Directed by Prashanth Neel, renowned for his work on the blockbuster ‘KGF,’ ‘Salaar’ boasts an ensemble cast including Prithviraj Sukumaran and Shruti Haasan in leading roles.
The Shift to November: Official Confirmation
The news about ‘Salaar’ changing its release date was confirmed by film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who took to social media to provide an official update. He stated, “Prabhas: ‘SALAAR’ to arrive in Nov… #Salaar is NOT arriving on 28 Sept 2023, it’s OFFICIAL now… The post-production work of this #Prabhas starrer is going on in full swing… #HombaleFilms – the producers – are bringing the film in Nov 2023… New release date soon.”
Earlier reports had hinted at a potential December release due to ongoing post-production work. Taran Adarsh had previously tweeted, “Those asking, yes, #Salaar is postponed. #Prabhas.”
A Glimpse into ‘Salaar’
Directed by Prashanth Neel and produced by Vijay Kiragandur of Hombale Films, the same production house behind the successful ‘KGF’ franchise, ‘Salaar’ has been the talk of the town. With an approximate budget of ₹200 crore, the film promises a grand spectacle.
The production team constructed 14 sets for the film’s shoot at Ramoji City in Hyderabad, underlining the scale and ambition of the project. ‘Salaar’ is set to release in five languages, including Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Hindi.
The Cast and Teaser
‘Salaar’ features an ensemble cast that includes Prithviraj Sukumaran, known for his versatile acting, and the talented Shruti Haasan. The film’s teaser had previously generated significant buzz, with glimpses of the fearless Tinnu Anand and the majestic Prabhas as the “king of the jungle.” While Prithviraj Sukumaran made an appearance, Shruti Haasan was conspicuously absent, adding an element of mystery to her character.
Reshuffling Release Dates
The rescheduling of ‘Salaar’ has had a domino effect on other film releases.
