Curiosity abounds about Yash's next after KGF-2

Although there are whispers of possible collaborations, the Rocking Star has not made any formal announcement about his next project yet.

Ever since Rocking Star Yash finished work on KGF: Chapter 2, his fans have been anxiously waiting to hear about what he plans to do next. While other big stars have been announcing and beginning work on new films, like, for instance, Challenging Star Darshan’s #D55 with the Yajamana team, Puneeth Rajkumar’s James or Sudeep’s Vikrant Rona, for that matter, Yash has been tight-lipped.

Industry experts believe that the actor, whose KGF: Chapter 1, was quite a phenomenon, will wait for the sequel to drop to announce his next. But the film is a good seven months away, given that its release has been announced for April 14, 2022, which will be a very long wait indeed. A birthday announcement on January 8, would seem more apt. Even though there were reports of a possible collaboration with Mufti maker Narthan, there have been no reported developments on that front since then. According to industry rumours, Yash is being sought by big production houses from Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Hindi for pan-Indian projects, but the actor has reportedly not given his nod to any yet.

Meanwhile, what’s interesting about the April 14 release date of KGF-2 is that it puts the Yash starrer in a direct clash with director Prashant Neel’s next, the Prabhas-starrer, Salaar, which is being bankrolled by the same production house, Hombale Films. If they actually go ahead and release two pan-Indian films on the same day, that would be quite something in the history of Indian cinema.This is unlikely to pan out, though, and the production house will prioritise KGF-2, which is ready to hit theatres. 

Besides Yash, KGF-2 also stars Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon and Srinidhi Shetty in pivotal roles.
