Prabhas & Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho, that hit the theatres on 30th August is kicking up a storm on social media. Such is the craze of Prabhas, who plays the male lead in the Sujeeth directorial, that his fans have placed huge cutouts outside theaters in Hyderabad. Not stopping at that, some of them were even seen showering the cutout of Prabhas with milk & offering floral garlands while dancing to the beats of dhol. Amidst all this fan frenzy, something unwanted happened.
Below is the sequence of events.
An ardent fan of Prabhas hailing from Mahbubnagar in Telangana was putting up a huge banner of Prabhas’ Saaho outside one of the theaters, along with his friends, unaware of the fact that these will be the last moments of his life.
A video has gone viral on social media, which seems to have been captured by one of the onlookers.
Have a look at the video here:

An IndiaToday report suggests that while the fan was making an attempt to fix the banner of Saaho, somehow he happened to come in contact with an electrical wire. And he got electrocuted that caused his tragic fall to death from the theatre building. The theatre officials called the cops to investigate into the matter.
As of now, neither Prabhas, nor anybody else from Saaho makers have issued any statement in reaction to the incident of Prabhas fan’s untimely demise.
Saaho has Prabhas playing an undercover agent & Shraddha Kapoor essaying the role of a police officer. The movie, which has been reportedly made at a budget of over Rs 300 crore, is creating quite a lot of buzz online. While the critics and a lot of fans seem to be disappointed by the film, there’s no stopping the crazy fan frenzy created by the ardent fans of Baahubali: Prabhas.
