The makers of the Kannada film released the poster of the Bollywood star’s character on his birthday
Rocky Bhai will have a fiercer and meaner antagonist to tackle in KGF: Chapter 2. The makers of the big budget Kannada film revealed the character poster of Sanjay Dutt’s Adheera on the Bollywood star’s birthday today.
The poster has Sanjay sporting what looks like a chain mail and carrying a sword on his shoulders, while legions of followers are seen in the backdrop. The actor also has his hair braided and slickly pulled back, and the retro sunglasses add to the already menacing look of Adheera.
Sanjay had also shared the image, explaining that working on the movie has been an “amazing” experience.
KGF: Chapter 2, which is directed by Prashant Neel and has Yash reprising his role as Rocky from the blockbuster 2018 release. While sharing the latest poster, the makers also revealed a bit about the carnage Sanjay’s Adheera will unleash in the film. “War is meant for progress, even the vultures will agree with me – Adheera,” was the caption that the movie's official handle had shared along with the photo.
The movie, which will be out in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi, has already pushed its release date, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was set to hit theatres in July but with theatres closed, there are reports that the film is now looking at a release date in September or October.
The upcoming instalment will follow Rocky’s story, where it left off in KGF, while toggling back and forth to the various episodes of his past and present. KGF: Chapter 2 also has Raveena Tandon, Prakash Raj, Anant Nag and Srinidhi Shetty as part of the cast. The movie’s cinematography is by Bhuvan Gowda with Ravi Basrur composing its music.
