There are reports that the film, which was initially scheduled to release in September, may see some rescheduling. Directed by Prashanth Neel, known for his work in action-packed entertainers, the film’s trailer was expected to be released in August but never arrived.
Graphics work causing delay?
The release date for Salaar has been also likely been pushed by another 27 days. The production team has cited issues with completing graphics work and plans to complete it by September 28. As a result, there is uncertainty about the movie’s release date. Director Prashanth Neel is reportedly unhappy with the delay too.
With a substantial budget of ₹200 crore and Prabhas playing the role of a gangster, the film has garnered significant attention. In Salaar, Malayalam star Prithviraj Sukumaran plays the antagonist. Jagapathi Babu, Shruti Haasan, and Teenaa Anand also have pivotal roles. There is also news of a sequel in the works, with Jagapathi Babu’s character appearing prominently in the second part.
