Salaar makers might release the movie on December 22, 2023. This news has spread like wildfire since last night. There is no official announcement as yet from Hombale Films though. However, Prashanth Neel’s wife Likhita Reddy put up an Insta story saying that December 2023 will be completely unimaginable. This hints at a clash between Prabhas and Shah Rukh Khan. Many trade experts are wondering if Dunki makers will push their film ahead. Both the movies have immense potential to rake in the big bucks, and a clash will only harm their chances. In fact, some believe that Salaar makers might have had a meeting with Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani on this matter.
Did Salaar makers follow this strategy?
Trade expert Manobala Vijayabalan has put up a rather interesting post on X (formerly Twitter). He said that Hombale Films have a strategy to book all good dates when a film comes. It seems the date of December 22, 2023 was booked for their movie, Yuva. The Santosh Ananddram movie has Kantara actress Sapthami Gowda in the lead with Yuva Rajkumar. It is an action thriller. If Salaar takes up that date, they can move Yuva ahead in 2024. There are high chances that Dunki might come in 2024 given that Shah Rukh Khan has extended cameo in Tiger 3 too.
Hombale films master strategy:
They usually block all good dates in a year with all their films. Then they alter their release dates depending on content.

It seems Salaar got delayed as the VFX was not ready on time. Filmmaker Prashanth Neel wants to provide a memorable cinematic experience to his fans. Expectations are high after KGF 2. Moreover, Prabhas is coming after two disasters like Radhe Shyam and Adipurush. While the first had a bad script, the Om Raut movie got terrible reviews along with backlash for distorted version of the Ramayana.
Salaar also stars Shruti Haasan, Jagapathi Babu, Easwari Rao and Prithviraj Sukumaran. The movie is loaded with death-defying action scenes and Prabhas will be in a ruthless avatar. On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani got a golden date with X’Mas 2023. He is the biggest Indian star overseas and Dunki has immense potential. Now, we can only wait for further official announcement.
