KGF: Chapter 1, the Kannada film that was released last year in December, has been well received by the audiences and critics alike. The film is directed by Prashanth Neel and it featured Yash in the lead role, supported by Ananth Nag, Srinidhi Shetty, Vashishta N Simha and a whole lot of other stars. In fact, KGF has turned the spotlight of our entire nation towards the Kannada film industry. Ravi Basrur will be scoring music for this film, which is the second in the two part series. The dubbed versions of this film were also released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam.
Work is underway on KGF: Chapter 2 and it is expected to have a theatrical release the summer of 2020. An interesting information that has emerged about KGF : 2 is that yesteryear Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon is being roped in to play an important role. Our source said, “Raveena Tandon has been approached to play a crucial role in KGF 2 and she has also given the green signal”. Incidentally Raveena’s husband Anil Thadani is the distributor of the Hindi version of KGF.
Raveena is not new to the Kannada film industry and has previously acted with Upendra in the superhit film Upendra. She will be making a comeback of sorts with KGF 2. It has also been said that veteran Sanjay Dutt will also be featuring in this upcoming episode of KGF. It looks like KGF 2 is gearing up to go full throttle with a pan-Indian appeal.
