Mumbai, Dec 2: Filmmaker Prashanth Neel’s upcoming underworld action thriller “Salaar”, featuring South star Prabhas, is set to release theatrically on April 14, 2022. Billed as a “pan-India” project, “Salaar” is produced by Hombale Films.
Neel, known for helming the blockbuster action movie franchise “KGF”, took to Twitter and shared the film’s poster with the release date. “Rebelling worldwide. #Salaar on April 14, 2022. We can’t wait to celebrate with you all,” the director wrote.
The film will see the “Baahubali” star play a “violent character”. When the project was announced in December last year, Prabhas had called “Salaar” a territory unexplored.
“This is a very exciting film and my character is extremely violent, so this is something I haven’t really done before. It’s a pan-Indian film and I can’t wait to be on the sets already,” the 41-year-old actor had said. Apart from “Salaar”, Prabhas will also be seen in filmmaker Nag Ashwin’s multilingual sci-fi film co-starring Deepika Padukone, Om Raut’s screen adaptation of the epic Ramayana “Adipurush” and romantic-drama “Radhe Shyam”, directed by Radha Krishna Kumar. Also starring Pooja Hegde, “Radhe Shyam” is set to release on July 30, this year.
