There have been many theories around the delay surrounding Salaar, with some reports claiming that VFX work is one of the reasons that the film was pushed to a later date.

They are making the final touches on the film and committed to delivering an exceptional cinematic experience.”
Salaar release date was postponed previously
Earlier this month, the reports of Salaar getting postponed were doing the rounds. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh had confirmed the rumours and tweeted, "Breaking news… Prabhas's SALAAR to arrive in November… Salaar is NOT arriving on 28 September 2023, it’s OFFICIAL now… The post-production work of this Prabhas-starrer is going on in full swing… Hombale Films - the producers - are bringing the film in November 2023… New release date soon."
As Shah Rukh Khan's Jawan was released on September 7, a section of social media users said that Salaar's release date was pushed due to the Jawan craze. On September 13, the makers Hombale Films had said in a statement, “We deeply appreciate your unwavering support for Salaar. With consideration, we must delay the original September 28 release due to unforeseen circumstances. Please understand this decision is made with care, as we're committed to delivering an exceptional cinematic experience. Our team is working tirelessly to meet the highest standards. The new release date will be revealed in due course…”
