As he shared the pictures, another picture of Yash with Karan Johar has gone viral. In the photo, the duo is seen having a deep conversation.
Rocking Star Yash, who recently became the father of a baby boy, is currently working on the second instalment of the blockbuster movie KGF.
Yash earlier in an interview had said, "I have been busy with KGF Chapter 2. It is a massive project. I used to speak about the first instalment on the same lines. If you remember, I had told you that KGF 1 would be the pride of Kannada film industry (Sandalwood) and you have seen the result."
The shooting is likely to be wrapped up by January 2020 and it is expected to be ready for release by April or May. In the second instalment, Sanjay Dutt will be playing an important role of Adheera and Raveena Tondon will be playing Ramika Sen. The whole of India is eagerly waiting for the second instalment of KGF Chapter 1.
