What happens when the Baahubali actor is directed by the KGF director? The stakes are really high. The stakes are enormous, and the film is expected to be the biggest event in Indian cinema in 2023.
At this moment in time, Prashanth Neel, the director of the two KGF mega-hits, is India’s most sought-after filmmaker. Following the release of KGF – Chapter 2 on April 14, the film appears to be on track to break all box office records by collecting more than Rs. 500 crore by the end of May. Prashanth Neel has moved on to his next project, Salaar, which stars Prabhas from Baahubali. Salaar will be dramatically enhanced following the huge success of KGF Chapter 2.
Producer Vijay Kiragandur has reportedly chosen to increase the budget significantly in order to make the picture more stunning and epic in scale. Following the failure of Radhe Shyam, where Prabhas had few action scenes that Prabhas’ fans like to see him do, more action sequences are reportedly being added to Salaar.
Prabhas, who suffered a major defeat in Radhe Shyam, is in desperate need of a magical touch in his career. Salaar might be the pan-India breakthrough he’s been waiting for since Baahubali.
Salaar was set to be released on April 14, 2022, the same day when Prashanth Neel’s KGF – Chapter 2 was finally released. The pandemic caused Salaar to be delayed, which turned out to be a gift in disguise. The product can now be upgraded to reflect the director’s unique box office success.
