K.G.F: Chapter 2 is an upcoming Indian Kannada-language period action film directed by Prashanth Neel. A sequel to the 2018 film K.G.F: Chapter 1, the film stars Yash in the lead reprising his role from the first film and Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist.[2] Principal photography began in March 2019. The film was supposed to be released in February 2020,[3] however, it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Sanjay Dutt's health issues.[4] The film will be dubbed in Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu languages.[2]

Production[edit]

Filming for K.G.F: Chapter 2 started in March 2019,[13] with a small part of the film having already been shot during K.G.F: Chapter 1.[14] After an initial round of filming near Bangalore, filming commenced at cyanide hills in Kolar Gold Fields in August 2019.[2]

Casting[edit]

In July 2019, Sanjay Dutt confirmed speculations surrounding his appearance in the film.[15] The crew released the film's first poster on Dutt's 60th birthday on 29 July.[16][17] On signing Dutt, Yash remarked, "Sanjay Dutt is a wonderful actor, and when elements like his physical appearance, image, legacy and, on top of it, the kind of role that KGF Chapter 2 has etched for him come together, it only adds value."[18] Dutt compared his character Adheera to Thanos, and revealed that it was "shown to be a dangerous character with scary makeup" and added that it was the role he was looking for.[19]

Media rumours that Raveena Tandon would appear in the film started making rounds as early as February 2019.[20] A news report in The Times of India in August confirmed that Tandon will be seen in a "major role" in the film.[2] In August 2019, it was reported that Tamil actor Saran Shakthi would be playing "an important role".[7]

The film is scheduled to release on 14 January 2021.[21]
