SAAHO in Tirol
Innsbruck, the Capital of the Alps has provided the perfect backdrop for one of Bollywood’s most anticipated films of the year.
Saaho is set to hit screens worldwide next month and several locations across Innsbruck and the Tirol region were chosen to feature in the action thriller. The lead duo, Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor – along with choreographer, Vaibhavi Merchant, and crew – travelled to the city to shoot the final schedule of the multilingual film.
Prabhas said: “Shooting in Innsbruck and Tirol region of Austria, was one of the most incredibly awesome experiences I have ever had.”
The contrast of the breath-taking landscapes with the imperial city centre was what attracted the team to shoot across Innsbruck, as well as the House of Music, the tram network, the aDLERS Hotel and the Finstertal lake in Kühtai. One of the film’s songs was also recorded at the renowned ‘Top of Tyrol’ viewing platform at the Stubai Glacier.
Peter Unsinn, Head of Market Management at Innsbruck Tourism, said: “It was a great privilege to host the cast and crew of Saaho in Innsbruck. Increasingly production companies are recognising the unique imperial and alpine features of the city, which make it a distinctive destination for film sets. Last year movie lovers were able to see the Innsbruck region in Tiger Zinda Hai with Salman Khan and this year with Saaho, we continue this success story.”
Pramod Uppalapati, the producer of Saaho, said: “The shooting locations in Austria were the most spectacular ones, where we managed to capture some breath-taking shots for our film.”
