Saaho in Hindi Gets UA With No Cuts, Running Time Of Nearly 3 Hours



With a running time of  2 hours 51 minutes , Saaho is all set to be a lengthy adventure for  the audience.

While the  Telugu and other South Indian  versions of  director  Sujeeth’s Saaho was certified  by the Central Board Of Film Certification(CBFC) last week, the Hindi was cleared as  late as  Monday, just days before release, leading to some last-minute anxiety in the team.

 Director Sujeeth, who will now switch off  until  after Saaho releases on Friday , says  it was an ordeal  to  ready all the  four versions for release. “Every version had to be submitted for censoring separately.  Luckily  we were cleared  with a  ‘UA’ and no cuts. Then began the process of uploading  all US prints, and sending  off local prints  in  four languages all across  the  country.”

Sujeeth   is now exhausted  beyond anything he had  imagined. “I am  switching  off my phone  now  until the  film releases and  going to sleep. I haven’t slept  for days and weeks. Whatever had to be done(to  Saaho) has been done.Now it is in the audiences’ hands. I just hope the film works  not just for my sake but Prabhas Sir’s sake and the producers’ sake.”

As  for the  film’s running-time Sujeeth  is confident that it will be no burden on the audience. “There is  not a dull moment in the length  and breath  of the narrative. If there  was, we’d have removed it,” Sujeeth assures us.
