As we reported earlier, the launching ceremony of ‘Salaar’ starring ‘Rebel Star’ Prabhas in the titular role took place this morning in Hyderabad and ‘Rocking Star’ Yash graced the occasion as the chief guest. Directed by ‘KGF’ fame Prashanth Neel, the shooting of the multilingual project is expected to kick-off towards the end of this month. Meanwhile, pictures and videos featuring Prabhas and Yash from the muhurat are going viral on social media along with hashtags like #SalaarSagaBegins. While the former looked uber cool in a white kurta, the latter appeared dashing in tee and jeans.
Billed as one of the most immaculate action films to be made in Indian cinema, Salaar will feature the ‘Baahubali’ actor in a dark, violent role and he is reportedly working out to build muscle and acquire a beefed-up look to fit the bill. In the first look poster of the high-octane action saga, he can be sporting a moustache and placing his left hand on an assault rifle. To be helmed as a pan-Indian project in multiple languages, the film will feature a popular actor as the antagonist and speculations are rife that handsome hunk John Abraham is in talks for the same.
About his association with Prabhas, Prashanth Neel said “I was drawn to his innocence. Prabhas exudes more innocence compared to most other actors. To draw out this innocence and show it on screen will be fantastic.” He also conveyed the meaning of Salaar as “It is a more colloquial word, so the meaning I will derive from it is commander-in-chief. The right hand man to a king, the general, is what I would say.”
While Prashanth is working on the final schedule of KGF: Chapter 2 starring Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Srinidhi Shetty, Prakash Raj and Raveena Tandon, Prabhas is occupied with the final schedule of ‘Radhe Shyam’ starring Pooja Hegde as the leading lady.
