KGF Chapter 2 starring Yash in the lead role is one of the much-anticipated films of the year. The period action drama is directed by Prashanth Neel and it also stars Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon in important roles. Srinidhi Shetty plays the female lead in the film. KGF Chapter 1, which was made in Kannada and dubbed and released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi, received a lot of appreciation from audiences across India. There is thus a lot of expectation riding on the sequel to this pan-Indian film. KGF Chapter 2 was initially set to release in the second half of this year but the release has been postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

With lockdown restrictions easing across India, the Kannada film industry seems to be slowly getting back on its feet.

The team of KGF have already completed 90 per cent of filming, the crew is left with 25 days of shoot. The makers are coming up with a huge set at Minerva Mills, where the first part of the remaining schedule will take place. KGF Chapter 2 is being made with a huge budget and features a large ensemble, so the production house is ensuring adequate preventive measures during filming. According to reports, the first part of the remaining shoot is planned for 15 days, after which they will take a short break, and the last schedule will be for 10 days, with which they plan to complete the entire film. Produced by Vijay Kiragandur, KGF Chapter 2 will be one of the first big-budget films to resume shoot in Karnataka post the lockdown.
