Yash’s KGF: Chapter 2 is one of the biggest films of this year that has got huge expectations among the fans. The mammoth success of the first in all the languages has given a great support to the sequel and the fans are eagerly waiting to see Rocky Bhai once again. Recently, there were rumours that the film might skip the theatrical release and would release directly on an OTT streaming platform. It was also said that the rights were sold for a record price. However, Yash has quashed the rumours as baseless and assured that KGF 2 will release only in theatres, as it is a film that is being made for a theatrical viewing experience.

In his recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Yash was quoted as saying, “I don’t know where these reports are coming from. There is absolutely no question of releasing KGF 2 on the OTT platform. The entire film is designed as a big-screen experience. My director Prashanth Neel and I know what audiences’ expectations are. They want everything to be much larger much more lavish than in the first film. I can’t let down my fans. Never!”.

Now, the fans can be relieved and be clear that they would see KGF 2 only in theatres. Currently, the makers are focussing on the post-production works. A few more days of shooting is left to complete the film and only then we’d get a better clarity on the release date of the film. As of now, the film is scheduled to release on October 23, but the plans are subject to change. Directed by Prashanth Neel and produced by Hombale Films, KGF: Chapter 2 features Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist Adheera, while Raveena Tandon, Malavika Avinash, Ananth Nag, and Srinidhi Shetty would be seen in crucial roles.
