Following the mammoth success of the KGF franchise, director Prashanth Neel has become one of the most sought after filmmakers, down South. With his next biggie 'Salaar' bringing the likes of Prabhas and Prithviraj Sukumaran together on-screen for the first time, the excitement is palpable.

On Sunday, the filmmaker celebrated his 43rd birthday with wishes pouring in from leading actors and technicians in the Southern industries. Prithviraj took the time out from his schedule to pen a heartfelt note for his beloved director.

Taking to social media and wishing Neel, a happy birthday, the 'Aadujeevitham' actor wrote, "Happy birthday Prashanth! There is so little of you the world has seen till now..and I know the year ahead will be a teaser of what is to follow! It's been an absolute privilege to be working with you..and I cannot wait for what is ahead."

Besides Prabhas and Prithviraj, 'Salaar' also stars Shruti Haasan, Jagapathi Babu and Easwari Rao among others.

The film will be produced by Hombale Films, the banner that brought to us the 'KGF' franchise and Kantara. Ravi Basrur has been roped in as the composer for the film's soundtrack. The film is scheduled for theatrical release on September 28, 2023 in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
