Prithviraj Sukumaran as Vardharaja Mannaar

Prabhas will next grace the silver screens with Prashanth Neel's directorial Salaar. Apart from him, Prithviraj Sukumaran will also play the role of Vardharaja Mannaar in the movie. As the Bro Daddy star is celebrating his 40th birthday today, the makers have unveiled the character poster from the drama.

Dropping the intimidating poster, director Prashanth Neel wrote on Instagram, "Birthday Wishes to the most versatile @therealprithvi, Presenting 'Vardharaja Mannaar' from #Salaar." He looks raw and intimidating in the dark look. Prithviraj Sukumaran's penetrating gaze will also send shivers down your spine.

Check out the first look poster below:

In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, leading lady Shruti Haasan shared her excitement about working on Salaar, “I’m really really excited being a part of these projects because of the characters I’m playing and people I’m working with. I loved Prashant sir’s work in KGF and I think he really creates a special world that you get a grand feeling as an audience and actor."

Made under the direction of Prashanth Neel, Vijay Kiragandur has backed the project under the banner of Hombale Films. Jagapathi Babu, Madhu Guruswamy, and Easwari Rao are also playing prominent roles in the action entertainer, apart from others.

Refreshing your memory, Salaar was originally slated to release in theatres on 14 April this year, however, the venture got delayed as the production work took longer than speculated because of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. Now, the much-awaited drama will be hitting the cinema halls on 28th September 2023.

Vijay Kiragandur from Hombale Films also revealed during an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, “We have set the bar very high for Salaar. On one hand, we have Prabhas, who is the hero of India’s number one movie (Bahubali 2) and on the other hand, we have Prashanth Neel and Hombale, who made the second biggest film of India (KGF 2). This is a deadly combination and it’s going to be a big challenge. The combination has created the buzz and now, since we have set the bar so high, we will try our best to reach the target. We will achieve something big with Salaar.”
