Prabhas's 'Salaar' gets release date; to clash with Hrithik's 'Fighter'
Here's the update on Prabhas's Salaar we all have been waiting for. The makers of the film have finally announced its release date. The action drama will hit the theaters on September 28, 2023. Prashanth Neel, who directed the blockbuster KGF franchise, is helming this upcoming actioner. Read on to learn more about the latest development and more updates about Salaar.
Why does this story matter?
Prabhas's Baahubali 2: The Conclusion created worldwide records and gave him international fame. However, his films after Baahubali, namely Saaho and Radhe Shyam, turned out to be disappointments both critically and commercially. So, Salaar is an important one for the actor and his fans. Since Neel's KGF franchise made records at the box office and received positive feedback, hopes are high for Salaar.
What did the announcement say?
In the announcement shared by the makers, a new poster featuring Prabhas was revealed. In it, the Rebel Star was seen standing amidst what looks like a post-apocalyptic scene. He can be seen in a rugged outfit armed with weapons. In the background, one can see dead people, fire, fallen buildings, and aircraft. Sharing the poster, the makers wrote, "Rebelling worldwide on 28, 2023."
