The advance booking of Salaar started on a good note, as it managed to reach over 48 crores just hours before the film's release. It will definitely open big on day 1, making more than 50 crore across the country. It is released in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, and Hindi simultaneously. The biggest surge in advance bookings was seen in the Telugu belt, which is the home ground for Prabhas.
Salaar released with an A certificate for its violent action sequences and mature themes. Speaking about the same, director Prashanth Neel said that his intention was never to make a violent film that would get an A.
He said, "I have seen Telugu cinema for the past 25-30 years, and sometimes I feel my actions are pale in comparison to the action it had. But they have drawn out new guidelines, and the censor officers also told me this is what it is."

He also added that he was very disappointed with the decision and just sat quietly for 15-20 minutes in front of the censor board.
Further, he said, "I know I have not made a vulgar movie or a movie that handles violence senselessly. It is all necessary violencemdashmore than what I have put in KGF. I thought this movie needed it because it is about friendship and sacrifice, and about one character who doesn't involve himself in anything that's happening in the world."
