Lockdown 4.0: KGF Chapter 2 May not hit the theatres on October 23, bad news for fans
KGF makers had planned for a Dussehra release, but are now doubtful as the lockdown has impacted the project. They have now decided to release their film next year. Among the films planning to release next year, the much-anticipated KGF Chapter 2 will also join the 2021 club for sequel release.
Bengaluru: Fans of Yash will have to wait for another year as the lengthy lockdown has impacted schedules. The makers of KGF, who had planned for a Dussehra release this year, are reportedly planning to release Chapter 2 in 2021.
The makers think, 2020 has been unlucky as the year has been replete with coronavirus and other tragic events since January.
Having set the box office on fire in 2018 with the prequel, KGF was released in five different languages. Director Prashant Neel and actor Yash hoped to achieve big success with its sequel. And the makers had announced October 23 as the release date for Chapter 2, but now due to coronavirus-induced 54-days lockdown, the film's release is likely to be pushed to 2021.
To make Chapter 2 interesting, the director had roped in Bollywood actors, Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon.
While Dutt will be another dreaded don 'Adheera' who wants to control the biggest golf mining region, Raveena will essay the role of Ramika Sen, the Indian Prime Minister, who will sign the death warrant against India's biggest gangster Rocky bhai Yash.
