The postponement of Prabhas’ Salaar has brought great disappointment to not just Prabhas’ fans but the entire industry including the trade circles. The distributors who bought the movie for record rates were hoping to make good profits with the movie considering the weekend followed by the Gandhi Jayanti holiday that followed.
Such was the date’s benefit that a number of films that earlier were avoiding the clash with Salaar and were set to release in early September or mid-October moved their release to 28th September.
Now with the movie postponed, the crucial date has gone out of their hands. According to reports, the makers are focussing on a similarly good date. If these reports are to be believed, Salaar won’t be released this year. The distributors have been informed by Hombale Films that Salaar is now aiming for a release in Summer 2024.
This means that the fans will now have to wait for a lot longer to catch Prabhas in an out-and-out mass role in Prashanth Neel’s direction. Salaar is another pan-India biggie from Prabhas and also stars Shruti Haasan, Jagapathi Babu, and Prithviraj Sukumaran in key roles. Hombale Films is backing this prestigious Prashanth Neel film which will see a combination of Brand Baahubali and Brand KGF- two of the biggest blockbuster film franchises in Indian cinema history.
