What's The Truth Behind the Shelving Rumors of 'Salaar 2'?

The highly anticipated sequel to Prashanth Neel's 'Salaar,' starring Prabhas, has been the subject of much speculation. 'Salaar Part 1: Ceasefire,' which hit theatres on December 22, 2023, was met with a warm reception from audiences and critics alike. The film, featuring an ensemble cast that includes Prabhas, Prithviraj Sukumaran, and Shruti Haasan, became a box office hit, raking in an impressive Rs 750 crore.

Despite the success, rumours have been swirling on social media that 'Salaar 2' has been shelved due to creative differences. The sequel is expected to delve deeper into the conflict between Salaar and the Shouryaanga tribe and was initially slated for release towards the end of this year. Prithviraj Sukumaran, who plays Varadha, previously confirmed that the script for the second instalment was nearly complete and that filming would begin soon.

Creative Differences and Shelving Rumors

The latest updates suggested that the ambitious project had been shelved permanently due to creative differences between Prabhas and director Prashanth Neel. This development came as a shock to many fans eagerly awaiting the continuation of the high-octane action saga.

Origins of the Rumours

The rumours about 'Salaar 2' being shelved initially stemmed from reports of creative differences between Prabhas and Prashanth Neel. Additionally, there was talk that Prashanth Neel's commitment to his next project with Jr NTR, tentatively titled 'NTR 31,' which begins shooting in August, would prevent him from focusing on 'Salaar 2.' However, the recent post from the filmmakers seems to have put an end to these speculations.
