The timeline on the proposed making of the third chapter in the KGF universe keeps changing. Last year, after the massive success of KGF: Chapter 2, and the fact that a mid-credit scene teased a possible third instalment in the franchise, production house Hombale Films’ co-founder Vijay Kiragandur had not only confirmed that they would be making another film in the series, but also that they could go on floors as early as October-November. This, of course, was negated shortly after by Hombale Films executive producer Karthik Gowda, who is the banner’s man on the ground and handles production activities.

For a while then, there was no update on when KGF-3 could take off, but the assumption was that it would only be after director Prashant Neel completes his Tollywood commitments, including Salaar with Prabhas for Hombale Films, which is still ongoing and another with Jr NTR. About a week ago, in an interview, Vijay Kiragandur said that KGF: Chapter 3 was on the banner’s roster for 2025, which threw out all speculation that Yash was maintaining his long beard and locks for the third film.

Yash, who is yet to announce his next film, is rumoured to be collaborating with KVN Productions on a big-budget production, likely to be directed by Narthan of Mufti fame. #Yash19 has no timeline yet. Meanwhile, the latest news that Prashant has signed up for a third Telugu project could just mean that KGF-3 will be delayed further. For starters, Salaar is still in production and Prashant will be busy till its September release, after which he begins work on NTR Jr’s film. KGF-3 will be the next on his roster only if Yash is free by then. Given how long Yash took in perfecting the KGF franchise, it is highly unlikely that he will rush through with his next. So, in all probability Prashant will get busy with his third Telugu film.

Of course, amid all this, there is also the rumour that all is not well in the Hombale Films-Yash camp. So, it remains to be seen if and when KGF-3 does get made.
