The talkie portions of the Kannada film KGF has been wrapped up, with only one song left to be shot. The team had been scouting for a suitable actor to shake a leg for the special number and had zeroed in on Tamannaah. She will be joining the sets soon and the song, a retro number, will be filmed soon. It may be mentioned here that Tamannaah had done a special number in Sandalwood in the past in the Nikhil Kumaraswamy starrer Jaguar, so this is her second outing.

Touted to be a high budget movie in Sandalwood, the film 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. A period drama set in the 1970s, KGF will be released in different languages, including Kannada, Hindi, Malayalam, Telugu and Tamil.

The technical team comprises music director Ravi Basrur, cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda and art director Shivakumar. While Yash and Srinidhi Shetty play the lead pair in the film, the rest of the star cast includes Achyuth Kumar, Nassar, Malavika Avinash, Anant Nag and Vasishta N Simha. The film will be narrated by Anant Nag.

The teaser for the film was released on Yash’s birthday on 8 January this year and had garnered more than 1 million views within a day. This has certainly created a lot of expectations for the film. KGF revolves around the protagonist who leads a group of oppressed people against their tormentors.

Made on a budget of Rs 50 crore, the film has been shot extensively in Kolar, Bengaluru, Mysuru, Kolkata, Mumbai and Ladakh. Reports say that the movie is about the life history of the famous Don Thangam.

KGF is slated for release later this year and the release date is expected to be announced soon.
