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.
Other stars of the film industry also showed their support by sharing ‘Salaar’ post.
