Zee TV Networks has bought the satellite rights to all south Indian versions of KGF: Chapter 2. Kannada actor Yash, who plays the lead in the film, took to social media to share the news.
He wrote: “Glad to Announce #KGF2SouthOnZee (sic)”.
Directed by Prashanth Neel, KGF: Chapter 2 features Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty, Prakash Raj, Malavika Avinash and Achyuth Kumar in pivotal roles. The second instalment of KGF features Dutt as the main antagonist Adheera. Dutt had compared his role in the movie to Thanos in the Hollywood superhero flick Avengers. “If you have seen Avengers, you know how powerful Thanos is. Adheera is as powerful as him,” the actor was quoted as saying.
The first instalment of the movie showed how Rocky, played by Yash, born in poverty, rose up to be a dreaded gangster in Mumbai and how his hunger for power led to the gold mines of Kolar. The sequel will build on this hunger for power and his struggle to retain his control.
Production of the highly anticipated film was delayed due to the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. Though the makers wrapped up the shoot earlier this year, they still have not announced a release date as theatres continue to remain shut.
The first part of the film released in 2018 to overwhelming response.
