The teaser also revealed that Shraddha gets to display her shooting skills with her pistol. In fact, a synchronized gunfight sequence featuring her and Prabhas is one of the highlights of the teaser of Saaho.

Opening up about carrying a pistol in the film, she unveiled, "Throughout the shoot, I got so comfortable holding the gun that it almost started feeling like an extension of my body. On set, if I didn't have my weapon with me, I would always inquire about it. The fact that you have to use it responsibly was another thing and it's amazing that a police officer's mind is so sharp in terms of how they need to use the gun and in what situations."

Reports also suggest that the lead actor Prabhas took the lessons of Hindi language from Shraddha Kapoor for his Hindi dubbing. But the makers have decided that Shraddha Kapoor dialogues in the Telugu version will be dubbed because Tollywood fans are very particular about the diction of their language.

The two leads have decided to help each other with Hindi and Telugu respectively. Of course, the actors will have professional language tutors, but they still feel conversing in the language they are weak in will improve their grasp on it. As it is, Saaho will be shot in Hindi and Telugu languages simultaneously.
