Prabhas' next big collaboration is with KGF fame director Prashanth Neel in Salaar. The actor recently shared that Malayalam superstar and filmmaker Prithviraj Sukumaran will be a part of Salaar. He refrained from commenting on the nature of his role but confirmed his presence in the film. Sukumaran has also dubbed Radhe Shyam in the Malayalam version and Prabhas thanked him for the same in one of his media addresses.

Billed as a "pan India" project and produced by Hombale Films, the film will see Prabhas play a "violent character". At the time of the film announcement, the Telugu actor said Salaar has provided him with an exciting opportunity to delve into a role he hasn't played before. "This is a very exciting film and my character is extremely violent, so this is something I haven't really done before. It's a pan-Indian film and I can't wait to be on the sets already," he had said.

"We are all geared up to present one of a kind actioner to our audiences. They are definitely going to see Prabhas in a never seen before avatar, which am confident cinema fans will love," director Prashanth Neel added on Salaar.

Meanwhile, Prashanth's next directorial KGF: Chapter 2 is all set to hit the cinema screens on April 14. The trailer of the Yash and Sanjay Dutt-starrer will be launched on March 27.
