The highly speculated Prabhas and Prashanth Neel collaboration was announced officially in December 2020. Fans of Prabhas have been speculating since weeks about a possible project, before the official announcement and Prashanth Neel and the Rebel Star’s meetings only strengthened the speculations. Hombale Films, the production house behind India’s biggest blockbuster the KGF series is bankrolling the project titled Salaar which will have Prabhas as the lead actor.
There has been no official announcement since then until today when the lead actress was announced. Hombale Films announced the addition of the multi talented Shruthi Haasan to the cast of Salaar. The official announcement finally put the speculations about Shruthi Haasan being roped in for Salaar to rest. The announcement also coincided with the birthday of Shruthi Haasan.
Wish you a very happy birthday @shrutihaasan 🎉

Earlier this month. Cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda, who has worked with Prashanth Neel on all his films, Ugramm, KGF: Chapter 1 and KGF: Chapter 2, was also roped in for Prabhas’ Salaar. Ever since the release of the first look, fans have been speculating about the meaning of the title. Director Prashanth Neel said He said, “As far as the film is concerned, it means commander-in-chief. You can say that a Salaar is the right hand man to a king. He is the general (sic.)” Salaar is touted to be an underworld action drama and Prabhas is said to be seen in a never seen actioner.
We at Telugu Filmnagar wish Shruthi Haasan a very happy birthday and hope for multiple hits this year.
