Prabhas’ much-anticipated Salaar Part One: Ceasefire continues its fiery box office run, adding another Rs 55 crore nett to its coffers on Saturday, bringing the total to a staggering Rs 145.70 crore nett in just two days! After a remarkable Rs 95 crore nett opening, the Prashanth Neel directorial shows no signs of slowing down, proving to be a much-needed box office triumph after a string of recent disappointments.
Salaar’s success is a testament to the combined power of Prabhas’ star power, Neel’s action-packed directorial style, and a story shrouded in intrigue. Early reports suggest positive audience reception, praising the film’s high-octane action sequences, captivating storyline, and Prabhas’ electrifying performance.
With such a strong start and positive word-of-mouth, Salaar is poised to dominate the box office for the foreseeable future. Analysts predict a potential clash with Avatar: The Way of Water in December, but considering Salaar’s momentum, it’s likely to hold its own and continue its impressive box office trajectory.
While Prabhas’ action extravaganza Salaar Part One: Ceasefire continues to blaze through the box office, its Hindi version encountered turbulence on December 23rd. With a 34.33% occupancy, marking the lowest for any Prabhas film in Hindi, Salaar faced an unexpected challenge in the form of Shah Rukh Khan’s much-anticipated Dunki.
The night shows remained Salaar’s saving grace, pulling in respectable numbers. However, overall the Hindi version faltered against the mighty Dunki, which witnessed a strong opening across the country. This direct competition has undoubtedly impacted Salaar’s Hindi reach, raising questions about its potential in the Hindi-speaking belt.
Despite the Hindi hiccup, Salaar’s overall performance remains impressive. The Telugu, Tamil, and Kannada versions continue to rake in the moolah, with the total nett collection crossing Rs 150 crore in just three days. Prabhas’ star power clearly retains its magic in these regions, even as the Hindi battle lines shift.
