The makers of “Salaar” are facing considerable uncertainty regarding the film’s release date. Given the substantial investment involved and the film’s multi-language release, they are struggling to determine the ideal release date. Netflix has secured the digital rights to the film and has proposed a November release, but this suggestion is met with resistance from the distributors.
The primary focus of the makers is on the Hindi and Telugu theatrical markets. However, Telugu producers and distributors are opposed to a Christmas or Sankranthi release due to the crowded lineup of other films during those periods. They are now proposing a release in 2024, as buyers are hesitant to pay hefty sums for “Salaar” if it premieres outside of a holiday season. Additionally, there is a special song featuring Prabhas that still needs to be filmed, and this will occur once Prabhas returns from Europe.
There are also rumors circulating that director Prashanth Neel is considering reshooting certain portions of the film. Currently, there are numerous obstacles to overcome before “Salaar” can proceed. This high-octane action film is directed by Prashanth Neel and produced by Hombale Films, starring Prabhas and Shruti Haasan in lead roles.
