Prabhas shot to national fame with the Rajamouli’s directorial Baahubali series and followed it up with Saaho directed by Sujeeth. Saaho truly cemented Prabhas’s reputation as a pan Indian actor as it brought together Prabhas with Bollywood’s Shraddha Kapoor and Sujeeth’s vision which was splendidly complemented by stunning visuals. Saaho also had a song titled Bang Bang which has kind of become an anthem for coolness quotient which was sung by Mercy.
In an Instagram question and answer activity done by Mercy, a fan asked her thoughts on Prabhas to which she replied saying Prabhas is a phenomenal actor, a genuine and a kind person. Moreover, Mercy also said it was an honour to work with Prabhas. Mercy shared a video of her song Bang Bang with snippets from Saaho with a message thanking the makers for giving her the opportunity to work on the movie. Prabhas also thanked Mercy on behalf of Team Saaho for giving a killer song!

Dear @ohhavemercy , Today, as we celebrate #1YearOfSaaho, I would like to give a shoutout to this super cool song ‘Bang Bang’ made by you. A big thank you from me and team #Saaho 😊👊🏻🔥 @shraddhakapoor @sujeethsign @neilnitinmukesh @apnabhidu @chunkypanday @arunvijayno1 @mandirabedi @maheshmanjrekar @sharma_murli @vennelakish @uvcreationsofficial @bhushankumar @tseries.official @officialsaahomovie
The film told the story of power play over a crime empire with Prabhas playing a character with shades of grey. While the film’s story was a memorable ride, one of the most intriguing parts of Saaho was also the top notch action sequences.
Saaho was directed by Sujeeth and had an ensemble cast from South and Bollywood. Actors like Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Chunky Panday, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay, Murali Sharma and Vennela Kishore among many others played a pivotal role in the film.
