KGF franchise is about the rise of Rocky (Yash), a smuggler trying to take over the gold mine in Kolar Gold Fields. It also stars Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty, and Prakash Raj. The film is compared to similar anti-hero films with Amitabh, such as Deewar, Shakti and Agneepath. In all these films, Amitabh played anti-hero criminals who rise out of nowhere to rule the underworld. The actor was known for his ‘angry young man’ persona, typical of these roles.

During a recent interaction with Bollywood Hungama, one of them sent a question to Yash, asking him if he could remake one of Amitabh Bachchan’s films, which would it be. Yash replied: “Remake pasand nahi hai personally (I do not like remake personally) and with Mr. Bachchan it is better not to touch that. They are classics. Your unka came hai (whatever his work, I do not think that I) would do everything). “

Then the interviewer mentioned that KGF was inspired to some extent by Amitabh Bachchan’s persona, to which Yash replied: “It’s the essence of the belief system, the hero and his heroism – that kind of movie. It has nothing to do with any movie. but in general, the kind of films they make, the essence is the same, what the whole of India wants to see. At least, who I meet, they say they like such films. “

KGF: Chapter 2 is directed by Prasanth Neel, who also had the first film. The film has already broken records for advance booking, even in the North. By Monday, the film had sold out tickets 20 crore in North India, which includes 11.4 crore for the Hindi version only.
