After the massive success of KGF Chapter 1 in 2018, the makers of the period drama are presently working on its sequel. Titled KGF Chapter 2, the movie stars Kannada superstar Yash in the lead role. While Yash is reprising his role from the first film, Bollywood superstar Sanjay Dutt has been roped in to play the antagonist.
The makers of the much-awaited sequel had recently dropped a poster which featured Dutt in a fierce look. The talented actor plays the character of Adheera in KGF Chapter 2. Fans loved the first-look poster of the superstar and now everyone is looking forward to seeing the movie in cinemas in 2020.

If reports are to be believed, Yash, too, wanted Sanjay Dutt to play the role of Adheera in the film. The south superstar is happy to be collaborating with one of his favourite actors. “Yash has grown up watching Sanjay Sir and his performances and has always been a huge fan. While the first chapter did not have a lead antagonist particularly, but when the script for chapter 2 was locked, Yash was knee and convinced only Sanjay could play the part. He was only the one who suggested Sanjay’s name to the makers and was hoping patiently that he accepts it. With Sanjay on board now, it is only a dream come true for rock star Yash who will be pitied against Sanjay in the film,” reveals a source close to the development.
Written and directed by Prashanth Neel, KGF Chapter 2 also stars Raveena Tandon, Srinidi Shetty, Anant Nag, and Malvika Avinash in important roles. Produced by KRG Studios and Excel Entertainment, the film is entering theatres in April, 2020. The official release date is yet to be locked.
