Following the spectacular debut, Prabhas starrer Salaar experienced a drop of over 60 per cent on its second day.
Prabhas-starrer Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire has etched its name in the annals of Indian cinema history with a groundbreaking opening at the box office.

Salaar domestic box office collection day 2
Following the spectacular debut, Salaar experienced a drop of over 60 per cent on its second day, still managing to amass an impressive Rs 55 crore on Saturday, as per early estimates by industry tracker Sacnilk. The cumulative box office collection in India now stands at Rs 145.70 crores.
Salaar global box office collection day 2
On its first day, Salaar earned Rs 179 crore. This figure surpasses the global opening day earnings of Prabhas' previous film, Adipurush, which grossed Rs 140 crores. Salaar outshone other major releases this year, including Jawan and Pathan, Vijay's Leo, and Rajinikanth's Jailer.
Salaar vs Dunki
In a theatrical showdown, Salaar clashed with Taapsee Pannu's Dunki, which hit screens on December 21, a day before Salaar's release. While Dunki struggles with approximately Rs 75 crore in domestic revenue within three days, Salaar's dominance continues with a commendable 75.64 per cent Telugu occupancy on Saturday.
Prabhas' redemption with Salaar
For Prabhas, Salaar marks a crucial juncture in his career. Following the monumental success of the Baahubali films, his subsequent ventures, including Saaho, Radhe Shyam, and Adipurush, faced challenges at the box office. Salaar emerges as a potential comeback, with the actor eyeing redemption after a series of high-profile disappointments.
Beyond Salaar, Prabhas is set to star in Kalki 2898 AD, touted as the most expensive Indian film ever produced. Additionally, he will headline Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Spirit and revisit the role of Salaar in a second installment.
