The much-anticipated film Salaar is finally in theaters now. The film is receiving good reviews from the viewers. Salaar was one of the biggest films of 2023 as it was Baahubali star Prabhas' second release in the year after Adipurush. What also skyrocketed people's expectations is the association of the KGF's famed director Prashanth Neel. While today marks the opening day of the film in theaters, buzz around the film's digital rights is now doing the rounds on social media.

Salaar sold its digital rights to Netflix

With the rising popularity of Over The Top platforms, it's always interesting to see who among the biggest OTT players bags the rights to big-budgeted films. Most of these films are usually available for streaming on either Netflix, Prime Video, or Disney Plus Hotstar, rarely ZEE5 after its theatrical run. According to reports, Netflix has bought digital rights of the Prabhas starrer.  After its theatrical run, the film will be available to stream on Netflix for its subscribers.

Netflix, previously, had also bagged the rights to another big-budgeted blockbuster film Leo, starring Thalapathy Vijay and Trisha Krishnan. The film was directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj.

What is Salaar all about?

Salaar is one of the most hyped projects of the production house Hombale Films, the house that is responsible for giving hits such as KGF, KGF chapter 2, and Kantara among others. The film is directed by Prashanth Neel and also stars Prithviraj Sukumaran and Shruti Haasan in the lead roles. The film is said to be inspired by Prashanth Neel's first directorial film Ugramm. There were also speculations that the film is connected to the Kannada film KGF starring Yash, with many speculating the actor's cameo in Salaar.
