Meanwhile, the film will still go toe to toe in the south with the Tamil film Beast, which stars Vijay and Pooja Hegde and releases on April 13. The film is expected to surpass KGF 2 in the Tamil and Malayalam language markets at least. But it does not quite have the same visibility in the Hindi belt as KGF 2.
