Actor Yash will begin shooting for the second installment of KGF franchise from 6 June, sources have revealed. KGF 2, which recently went on the floors, is gearing up for release later this year.

Apparently, Yash has shot major portions of his character while filming the first part. He’s currently on a break where he’s spending time with his newborn son.

Being directed by Prashant Neel, KGF 2 (2020) stars Sanjay Dutt as the primary antagonist. The second chapter will follow the journey of Rocky bhai (Yash) as he rises to the king of a goldmine. The film will also star Raveena Tandon in a crucial role.

In a recent media interaction, Yash opened up on how Sanjay Dutt was signed for the project and why he’s excited to work with him.

“Sanjay ji was the first choice for the role from the beginning. Even when we planned to make the film only in Kannada, he was choice for the character of Adheera. When Prashant narrated the character, he was hell bent on signing Sanjay. We had even approached him for the first part but he was occupied with some other commitment,” Yash said.

On sharing screen space with Sanjay, Yash said: “His addition will be a big boost to KGF franchise. He’s a wonderful actor, and we’re happy he’s on board.”

The second part will be predominantly shot in Kolar gold fields. The makers are eyeing December 2020 release.
