Salaar: Part 1 - Ceasefire, featuring Prabhas in the lead role, is scheduled for release in theaters on December 22, 2023. The movie, written and directed by Prashanth Neel, the director of KGF, has been generating anticipation for quite some time.
Reportedly, the film has recently undergone the censorship process, securing an A certificate with a runtime of 2 hours and 55 minutes. Additional information was also disclosed regarding another trailer and an imminent event associated with the film.
Previously, another film in Prabhas' filmography, titled Mirchi, also received an A certificate. Released in 2013, the movie featured Anushka Shetty and Richa Gangopadhyay in prominent roles. Regarded as a pivotal moment in Prabhas' career, the film garnered widespread acclaim and is recognized as one of his finest works.
Despite the film not extensively venturing into promotional activities so far, there are reports suggesting the possibility of a second trailer being revealed in the coming week. Additionally, there is anticipation for the release of a song from the film's soundtrack.
According to industry insiders, there is a perception in the trade that Prabhas is proceeding with caution, especially considering that his recent films such as Saaho, Radhe Shyam, and Adipurush did not perform well at the box office. For this reason, additional reports indicate that, at present, there may not be any pre-release events for the film, which could potentially disappoint many of the actor's fans.
