The sequel also has Balakrishna, Anant Nag, Malavika Avinash, Saran Shakthi, Achyuth Kumar, Vasishta N Simha, Prakash Raj and Rao Ramesh in prominent roles. For the sequel, Prakash Raj has been bought on board and reports emerged that Prakash Raj was brought in as a replacement for veteran actor Anant Nag. Anant played the key character of the narrator in the first part of KGF.
Clarifying about the same, director Prashant Neel confirmed that Prakash Raj has not replaced Anant Nag and has come on board to play an entirely different character.
Bankrolled by Vijay Kiragandur under his banner Hombale Films, the technical team comprises music director Ravi Basrur, cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda, and art director Shivakumar. Farhan Akhtar is backing the Hindi version of KGF under his production banner Excel Entertainment.
Initially, it was announced that the film will hit the theatres worldwide on October 23, 2020, which has now been hampered due to the pandemic. If the industry grapevine anything to go by, the makers are planning to release the movie on January 14, 2021, on the occasion of Makara Sankranti.
