As far as his character is concerned, Pramod has chosen to keep all the key details under wraps but in one of his interviews, he did suggest that his character boasts a few shades of grey.
Speculations have been rife that young actor Pramod Panju, known for his roles in films like Premier Padmini and Rathnan Prapancha, was roped in recently by team Salaar to play a prominent role in the film. While the makers did not confirm the same, a few reports stated that sources close to the development of the project were certain of Pramod's involvement and that, in fact, he had already begun shooting for his part in the film.
And now, Pramod himself has come out confirming that he is, quite indeed, a part of the Salaar principal cast. In his recent media interactions, he revealed that he shares the majority of his screen space with Prabhas, Prithviraj Sukumaran, and many other actors and added that although he cannot disclose what these portions entail, his role will be of prime significance in the film.
Pramod would also discuss the interesting process of casting him in Salaar and how his role in Rathnan Prapancha earned him a phone call from the mighty Prashanth Neel. Impressed by his performance in the Rohit Padaki film, Neel would call up Pramod and offer an exciting part in his magnum opus and was brought on board as many as 8 months later. In the meantime, Pramod was led to believe that team Salaar had either selected a different actor to play the part meant for him or that the KGF 2 director wasn't very keen in the first place. However, much to his delight, he did eventually become an integral part of the Salaar cast following a look test back in August of 2022.
As far as his character is concerned, Pramod has chosen to keep all the key details under wraps but in one of his interviews, he did suggest that his character boasts a few shades of grey. He also shared that his costume and the entire physical appearance of his character will include many unconventional elements.
