Pan-India star Prabhas shared his experience of working with the film’s director Prashanth Neel in Salaar. The film will be released in theatres on December 22, 2023.
Talking about his experience working with Prashanth Neel, the Prabhas said, “Prashanth is a hero-director; as I said that I would come at this time, he was comfortable with that. Once actors come on the set, like me, Shruti, or Prithvi, there is no stopping anything. They just focused on our shots. This way, I never had to wait on the set, even though we used to tell them that, Prashanth, we would wait.”
He further added, “When I reached the first schedule, I don’t remember what time, but they stopped everything, saying that the entry of the hero had started and now we would only take the hero’s shots. Then I told him, No problem, I have waited for half of my films.”
Talking further about his transformation for the role. He said, “I haven’t done anything special; Prashanth wanted me to build muscles for the character, so I changed myself accordingly. This was a common thing for me. There was not much transformation that I have done in the last 21 years.”
Hombale Films, Salaar: Part 1: Ceasefire will star Prabhas along with Prithviraj Sukumaran, Shruti Haasan, and Jagapathi Babu. Made under the direction of Prashanth Neel, the film is produced by Vijay Kiragandur.
