It's common knowledge that Sanjay Dutt is playing the antagonist in the highly anticipated sequel to KGF. The character, who goes by the name of Adheera, will be pitted against Rocky, played by Yash.

With the teaser for KGF: Chapter 2 set to release on January 8, fans of the franchise can't wait to catch a glimpse of what the sequel will offer.

The Prashanth Neel directorial is expected to hit the screens this year. Hombale Films, the production house, has issued a press release with Sanjay Dutt answering the burning questions that fans have for him.

Give us some details about your character in KGF: Chapter 2.

Adheera is one of the craziest characters I have played so far, it is fearless, powerful and ruthless inspired by Vikings. There was a lot of physical prep required to become Adheera, about 1.5 hours to do the make-up to get the look and a lot of prep mentally to get into the skin of the character. The character required a lot from me in terms of these attributes.

How was your experience of working with Prashanth Neel?

Prashanth is a very humble guy, it was a very smooth sailing experience to shoot with him. It was my first time working with him and I had all the comfort from him, it felt like I was always a part of this KGF universe. I share a great rapport with him now, we have shared a lot of anecdotes with each other. His work style is different and his direction has helped me learn a lot.

Your character is that of an antagonist, do you like playing a baddie on the big screen?

Every character has its own journey, I enjoy playing characters of this shade. Every role expects different things from you and Adheera did too.

What kind of action and fight sequences can be expected between you and Yash in the actioner?

The film is a sequel of KGF: Chapter 1, so you can expect all that and more. Yash and I have a face-off in the film, obviously which was a lot of fun. A lot of props were involved and the sequences are choreographed beautifully, the film is high on action. Other than that, I want the audiences to enjoy the action in the film without saying too much.

What was your first reaction after the project was offered to you?

It is after a long time that such a role was offered to me, I got pumped and excited for it. The character is strong and charged me up to play the role, it was an immediate yes from me! How different is this character from all the characters you've played before? For me, the script and storyline is what make the character. This one in particular is an insanely charged and ruthless character. This becomes one of my favourite characters in terms of edginess and rawness.
