The overseas rights of Salaar have been bought in massive numbers, making it one of the most expensive Indian movies in terms of overseas rights.

Salaar overseas rights

Salaar, directed by Prashanth Neel of ‘KGF’ fame, is a highly anticipated film that stars Prabhas in the lead role. The movie is being produced by Vijay Kiragandur under the banner of Hombale Films, and it also features Shruti Haasan in a key role. The film is being made on a massive budget of around 150 crores, and the production value of the movie is anticipated to be top-notch.


Pan India superstar Prabhas has been creating waves in the Indian film industry with his brilliant performances and blockbuster movies. His upcoming movie with Prashanth Neel’s ‘Salaar’ has been making headlines since it was announced, and the latest news about the film has taken the excitement to another level.

According to reports, the overseas rights of the movie have been bought for a whopping 70 crores, making it one of the most expensive Indian movies in terms of overseas rights. Considering this massive number, it is a huge feat for the movie, also it is yet to release and is still in the production stage. This shows the trust that the distributors and buyers have in the movie, which is a testament to the director and the star cast’s potential.

Shooting in Italy

Interestingly, the Prasanth Neel directorial has been broadly filmed in the fresh locations of Italy’s Matera city since mid-March. What’s fascinating to mention is that the beautiful city of Matera is the same destination where the Hollywood actor Daniel Craig’s James Bond film, No Time To Die was shot.


Sources said that ‘Salaar’ production has now moved to Naples, where preparations for filming in the southern port city’s central Piazza del Plebiscito plaza are underway.

The local police are helping with the set preparations, which include the use of drones and lighting for night shooting. Aside from Matera and Naples, other ‘Salaar’ locales include Rome and Budapest.

Salaar is set to be released internationally on September 28 in Telugu and dubbed versions in Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Hindi, and English.
