A film that took the entire nation by storm was the 2018 Kannada period action venture, K. G. F: Chapter 1, starring Yash in the lead role under Prashant Neel's direction. Produced under the Hombale Films banner and featuring chart-buster songs and a thunderous background score composed by Ravi Basrur, the first installment of KGF went on to become the highest-grossing film in Kannada cinema's history and was subsequently dubbed in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam languages to a rousing success.
Post the grand success of the first KGF film, there have been sky-high expectations for the sequel, K. G. F: Chapter 2, which is reportedly being planned for a grand summer release. Yash will be reprising his role as Raja Krishnappa Bairya aka. Rocky alongside Srinidhi Shetty, Archana Jois, Ramachandra Raju, Anant Nag, Malavika Avinash, T. S. Nagabharana and new cast members among whom include names like Sanjay Dutt as Adheera, Raveena Tandon as Ramika Sen, Rao Ramesh, Saran Sakthi and several others.
With filming on KGF 2 still ongoing, Yash, had recently recently made an appearance at an event held in a private college in Chennai after which he sat down for an exclusive interview with Galatta where he speaks about his friendship with Tamil actor Vishal, his preparation for his role as a Rocky Bhai and much more. Speaking about KGF: Chapter 2, Yash stated, "To be honest with you, I didn't prepare much for KGF: Chapter 1. It was a raw character and I had to look 'local', have a 'mass' image, and not appear polished. I had to resemble a youngster who came from the streets. As for KGF: Chapter 2, it has been a demanding experience so far. In terms of my looks and appearance, I have to be slim as I'll be wearing more suits. Now, 'Rocky' needs to look trim, polished and groomed as he has money, power and there is quite a lot of preparation involved. I have been working out for my character in KGF 2 over the past 8 months with proper diet. In comparison to KGF 1, the upcoming film will be better and on a different level,".
