The creators of the acclaimed "KGF: Chapter 1 & 2" and visionary director Prashanth Neel, the much-anticipated film "Salaar" has unleashed its official trailer, promising an exhilarating journey beyond the ordinary. The powerhouse talents of Rebel Star Prabhas, Prithviraj, Shruthi Haasan, Tinu Anand, Eshwari Rao, Jagapathi Babu, Sriya Reddy, and Garuda Ram take center stage in this gripping narrative.

Directed by Prasanth Neel and produced by Hombale Films, the teaser offers a tantalizing glimpse into the intense storyline and mind-blowing visuals that await the audience. Set to hit screens on December 22, 2023, Prabhas takes on the role of Salaar, emerging as the most formidable force on screens this year.

Notably, the nearly 4-minute-long trailer intricately weaves the tale of two childhood friends, bound by a promise of unwavering support. However, the true entry of Prabhas into the narrative is strategically reserved until the final minute of the trailer, adding to the anticipation.

The storyline unfolds in Khansaar, a kingdom shaped by the union of three tribes with a notorious past as part of a deadly dacoit group spanning a thousand years. Raja Mannar, played by the versatile Jagapathi Babu, rules the city and aspires to see his son Varadha Raja Mannar, portrayed by Prithviraj, ascend to the throne.

The plot thickens with conspiracies and power struggles involving characters portrayed by BS Avinash, Sriya Reddy, Bobby Simha, and John Vijay. Enter Varadha Raja Mannar, seeking the assistance of his old friend and one-man army, Deva, played by Prabhas.

As the narrative unfolds, the intricate alliances and conflicts within the kingdom of Khansaar promise an engaging and unpredictable plot. The film boasts a stellar creative team, with cinematography by Bhuvan Gowda, music composed by Ravi Basrur, stunts choreographed by Anbarivu, and editing by Ujwal Kulkarni.ย
