K.G.F: Chapter 2 is an upcoming Indian Kannada-language period action film written and directed by Prashanth Neel. The film is a sequel to the 2018 film K.G.F: Chapter 1 and stars Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Srinidhi Shetty, Raveena Tandon, and Prakash Raj. Initially scheduled for theatrical release on 23 October 2020, the film was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic. The film will be dubbed in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi languages.
Prashanth Neel, worked on the film’s screenplay after the release of Ugramm (2014), and development of the film began in early 2015. However, he decided to split the film in two parts, as the narration of this story is in non-linear format, and the decision to split the film into two parts, also had to with the commercial prospects. In an interview with The Times of India, on October 2018, he added “The scale of the project is huge and we had a scope for a beginning, an interval and an end for both parts, so it made sense for us to release it as two parts”. As for the decision to make it as a multilingual, he says that it was because the film is based on a unique idea and has a universal theme. Prashanth Neel decided to rope in composer Ravi Basrur and cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda as a part of the technical crew for the second part of the film. On December 2020, Prashanth Neel confirmed that there is no third instalment in the KGF franchise.
