Actor Yash who was born as Naveen Kumar Gowda Bhuvanahalli is a village near by Hassan city Hassan district of Karnataka, his father Arun Kumar was working BMTC transport service as a driver. From nowhere, today, Yash has become among the most wanted film actors in India. Yash spent his childhood days in Mysore, where he did his pre university course (PUC) in Mahajana Education Society (MES), and after finishing his studies, he joined the Benaka drama troupe which was formed by noted dramatist BV Karanth. After quite a struggle he made his acting debut with a Kannada film Moggina Manasu which release in 2008. Yash played the male lead opposite his future wife Radhika. The film was a success and earned him a good name and solid spot in the industry. It’s been 12 years since the release of his 1st film and there is no looking back. He has a long list of successful films in his career starting from his debut film, Modalasala, Rajadhani, Kirataka, Drama, Googly, Raja Huli, Gajakesari, Mr. and Mrs. Ramachari, and Masterpiece. Though, he had a successful career, it was KGF which made Yash a pan Indian star. On the special occasion, a new still from KGF 2 has now found its way online. It is a simple photo where you can see Yash sitting in the chair all dressed up with that unique swag of his that people really love. His fans have started to decode this simple photo. He is seen wearing a Hanuman Pendant locket on his left hand. In one of the final shots of KGF 1, the heroine of the film Srinidhi Shetty would be holding the very same pendant in hands with teary eyes. Maybe, Reena (Srinidhi) must have gifted Rocky Bhai (Yash) the locket to keep him safe. 
KGF 2 is one of the much-awaited films of the year but it is highly unlikely for the film to release this year as planned due to the outbreak of Corona Virus. The shooting of the film has been put on hold due to the lockdown but Prasanth Neel has been working on the post-production work of KGF 2 even before all these relaxations. Prashanth and Yash are planning to change the dynamics of Kannada film industry with KGF 2. The success of KGF has opened up doors for other budding directors to make pan Indian films and the duo is planning to increase the boundary even bigger with the second part. Prasanth and music director Ravi Basrur have been working on the music for the film during the lockdown. Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt is playing an important role called Adheera in KGF 2.
