After a long break, the shooting of KGF: Chapter 2 began early this morning (August 26) with the main cast and crew. The makers have procured required permission from the government to start the shooting with all precautionary measures in place. Actress Malavika Avinash who plays an important role in the film took to her Twitter page this morning to share her excitement about resuming shoot for KGF: Chapter 2. She posted a picture with Yash and wrote, “After 6 full months...the COVID break is broken...Shooting today! Feels like a rebirth! Guess which film???!!!”.

It has now been officially revealed that actor Prakash Raj has joined the sets of KGF: Chapter 2. Yes! The ace actor has joined shooting today with Malavika Avinash and a picture of him from the sets have been released by the film’s official PR team. However, this picture has created a lot of confusion and worry among the fans. In this picture, we see Prakash Raj seated in front of a table with Malavika Avinash on the opposite side. Do you remember this frame? Yes! The exact similar setup was seen in the first part of KGF and it was veteran actor Anant Nag whom we saw narrating the life story of Rocky Bhai. Anant Nag’s performance was widely appreciated and turned out to a great hit among the masses. In Tamil, his performance was elevated with the dubbing of Nizhalgal Ravi and the character has a special fan base.

This new picture featuring Prakash Raj has now created a confusion among the fans who are puzzled if the Ghilli actor has replaced Anant Nag. However, Malavika Avinash’s saree and the backdrop setup looks quite different and we are not sure if this is the same interview sequence or a different meeting with a different character. We will have to wait for an official confirmation from the team. Prakash Raj’s addition to the team of KGF 2 should definitely be a boosting factor and let us hope that we get to know about his character very soon.

KGF 2, directed by Prashanth Neel, has got humongous expectations from the fans across the country and one can be sure that the film will have a grand opening at the box office. Produced by Hombale Films, KGF: Chapter 2 will have Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt as Adheera, the deadly villain who will fight against Rocky Bhai (Yash) and their face off is definitely going to set the screens on fire. Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty, Saran Shakthi form the supporting cast. The film’s new release date will be finalized only after completing the climax portions involving Yash and Sanjay Dutt. For now, check out the pictures of Prakash Raj from the sets of KGF 2 below:
