Kannada superstar Upendra will be seen next in R. Chandru’s Kabzaa. Baadshah Kichcha Sudeep is also playing an important role in this Sandalwood biggie. The film’s teaser was launched online recently and netizens loved it but they compared it with Yash’s KGF. After the comparison with Prashanth Neel’s film, Kabzaa star Upendra finally opened up about the problem.
People comparing Kabzaa with KGF
Kabzaa chronicles the rise of the Indian gangster and is set in pre-Independence India. The teaser which was released recently is quite impressive but many netizens criticized that the movie is similar to KGF. The shots and theme in the teaser made them say so. Though the film’s plot is completely different from that of KGF, netizens found many resemblances between both films.
The makers of Kabzaa have responded to the ongoing KGF comparison. Earlier in an interview, Chandru noted that “KGF is my inspiration. For me to score a goal, I first need to see the goal post. I feel very proud of Prashanth Neel. He did KGF and made the whole country’s head turn. So, I realized that there is a market for a film with such production value. The language was not a barrier. I have channeled all my experience to make a Hollywood-like film.”

Here’s the teaser:
Meanwhile, Upendra said that he was happy that the film was being compared to KGF. “We must not take these criticisms seriously. Previously people use to come to me and say, ‘Why don’t you make movies like KGF?’ and now after Kabzaa teaser release they say, ‘They have copied just like KGF’. It’s just the mindset of people they will criticize for everything. It’s just like people criticize the cold weather in winter and pray for summer to come early. The same people will again criticize the summer and pray for the cold. So these people will criticize you for everything. Can’t help such people,” Upendra said laughingly.

The Kabzaa teaser might have some similarities with KGF but it’s too early to take a call. A trailer with clear narration might be a good answer and we need to wait for the film to release before making such comments.
