Last week, we had reported that the set work from for KGF 2 was underway in Bangalore. The director was spotted with his team of assistants outside Fabrication Workshop. Even the makers had shared a post saying they are getting ready to restart shoot for the film and the team is heading to the finish line. Even Prasanth Neel had tweeted saying let’s get it done. Now we have another update from one of the main cast members from the film. It is Malavika Avinash who plays a journalist in the movie. She has shared a photo with Yash from the shooting spot of KGF 2. Her tweet reads as follows: “After 6 full months...the COVID break is broken...Shooting today! Feels like a rebirth! Guess which film???!!!” It must be noted that even during the lockdown Prasanth Neel was working on the post-production work of KGF 2. Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt is playing an important role called Adheera in KGF 2.  

It was earlier speculated that the teaser of KGF 2 will be released in the month of December 2019 then it was revealed that the teaser will be out on January 8th of 2020 for Yash’s birthday. The makers couldn’t release the teaser of the KGF 2 on the planned date but they had released an intriguing poster instead. Prashanth Neel is now the most-wanted director in Sandalwood after KGF 1st part which was a runaway blockbuster and an all-time industry hit. KGF 1 performed well commercially and collected ₹76 crore four days into release, in the process breaking the record for the highest-grossing Kannada film of all time. The movie was released online by Amazon Prime Video on 5 February 2019 which earlier bought the digital rights for ₹18 crores and Colors Kannada bought the satellite rights for an undisclosed record price. The film had an even bigger reception when it was released on Amazon Prime reaching wider audience who are all anticipating its sequel’s release. KGF 2 is going to have the biggest opening that a Kannada film has ever seen.
