Prabhas and Prithviraj Sukumaran starrer Salaar has hit the theatres today, December 22.

Speaking to Galatta, when Prithviraj was asked about Salaar's clash with Dunki, he reminded the audience that there's a third film, which is a Mohanlal-Jeethu Joseph film Neru. He added that it's an "iconic actor-director combo reuniting after Drishyam 2". So for them, it's three big films hitting the theatres on the same day.
"For me personally, before being an actor, before being a director, before being a producer, distributor, or anything else, I am first a film lover. And, this has genuinely got to be one of the greatest holiday seasons in recent memory. I'm watching all three. I'm for sure watching all three. I absolutely adore the brand of cinema Rajkumar Hirani sir makes," he added.
Speaking about Salaar director Prashanth Neel, he said, "I think, is an iconic filmmaker. Prabhas is one of the biggest stars in the country. And, then from where I'm from, it doesn't get bigger than Mohanlal and Jeethu Joseph."
Dunki and Neru released together in the theatres on December 21, while Salaar hit the theatres today, December 22.

Earlier, in a candid chat with SS Rajamouli on Hombale Films' YouTube channel, Prashanth admitted to his "OCD with monochrome," realizing the striking similarity between KGF and Salaar post-sharing their trailers and teasers. Explaining his preference for monochrome, Prashanth highlighted its role in conveying the gritty essence of his cinematic world. He clarified that the visual resonance between KGF and Salaar was coincidental, refuting any deliberate connection between the two cinematic worlds.
