In a special note to fans that he shared on social media last night, Yash said that the wait will be worth it and added that he won’t be in Bengaluru on his birthday and will hence not be able to meet and greet them.
A year ago, all eyes were on Rocking Star Yash, as fans eagerly awaited news on the trailer of KGF: Chapter 2. The hope was for it to be released on the leading man’s birthday, January 8. Cut to now, and the spotlight is still on Yash, although, this time around it is about news on his next, which has been dubbed #Yash19. Since the release of KGF2, the most widely circulated question has been about what the actor will do next, who will he collaborate with, etc.?
In the last 8-9 months, there have been several rumours about the possibility of Yash doing a film with Mufti maker Narthan, or Tamil filmmaker Shankar. There was also buzz that he will focus on KGF: Chapter 3 next, given that Hombale Films co-founder Vijay Kiragandur had made an announcement to that effect shortly after the mega success of KGF: Chapter 2. Yash has never confirmed or denied any of this, and each time the question was directed at him at public forums, he has maintained that he is working on something and that he will make an announcement when the time is right.
Yash is, no doubt, one of the biggest stars in India right now and as someone who has seen his fair share of failure and got to this level of stardom on account of sheer grit and determination, he knows how fickle the industry can be. He cannot afford a misstep – that will be a costly mistake; one that he wants to avoid at all costs. This is why Yash has been in no hurry to jump into his next project to capitalize on his current stature in the industry.
Even though Yash or his team has made no promise of a birthday announcement about #Yash19, the buzz was strong that he would oblige fans after all. Last night, though, the Rocking Star clarified yet again that he’s not ready to talk about what he’s been working on. In a post addressed to his fans, who he called his strength, Yash wrote, “The effort you all put in to showcase your love and affection all year round and especially on my birthday, fills my heart with gratitude. I have never been a birthday person, but over the years, witnessing the enthusiasm with which you celebrate and being able to meet you in person to mark the day, has made it special. “
He continued, “I am working towards clinching something that I believe in and am passionate about. You are the ones who empower me to think bigger and better. When I meet you next, I want to share that news and all the details with you. To be able to do that, I need more time, which seems unlikely by 8th of Jan. So, this year, I ask you all for a specific gift – the gift of your patience and understanding. This year, on my birthday, I won’t be in town and will not be able to meet you all. However, every wish, every gesture means a lot to me. And I promise you, I will make it worth the wait.”
