Highly Anticipated Salaar Part One: Ceasefire Faces Delay Due to Post Production; Fans Await New Release Date
In a surprising turn of events, the release of Prabhas‘ highly anticipated film, Salaar Part One: Ceasefire, has reportedly been postponed, leaving fans disappointed. Initially scheduled for a worldwide theatrical release on September 28, 2023, the film’s delay in post-production has led to this decision. As a consequence of this postponement, it is reported that ticket refunds worth $400,000 for US advance bookings are on the horizon.
Salaar’s Delay Leads to Ticket Refunds
Prabhas, the leading man of Salaar, had generated substantial excitement and anticipation among his fans, resulting in a massive advance booking at the US box office. It is estimated that around $400,000 worth of tickets are set to be refunded as all bookings for the film currently stand canceled. While no official statement regarding the new release date or the postponement has been issued by the film’s makers, this news is undoubtedly disappointing for Prabhas’ ardent admirers.
According to a report by Pinkvilla, the decision to postpone Salaar was made unanimously by Prabhas, director Prashanth Neel, and the film’s team. The report states, “Salaar holds a prominent position among the big films emerging from India, and the creators are determined to meet the high expectations of fans and moviegoers.

Unfortunately, the film is not yet ready and requires additional time for post-production. Consequently, Prabhas, Prashanth Neel, and their team collectively agreed to postpone the movie from its original September 28 release date.”
Tentative Release in December 2023 or January 2024
Reportedly, director Prashanth Neel and the makers of Salaar are aiming for a new release window in either December 2023 or January 2024. December, however, is already packed with film releases, including Shah Rukh Khan’s third film of the year, “Dunki.” To make the most of the festive season and holidays, they are considering the Sankranti and Republic Day period in January.

Interestingly, the Sankranti holiday slot in January is already reserved for Prabhas’ “Kalki 2898 AD,” a film that also stars Bollywood legends Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, and Kamal Haasan, and is directed by Nag Ashwin. This places the makers of Salaar in a strategic position to choose their release date wisely, considering the competitive landscape.
