Actor Shruti Haasan is set to star in KGF director Prashanth Neel's underworld action thriller Salaar, the makers announced on Thursday.

Billed as a "pan-India" project, the film will feature Haasan opposite South star Prabhas, who will be seen playing a "violent character".

The official Twitter account of production house Hombale Films made the announcement on Haasan's 35th birthday.

Prabhas also took to Instagram and shared a picture of Haasan, writing, "Looking forward to working with you on Salaar."

The film, which is being produced in Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi simultaneously, would mark the first screen collaboration between Haasan and the Baahubali star.

Salaar is aiming to release in 2021.

Haasan most recently featured in Amazon Prime Video's Tamil-language anthology movie Putham Pudhu Kaalai. She will next be seen in Laabam and Vakeel Saab.
