Prabhas is poised for a highly anticipated comeback with his latest venture, the action-packed Salaar, directed by Prashanth Neel. Going head-to-head with Shah Rukh Khan's Dunki, Salaar is confidently outperforming its competition, having already amassed over Rs 135 crore in advance sales on its opening day.

Homable Films, the production company supporting Salaar, reports impressive pre-booking statistics, with 30.5 lakh tickets sold in advance, contributing Rs 95 crore to the collection. The film's success extends globally, grossing Rs 135 crore in India and a substantial Rs 178.7 crore worldwide.

While Prashanth Neel has made a mark in the Kannada film industry with the KGF blockbusters, Prabhas maintains a strong presence in the Telugu states. In contrast to recent hits like Animal, which garnered interest through star power and directorial acclaim, Salaar's draw is undoubtedly fueled by Prabhas' star appeal.

Prabhas, despite facing setbacks with Saaho, Radhe Shyam, and Adipurush, continues to be a box office powerhouse. His upcoming project, the dystopian thriller Kalki 2898 AD, featuring Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, and Kamal Haasan, further solidifies his standing in the industry.

Conversely, Shah Rukh Khan's Dunki faces an uphill battle with tepid reviews and lackluster box office performance. Registering as Khan's lowest opening of the year, it trails behind Jawan and Pathaan and falls short of director Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju, raising questions about its long-term impact in comparison to Salaar's resounding success.

As per film industry tracker , Prabhas is poised to achieve an unprecedented feat with his latest film, marking his fourth consecutive domestic opening surpassing Rs 100 crore – a milestone unparalleled in Indian cinema. Prabhas had earlier set records with Baahubali 2, Saaho, and Adipurush, all grossing over Rs 100 crore on their respective first days.

This remarkable accomplishment solidifies Prabhas as the first actor in Indian cinema to achieve such consistent box office success. While other luminaries like Kannada star Yash (K.G.F: Chapter 2) and Telugu actors Jr. NTR and Ram Charan (RRR) have attained this milestone once, none rival Prabhas' sustained dominance.

Produced by Vijay Kiragandur, the high-budget action-adventure marks the first of two installments in a pan-India film series. The ensemble cast features Shruthi Haasan, Tinu Anand, Eshwari Rao, Jagapathi Babu, Sriya Reddy, and Garuda Ram. This upcoming cinematic venture is poised to redefine box office standards.
