleged that Pawan Kalyan’s Agnathavaasi was also copied the same movie of him. He said that the main reason for #Agnyaathvaasi ‘s flop could be due to the director copying a film- Largo Winch, directed by Jerome Salle- was something that even
@PawanKalyan’s fans couldn’t digest.
