The announcement of a new release date by the makers has reignited the buzz and anticipation surrounding Prabhas’ highly-anticipated action film, “Salaar.” However, another intriguing development on social media has sparked more speculation about this Prashanth Neel-directed project.
With “Ugramm” trending on social media, speculations about “Salaar” have resurfaced. Many now believe that Neel is presenting an enhanced version of “Ugramm” with Prabhas in an even more prominent role. It’s worth noting that there were plans for a sequel to “Ugramm” titled “Veeram” a few years ago, but it didn’t progress beyond the discussion stages.
Reports have emerged suggesting that Neel’s 2014 action thriller, “Ugramm,” has suddenly been removed from YouTube. This news has become a trending topic, leading to increased speculation about the connection between “Salaar” and “Ugramm.” There have been rumors circulating since the early days of “Salaar” that Neel might be remaking his own film, making some script changes, and casting Prabhas in the lead role.
Although Neel has explicitly stated that “Salaar” features an entirely fresh storyline during his media interactions around the time of the release of “KGF 2,” the striking similarities in the first look posters and the backdrop of the story have kept these rumors alive. Now, these rumors have gained more traction as “Ugramm” was removed from YouTube just one day after the official announcement of “Salaar” by Hombale Films.
For those unfamiliar with “Ugramm,” it revolves around a man torn between his promise to his mother to live a life free of violence and his friend who urges him to confront a crime syndicate and end their atrocities. “Salaar” is also rumored to have a similar storyline but with significant changes to the key characters.
“Salaar” is scheduled for release on December 22nd, and fans are eagerly awaiting the theatrical trailer, which is expected to be released on October 23rd as a birthday treat for Prabhas’ fans. Until then, the mystery surrounding the film’s plot and its potential connection to “Ugramm” will likely persist.
