The period, action drama film KGF 2 stars actors Yash as Rocky and Srinidhi Shetty as Reena Desai. Directed by Prashanth, the movie also features an ensemble cast that includes actors Sanjay Dutt, Anant Nag, Achyuth Kumar, Malavika Avinash, Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh, TS Nagabharana, Vasishta N Simha and B Suresha among others.

After the massive box office success of its prequel KGF, fans have been eager to receive updates about KGF 2. Like the prequel, KGF 2 also takes place in Karnataka’s Kolar Gold Fields and revolves around the scuffle between Rocky and Adheera, the latter played by Sanjay Dutt. Bankrolled by Vijay Kiragandur under the banner of Hombale Films, the movie is set to hit the big screens on July 16 this year. Although it was initially slated for theatrical release last October, it had to be postponed in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The soundtracks and background score for the movie will be composed by Ravi Basrur, while Bhuvan Gowda is taking care of the cinematography for the project.
