After watching the action-packed teaser of Hombale Films Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire, the nation was eagerly waiting for its trailer, which was set to be released on Friday. Once it did, as expected, it created an instant stir amongst everyone and became one of the trending topics. While this has indeed piqued the excitement for the release of the film, director Prashanth Neel has come up with interesting anecdotes about the film to elevate our ever-rising exhilaration.
As Prashanth Neel is currently on the promotional spree of Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire, he went on to attend an interview where he was asked how he got the idea of Salaar. While replying to this, the director said, "The idea of making Saalar had come to my mind 15 years ago, but after making my first film, Ugram, I got busy with KGF, which took me almost eight years to make. That is, we first started planning KGF, and by the time its second part was released, eight years had passed. In this way, the idea of making this film was already in my mind and during COVID-19, when KGF 2 was not released, we all had a lot of time because we were all sitting at home. So I worked on it a little."
Moreover, the director was asked yet another question about, at which locations and in how many days was the shooting of the film completed. He said, "We have shot the entire portion of the film in Ramoji Film City. Hyderabad. Singaneri Mines is 5 hours away from Hyderabad, where we shot; apart from this we also shot in South Ports, Mangalore Port, and Vizag Port; apart from this we also shot a small part in Europe. The shooting of the film lasted for about 114 days."
