Prabhas’ Salaar Emerges as Third Telugu Film to Cross INR 650 Crore Worldwide, Set to Surpass INR 400 Crore Milestone

In a cinematic clash of titans, Prabhas’ latest venture, ‘Salaar: Cease Fire – Part 1,’ is navigating through the tumultuous waters of the box office, encountering both triumphs and challenges. The Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Dunki’ has proven to be a formidable competitor, intensifying the struggle for supremacy in the realm of Indian cinema.

Despite an illustrious first week at the box office, where ‘Salaar’ showcased its mettle with robust numbers, the tides began to turn as the film entered its second week. The initial spark ignited by the extended New Year’s holiday waned, leading to a discernible dip in collections on its 13th day.

Early estimates reveal that on its 13th day, ‘Salaar: Cease Fire – Part 1’ amassed approximately INR 5.25 Crores in net collections across all languages. This decline follows the film’s stellar performance on the 11th day, where it raked in an impressive INR 16.6 Crores, showcasing the movie’s unpredictable trajectory.

As the second Wednesday unfolded, ‘Salaar’ managed to secure INR 5.25 crore in India, contributing to a nett domestic box office total of INR 373.57 crore. The film’s journey, featuring Prithviraj Sukumaran, Tinnu Anand, Jagapathi Babu, and Sriya Reddy in pivotal roles, continues to be a rollercoaster of financial fortunes.

Despite the challenges, ‘Salaar: Cease Fire – Part 1’ still holds a firm grip on the Telugu market, maintaining a 17.97% occupancy. In the vibrant city of Hyderabad, the film retains 425 shows with an 18.5% occupancy rate, while in the Delhi-NCR region, ‘Salaar’ boasts 614 shows with a 16.5% occupancy.

Prabhas-starrer Salaar has etched its name in the annals of Telugu cinema, crossing the impressive INR 650 crore mark worldwide. Trade analyst Manobala Vijayabalan reports that Salaar now stands as the third Telugu film to achieve this milestone, following the monumental success of Baahubali 2 and RRR. Notably, RRR raked in INR 1230 crore, while Baahubali 2, also featuring Prabhas, amassed a staggering INR 1788 crore globally.

Expressing gratitude for the overwhelming response, Prabhas took a moment to thank his fans. In a statement, the leading man conveyed, “I am deeply grateful and humbled by the immense love and support given by the audience. Witnessing Salaar’s fantastic run at the box office has been nothing but an incredible reward for me and my entire team.”

Salaar marks a significant resurgence for Prabhas, who faced setbacks with previous big-budget projects like Saaho, Radhe Shyam, and Adipurush. The Prashanth Neel-directed Salaar, considered a litmus test for Prabhas’ stardom, has not only exceeded expectations but has also set the stage for the actor’s future endeavors.

Looking ahead, Prabhas is gearing up for Salaar Part 2, with the story already in place. In a conversation with India Today, he revealed, “The story is already ready, and we are going to start very soon, aiming to deliver the film as soon as possible for the audiences. I am aware that many of my fans are eagerly waiting for its release. We will soon unveil the details of Salaar Part 2.”

With Salaar marching confidently towards the INR 400 crore mark, Prabhas remains a force to be reckoned with in the Indian film industry. Apart from the Salaar franchise, the actor has a lineup of promising projects, including the sequel scheduled for 2025, Nag Ashwin’s Kalki 2898 AD, Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Spirit, and director Maruthi’s upcoming venture.
