After the great success of KGF- Chapter 1, the makers of the movie are keen on a sequel. Taking into consideration the success of the Hindi version too, they are now said to be looking at an actor with a pan India appeal. The name being touted is that of Sanjay Dutt to play an important role in the movie.
The Yash starrer KGF-1 created a new box office record in Kannada movies and minted profits for the makers of the film. It even beat Baahubali: The Conclusion at the Kannada box office and went on to make Rs 240Cr at the world wide box office.
The shooting of the sequel is expected to commence in April, 2019 and it will be interesting to see how the two stars with their larger than life images will turn out.
Sunjay Dutt is not new to South Indian films. It may be recalled that he was last seen in the Telugu hit movie Chandralekha, 21 years ago. The movie had Nagarjuna and Ramya Krishnan in the lead. The South Indian movie world waits eagerly to see if Dutt will sign up for this project.
