Salaar is written and directed by Prashanth Neel, who shot to fame with the release of period drama KGF: Chapter 1 in 2018.
“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,” Prabhas had said while talking about the film earlier.
The makers of Salaar, however, are yet to reveal details regarding the remaining cast and crew of the movie.
Prashanth recently completed the shoot of his much-anticipated directorial KGF: Chapter 2. The film is currently in the post-production stage and is all set to hit screens later this year.
Prabhas also has a slew of other big-budget movies in the pipeline, including romantic film Radhe Shyam, mythological drama Adipurush and an untitled science-fiction drama with director Nag Ashwin of Mahanati fame.
