There is news that the makers of ‘Salaar’ are going to release Prabhas’ film on 22nd December. Prashant Neel has once defeated Shahrukh Khan in a clash.

A lot of confusion has arisen in the market regarding Prabhas’ Salaar. Recently news came that Prashanth Neel is not happy with some parts of the film. That’s why they are reshooting the climax. It was also said that a lot of VFX work was left. Now it is being told that ‘Salaar’ will be released on 22nd December. Shahrukh Khan’s Dunki is scheduled for release on the same day.
‘Salaar’ was earlier scheduled to release on September 28. But at the last moment the makers postponed the film. It was said that the new release date will be announced soon. Then news came that the makers were considering Diwali weekend for ‘Salaar’. Salman Khan’s ‘Tiger 3’ is being released in the same week. Then a new date came out. It was said that Prabhas’s film could hit the theaters on November 2.
Now news is coming that the distributors of ‘Saalar’ have sent an e-mail to the exhibitors across the country. It is told that ‘Saalar’ is going to be released on 22nd December. Prepare accordingly. But on this date, Shahrukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani had announced the release of their film ‘Dinky’ much earlier. He also confirmed the same release date of the film in a recent event. In such a situation, if the makers of ‘Salaar’ choose this date, then it will be very difficult for ‘Dinky’. Because ‘Dinky’ is being released only in Hindi. Whereas ‘Salaar’ is a pan-India film. Apart from Hindi, it will also be released dubbed in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam languages.
However, there is a catch in this too. The exhibitors are thinking that ‘Salaar’ will indeed release on December 22. Or the makers want to find out the market environment. Meaning whether this date will be right for them or not. If they bring ‘Saalar’ on this date, what will be the reaction of the public? How much will Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Dinky’ influence him?
All these news are coming from inside. The makers of ‘Salaar’ have not officially announced any release date yet. Just today the news came that Prashant Neel is not satisfied with the climax of ‘Salaar’. He wants to make this the biggest film of his career. Therefore, he put forward the idea of reshooting some parts of the film. The producers also agreed. A separate budget sanction was made for this. It was also claimed in many reports that Prashant Neel has started a 10-day schedule in Hyderabad. However, in this reshoot the scenes of the lead actors are not being filmed again.
It was also said that 600 VFX shots of ‘Salaar’ are still pending. This means that the company which is doing the VFX of this film has not yet given 600 shots to the makers of the film. Work is still going on on that.
If indeed ‘Saalar’ releases on December 22, then what will happen to ‘Dinky’, only time will be able to tell. Prashant Neel has once defeated Shahrukh in the box office clash. In 2018, Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Zero’ and Yash starrer KFG, both were released on 21 December. ‘Zero’ earned Rs 90.28 crore from across the country. The worldwide collection of the film was around Rs 186 crore. Whereas Prashant Neel directed KFG Chapter 1 earned Rs 185 crore from India. The worldwide collection of the film was around Rs 238 crore. It is also believed that ‘Zero’ suffered a lot due to the clash with KGF 1.
Now history is going to repeat itself with ‘Saalar’ vs ‘Dinky’. Let’s see which side the camel sits on this time.
