Reportedly, the makers of the film are in talks with Amazon Prime Video for the streaming rights on OTT after its big screen release. Film critic Sumit Kadel tweeted, ‘KGFChapter2 may have a theatrical release on September 9, provided the corona virus is under control by then and cinemas are reopened across India, KGF 2.’ However, there is no official confirmation regarding the release date and only speculations of digital release are being made.
‘KGF Chapter 2’ can help revive the box office only when it releases in theatres, which is again a tough decision. Releasing the film across India may incur losses as cinemas will have only 50 percent seating.
This 100 crore film will be released worldwide in Kannada, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. The film has a solid cast including Yash as Rocky, Sanjay Dutt as Adheera, Raveena Tandon as Ramika Sen and Srinidhi Shetty as Reena. The film has been directed by Prashanth Neel.
The film KGF Chapter 1 was released on 21 December 2018, so the teaser release date and time of the second part of the film (KGF Chapter 2) was announced on the same day (21 December 2020) after 2 years. The film was a tremendous success at the box office. In the climax of KGF Chapter 2, both Sanjay Dutt and superstar Yash, who became the villain, will be seen fighting without wearing a shirt. Sanjay Dutt is playing the role of main villain Adheera in this film.
