Kannada star Yash’s upcoming film KGF, which has been in the making for several months, is in the final stages of production and will soon be through the censorship process. The film will hit the marquee on November 16, confirm its filmmakers. Earlier, there were reports of the film being a Christmas release but now it is confirmed that the release has been advanced.

Sources in the trade say that November 16 is the most apt date for KGF’s release, as a couple of biggies will be releasing a week prior as Diwali releases and then a couple of weeks later, one of the biggest films of the year, 2.0, starring Rajinikanth will be out in theatres. KGF will first be released in Kannada, Tamil and Telugu, and then later its Hindi and Malayalam versions will also hit the marquee.

Touted to be a high budget movie in Sandalwood, KGF is directed by Prashanth Neel, who has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues. Vijay Kiragandur is bankrolling the project under his banner Hombale Films. The technical team comprises music director Ravi Basrur, cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda and art director Shivakumar. While Yash and Srinidhi Shetty play the lead pair, the rest of the star cast includes Achyuth Kumar, Nassar, Malavika Avinash, Anant Nag and Vasishta N Simha. The film is narrated by Anant Nag.

The USP of KGF would be a retro number featuring Tamannaah and Yash. Choreographed by Jani master, it is a reinvented version of the song ‘Jokae naanu balliya minchu’ from the 1970 Dr Rajkumar starrer Paropakari. Reports say that Tamannaah was paid a whopping Rs 50 lakh just for this performance.

On doing a retro number for the first time in her career, Tamannaah reportedly told TOI, “This is the first time I will be doing a retro number. I’ve never had such a fun-filled fulfilling experience like I did on this dance sequence. It is a retro cabaret set-up and I’ve never attempted to do this before so, it was a learning experience of sorts.”
