Meanwhile, earlier on Wednesday, the film’s production house, Hombale Films, announced that they have decided to postpone Salaar's release date. Initially, the film was set to release on September 28.
In a special note posted on X (formerly Twitter), the production house issued an apology for postponing the release of the film and wrote, “We deeply appreciate your unwavering support for #Salaar. With consideration, we must delay the original September 28 release due to unforeseen circumstances. Please understand this decision is made with care, as we're committed to delivering an exceptional cinematic experience. Our team is working tirelessly to meet the highest standards. The new release date will be revealed in due course. Stay with us as we make the final touches on #SalaarCeaseFire, and thank you for being a part of this incredible journey.”
The advance booking for the movie, which was earlier opened overseas, has now been stopped due to the postponement of the release date. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the movie as some of the most prominent filmmakers and actors have come together to make this film. The film will be released in multiple languages, including Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil and Hindi.
