Yash is basking in glory over his last outing at the theatres, KGF 1, turning out to be a huge hit. He is currently concentrating on its sequel. According to an in.com report, Yash happened to get an impressive script from a debut director and has passed it on to his friend, Tollywood actor Prabhas. Apparently, Yash felt that the script suited the Baahubali actor well and therefore wanted him to take a call on it. He also reportedly arranged a meeting between the director and actor. If things go well, this project may materialise.
After the phenomenal success of KGF: Chapter 1, Yash is gearing up for the sequel KGF: Chapter 2. Both the chapters are directed by Prashanth Neel, who has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues. Vijay Kiragandur produced the project under his banner Hombale Films. The film has Yash playing the lead role and paired up opposite him is Srinidhi Shetty.
Meanwhile, Prabhas is expecting the release of his magnum opus Saaho. The film is directed by Sujeeth and bankrolled by V Vamshi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapati under the banner UV Creations on a budget of Rs 300 crore. Its star cast also includes Neil Nitin Mukesh, Lal, Arun Vijay, Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff, Vennela Kishore, Mahesh Manjrekar and Chunkey Pandey in supporting roles. While Prabhas plays the male lead in this action entertainer, sharing screen space opposite him is Bollywood actor Shraddha Kapoor. The technical crew of this film includes R Madhi for cranking the camera and A Sreekar Prasad for editing. Saaho is in the final stages of post-production with its release planned on August 15, Independence Day.
Prabhas is also working simultaneously on his other project, which is directed by KK Radha Krishna. Titled Jaan, Pooja Hegde has been roped in to play the female lead in this film.
