Salaar is ready to release in theatres in just a few days. Salaar director Prashanth Neel was recently spotted in an interview with SS Rajamouli expressing his disappointment over the film getting an A certification. He said, “I was very disappointed, I sat in front of her for 20 mins. I know that I have not made a vulgar movie or a movie that is insensible with violence. It is all necessary violence.” The director recalls that the certification board had asked for certain cuts in the film, but he opted not to cut it down as it would have altered the viewing experience of the film.

Earlier, Prashanth Neel opened up about violent scenes in the film. He said to ETimes, “The violence comes only with the emotion. There is no necessity for violence, just for the sake of violence. I know mass movies sell. And mass movies come with a tag of violence behind it. The more violence it has, the more mass it is.”

He added, “So if Salaar is going to be a mass movie, then it is only because it has an emotion behind it. And the violence comes in only because of that emotion. So we strictly have restricted ourselves to the emotion of the movie. And whatever the emotion has required us to do, only so much violence we have shown.”

Prashanth Neel continued, “That was about 4 months, we’ve had drinks a few times. Everybody is reserved, and you have to live through a couple of years in the making of the film with an actor on a daily basis. And if you don’t have a rapport with them, you are not going to see that on screen, your chemistry starts off-screen. With Yash, we have a friendship that is going to last a lifetime.”
