Prabhas is thrilled to be a part of 'Salaar'
Salaar has been written and directed by Neel, who shot to fame with the blockbuster crime drama KGF: Chapter 1. Talking about the project, Prabhas had earlier said, "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 (sic)."
'Saalar' was launched in Hyderabad earlier this month
The makers of Salaar had marked the beginning of the year by launching the movie in Hyderabad. Apart from Prabhas, KGF star Yash as well as Baahubali director SS Rajamouli were also present at the much-publicized launch event.
What else is in the pipeline for Prabhas and Haasan?
Apart from Salaar, Prabhas also has Radhe Shyam coming up. The movie, starring Pooja Hegde alongside Prabhas, is a romantic drama written and directed by Radha Krishna Kumar. He was last seen in Saaho, co-starring Shraddha Kapoor. Haasan, on the other hand, was last seen in Krack, co-starring Ravi Teja. It was released on January 9, and has been successful at the box office.
