Hombale Film, the production house behind actor Prabhas' upcoming movie Salaar, announced on Sunday that the magnum opus will be releasing in theatres on April 14 next year. The actioner has created a fair deal of buzz among fans as it marks the mass hero's first collaboration with KGF director Prashanth Neel.

Salaar features 'Darling' in the role of a dangerousΒ man and has a violent storyline that may click with the aam janta. It stars Shruti Haasan as the leading lady and is likely to be a gamechanger for the actor. There have also been talks of Bollywood star Disha Patani essaying a key role in the biggie.

A few websites had recently reported that Salaar is a remake of Prashanth's popular Kannada movie Ugramm. The director, however, dismissed the rumours and clarified that the movie's story has been written keeping Prabhas in mind.

It is slated to hit the screens on July 30 alongside the Alia Bhatt-starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi.

Prabhas will be seen playing Lord Ram in the Om Raut-helmed Adipurush, an adaptation of the Ramayana. The 'dream project' stars Saif Ali Khan as the antagonist 'Lankesh', marking his Tollywood debut. The buzz is that Kriti Sanon is being considered for the role of Sita.

The 'Young Rebel Star' also has a film with Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone and 'Megastar' Amitabh Bachchan in his kitty. It reportedly explores the concept of the 'Inner God' Β and has shades of the Chiranjeevi-starrer Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari.
