Now, the makers of the upcoming film have dropped the first-look poster of the Abhilash Joshiy directorial, though its release date is still under wraps.
Why does this story matter?

Where else will we see Salmaan next?
Salmaan will soon be seen in Raj & DK's Netflix web series Guns & Gulaabs, a retro action thriller. Moreover, Othiram Kadakam was announced in 2021, but its buzz gradually died down, with reports suggesting it may have been shelved. However, director Soubin Shahir confirmed it would see fruition and intersperse horror and comedy elements. Salmaan also has Bilal—starring his father Mammootty—in the pipeline.
