Tollywood movies in the recent past have found a new viewership in the Hindi movie audience. Their movies are more than bizarre and unrealistic action sequences, in fact, their stories are sometimes more versatile in nature and this is what Bollywood fans got attracted to. Last year’s Yash starrer KGF was a huge hit, in spite of being released against a Bollywood biggie, Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Anushka Sharma starrer Zero, it went on to invite viewers to the theatres in huge numbers. And now, the sequel of the movie, KGF Chapter 2 is on the cards of the makers.
Earlier the movie made headlines for being in talks with Bollywood stars like Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon. Bollywood superstar, Sanjay Dutt was confirmed to have been offered a major role in the movie. Yash, the lead actor had told Deccan Chronicle,
“Yes, we have offered him Chapter 2 of KGF.”
If reports are to be believed, in this movie, Sanjay has been offered the role of an antagonist. The lead stars of the movie, Yash and Srinidhi Shetty visited a temple to seek the blessings and to ensure an auspicious start of the movie. The movie has gone on the floors but the Lage Raho Munna Bhai actor was nowhere to be seen, and so, there are chances that he may join the team later.
Sanjay Dutt’s upcoming movie, Kalank’s first look posters were revealed and also the movie’s teaser made its way online on Tuesday. His intense and fierce look has made people talking. He will be playing Balraj Chaudhary and will sport a salt & pepper look in the movie. Post that, he will be seen with Arjun Kapoor in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Panipat, in Sadak 2 alongside Pooja Bhatt, and then in Shamshera with Ranbir Kapoor. With all of this in the pipeline, he may soon begin shooting for KGF 2.
He is not the only Bollywood connection this movie has. Bollywood producers, Farhan Akhtar and Riteish Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment also ventured into Kannada production with KGF last year and are now aiming bigger with KGF Chapter 2. The movie is sure to scale up their production value and is promising to be technically advanced which would be apparent in the visuals of the movie. KGF 2 is touted to bring forth a visually stunning experience along with impactful dialogues in Hindi and Kannada to cater to both classes as well as the masses.
Apart from Hindi and Kannada, the movie also released in Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam and grabbed a record-breaking number of screens across the country. Out of the 2460 screens, 1500 were Hindi, 400 each were Kannada and Telugu, 100 were Tamil, and 60 were Malayalam.
Post the heartwarming success of the first installment in KGF series, Yash had tweeted thanking people for their support:
“KGF has brought me closer to a lot of people now. Had a wonderful experience while visiting the theatres in Tirupathi for #KGF! I am overwhelmed by all the love and support from the people there. Truly honoured by the response.”
Where the first chapter narrated Rocky’s story of how he got people in his favor, the second chapter may show his journey to become the most powerful man across the country.
