The film is made on a budget of ?300 crore, which includes the use of VFX. The film was shot in Hyderabad, Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Romania and other parts of Europe. The filming for the movie began in August 2017. Actors like Arun Vijay, Jackie Shroff, Lal, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mandira Bedi were roped in along with the leads, Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor. A better part of the budget was spend to shoot some action scenes for the film. Also, international stunt choreographer Kenny Bates has been zeroed in to supervise the major action scenes.

According to the producers of the film, the actress Shraddha Kapoor, for which Saaho marks her Telugu debut, has shot action sequences in the film with heavy weaponry.

An action sequence in the film which has to be featured in an exceptional long time in the screenplay of the film, was shot extensively near Burj Khalifa during this schedule, for which 25 crore from the budget had been allotted. Apparently, Prabhas had gone under rigorous training for the same. His preparation involved cardiovascular training, weight training and plyometric obstacle races.

Also, Saaho would feature some underwater sequences with Prabhas and for the same, Prabhas had learnt scuba diving. Directed by Sujeeth, the movie will feature Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh as the antagonist. Not only Neil, but TV and Bollywood actress Mandira Bedi, who is known for her grey roles on small screen, will play an out and out negative role in the film.

The music of the film was supposed to be composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, who opted out of the film after the director decided to feature additional songs by other composers in the soundtrack. The song composers are yet to be announced while Ghibran has been roped in for the background score. The lyrics will be written by Sri Mani in Telugu, Madhan Karky in Tamil, and Javed Akhtar in Hindi.
