In an interview with Bangalore Times, director Prashanth Neel had explained the meaning of the film’s title. He was quoted as saying, “There are many interpretations of the term Salaar. It is a more colloquial word, so the meaning I will derive from it is commander-in-chief. The right hand man to a king, the general, is what I would say.” Talking about Prabhas’ look and character in the film, he had mentioned, “The character that I am trying to portray is dark and I wanted to make that clear from the outset. The first look had to explain the nature of the movie, without giving out too much detail. An image like this could also suggest that he is in the army, which is why I added the caption to avoid any such confusion.” After Master’s Success, Vijay Sethupathi To Once Again Turn Baddie for Prabhas’ Salaar?
