For fans who are hoping for the third part of the ‘KGF’ franchise from Kannada superstar Yash, here is a bit of bad news coming your way.
KGF 3 without Yash?
Kannada film KGF, which was directed by Prashant Neel, starring ‘Rocking Star’ Yash in the lead has become one of the most popular franchises in Indian cinema. The second installment of the franchise, which was released last year, was the third highest-grossing Indian film worldwide.
After gaining popularity last year, the makers are planning the third installment of the popular franchise. And fans across the country are eagerly waiting for updates on the same. Amidst this, sad news for all KGF fans is coming in.
According to TOI, Yash is not doing ‘KFG 3’ next. “Yash doesn’t want to be branded as the ‘KGF’ star like Sean Connery and Daniel Craig who were branded as James Bond. After spending a good five years of his life working on the KGF franchise twice, Yash wants to take a break from KGF,” informs a source very close to the actor.
The Good News
However, the good news is, the project that Yash is now working on will feature him in a role as dynamic and crowd-pleasing as ‘KGF’. “The character Yash is portraying in his next will be completely different in look and personality from KGF,” adds the source.
Speaking about the fame he received through KGF, and the recognition the KFI received from the franchise, the actor said, “When people say I put Kannada cinema on the world map, I feel good about it. When we made KGF we consciously designed it for a pan-India audience. The spoken language is regional, but the spirit of presentation is international or so we’d like to believe,” feels Yash who has a massive fan following among Indians everywhere.”
