Salaar US box office: Prabhas' film becomes highest premiere grosser in States in 2023
Salaar is poised to have not just a huge opening in the US but the North American market may turn out to be a major contributor to its global box office.
Prabhas starrer Salaar is releasing worldwide on December 22. In the US, the Prashanth Neel directorial has elicited a good response. The movie has become the highest USA premiere grosser for any Indian film in 2023, leaving behind the likes of Leo, Jailer, Jawan and Animal. With these huge figures, Salaar is poised to have not just a huge opening in the US but the North American market may turn out to be a major contributor to its global box office business.
Salaar breaks pre-booking records in the US
Salaar has minted $1.81 million+ and sold over 70,000 tickets in the US ahead of its release on December 22. The pan-India film is not releasing in IMAX format in the US like earlier but still, the film is getting good response from the audience in North America. Surely, the film is on track to become one of the biggest hits of 2023 in the US and India.
Prashanth Neel talks about Salaar storyline
Prashanth Neel has described Salaar as a story about friends, played by Prabhas and Prithviraj Sukumaran respectively. Talking about his next directorial after KGF, the director shared, "Salaar is a completely different world; the action in the film is massive and there are strong characters, but above all, it has an emotional story -- the story of two friends and their journey into the world of the Khansaar. I wanted to make an action-packed drama film with a story driven by emotions and friendship, and Salaar has given me that opportunity.”
Produced by Hombale Films, Salaar: Part 1: Ceasefire is set to arrive in theatres on December 22 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. The film also stars Shruti Haasan, Eshwari Rao, Jagapathi Babu and Sriya Reddy.
