From the makers of the blockbuster hit K.G.F., here comes another one, Salaar starring Prabhas. The filmmakers tweeted about it on its official Twitter page that the next glimpse from the film will be announced on 15th August at 12:58 PM IST, till then stay tuned!
Salaar is an upcoming Indian Telugu-language action film written and directed by Prashanth Neel, and produced by Vijay Kiragandur under Hombale Films. It stars Prabhas as the titular character alongside Shruti Haasan and Jagapathi Babu. The film was initially announced in December 2020.
Salaar was originally scheduled for a theatrical release on 14 April 2022 but was delayed due to production delays owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film is now planned to release in the second quarter of 2023.
Salaar is planned to originally release in Telugu in addition to dubbed versions in various Indian languages like Hindi, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
Salaar reportedly employed Dark Centric Theme (DCT) technology to shoot the film, making it the first Indian film to do so. As a result the film’s lighting pattern and color palette would be darker in color.
Approx. 30% of the shooting of the film was completed by March 2022 but it was halted due to the release of Prabhas’ Radhe Shyam and Neel’s K.G.F: Chapter 2, and was planned to be resumed in May. However, Prabhas underwent a knee surgery in March during his vacation in Spain, which further delayed the shoot. In June 2022, a new schedule began at Hyderabad’s Ramoji Film City with Prabhasand Haasan joining the sets.
The team also shot a 20-minute long action sequence in the middle of the sea, spending arond ₹10 croreson the particular scene.
