The film is finally releasing on April 14, 2022.
Kannada superstar Yash, fondly called the Rocking Star, is celebrating his birthday on January 8. On the occasion, the makers of KGF: Chapter 2 dropped the new poster for the most-awaited film by the actor. The poster features the stylish actor looking dapper and fierce while suited up. He is seen standing next to a signboard that reads "Caution... Danger Ahead," hinting at his character Rocky's intensity in KGF: Chapter 2.
While sharing the poster, Hombale Films captioned it on Twitter as "Caution, Danger ahead! Birthday wishes to our ROCKY BHAI @Thenameisyash. #KGFChapter2 @prashanth_neel @VKiragandur @HombaleGroup @duttsanjay @TandonRaveena @SrinidhiShetty7 @VaaraahiCC @excelmovies @AAFilmsIndia @DreamWarriorpic @PrithvirajProd #KGF2onApr14 #HBDRockingStarYash."
KGF: Chapter 2 also features Sanjay Dutt as the main antagonist, Adheera, Srinidhi Shetty as the female lead, Reena Desai, Raveena Tandon as PM Ramika Sen, and Prakash Raj as Vijayendra Ingalagi.
In the second instalment, Rocky (Yash) becomes the uplifter of individuals struggling at the KGF by assisting and fighting for them, and he knows the changing dynamics between politicians and gangsters in the gold business, as well as having to face his greatest opponent, Adheera (Dutt).
Back in 2019, it was announced that Dutt had been cast in the lead role of Adheera, the major antagonist. During an interaction, he likened his character to Thanos, revealing that he was "presented to be a menacing character with scary makeup" and that it was a part he wanted.
The role of Prime Minister Ramika Sen is being portrayed by Tandon, who admitted that "it was a challenging persona to portray" on the big screen.
KGF: Chapter 2 was supposed to hit theatres on October 23, 2020, to coincide with the Dusshera festival. However, because of the COVID-19 outbreak in India, the publication was postponed. The filmmakers stated in January 2021 that it would be released in theatres on July 16, 2021. It was, however, postponed once more for the same reason. The revised release date, April 14, 2022, was revealed in August 2021. It will be released in Kannada, as well as dubbed Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, and Malayalam versions.
