‘Salaar: Part One – Ceasefire’ captivates audiences in multiple languages, including Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. It faces stiff competition from Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Dunki’ at the box office as the film continues to soar to new heights in the cinematic realm.

However, when Raja Mannar orders the extermination of the Shouryanga clan in Khansaar, Deva and his mother become unintended casualties in the conflict. In a selfless act, Vardha relinquishes his claim over Khansaar’s territory as a form of payment to spare their lives. As they part ways, Deva assures Vardha that he will be there whenever Vardha calls upon him.
