The film’s executive producer Karthik Gowda said, ‘We are geared up to start the second chapter of our magnum opus KGF. It gets bigger and more announcements will be on the way.’
The filmmakers are targeting to complete shooting by January 2020 and release the film in the summer. Meanwhile, the thrill is also that Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt will be linked in to play the role of a villain opposite Yash in the sequel. He is presently reading the script of the film ‘We are in discussions with him and we will announce the update soon,’ added Karthik.
KGF: Chapter 1 released in December 2018 to a rapturous response from the spectators breaking several box office records. It became the first Kannada film to enter the Rs. 200-crore club worldwide and was dubbed in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam. It was also released in several countries including Pakistan and became the first Kannada film to be commercially released in the neighbouring country. Alongside Yash, the film starred Srinidhi Shetty, Achyuth Kumar, Malavika Avinash, Nassar, Anant Nag and Vasishta N Simha.
Can’t wait to watch KGF: Chapter 2.
