In July 2019, Sanjay Dutt confirmed speculations surrounding his appearance in the film. The crew released the film's first poster on Dutt's 60th birthday on 29 July. 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." 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.
Media rumours that Raveena Tandon would appear in the film started making rounds as early as February 2019. A news report in The Times of India in August confirmed that Tandon will be seen in a "major role" in the film. In August 2019, it was reported that Tamil actor Saran Shakthi would be playing "an important role".
