Prashanth Neel is now the most-wanted director in Sandalwood after the runaway blockbuster KGF. His next film will be 2nd and final instalment of KGF which is titled KGF: Chapter 2. Prashanth along with Yash has changed the dynamics of Kannada film industry. The success of KGF has opened up doors for other budding directors to make pan Indian films. Prashanth Neel made his debut with the 2014 film, Ugramm starring Sriimurali in lead. The film emerged as a blockbuster hit and launched his career on a high note. Then happened KGF which instantly put him on the Indian map. The shooting of KGF 2 has been put on hold due to the lockdown. The makers are planning to get back to work very soon but now they have another setback. Sanjay Dutt who plays an important role in the film has been diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer. However, there are reports from the team saying that only a few scenes featuring Sanjay Dutt are pending shooting. The team member also said that Sanjay Dutt’s dubbing would be planned once he recovers and returns from his treatment. Sanjay Dutt is playing the role of the antagonist Adheera in KGF 2. Sanjay Dutt’s team has told KGF 2 makers that the actor would return from his treatment in three months, to complete the film. He also said that Sanjay Dutt has about three days of shooting remaining. 
So, what next for Prashanth Neel after KGF 2? We bet, most leading actors across the nation would be eyeing to work with him after the monstrous success of KGF. Now the latest report from Tollywood state that Prashanth Neel would next be teaming up with Baahubali actor Prabhas for an action thriller. Even if this news turns out to be true, this project will not start rolling any time soon since Prabhas already has two big projects in the pipeline. One is Radhe Shyam which is being directed by Radha Krishna Kumar and has Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo star Pooja Hegde as the lady lead. Prabhas would next be joining hands with Mahanati director Nag Ashwin, for his #Prabhas21. This project, which was originally scheduled to take off towards the second half of this year, has now been postponed to next year because of the worldwide shutdown due to the COVID-19 Corona Virus Pandemic. Deepika Padukone has been roped in to play the female lead in this project. So, if Prashanth Neel is to direct, Prabhas, he must have to wait for close to 2 years. Let’s see how this project shapes up.
