Fans of Rocking Star Yash have been waiting anxiously for word on his next film since April this year, when KGF: Chapter 2 came out. While the film ended with the possibility of a third instalment in the KGF saga, during the promotions of the second part, Yash had said that a script was in development for what is to be his 19th film as leading man. Dubbed Yash19, it is one of the most anticipated projects.

For a very long time, it was reported that Mufti director Narthan was the chosen one to helm Yash’s next project. Narthan has been working on this for the last 3-4 years, say industry insiders. The massive success of KGF: Chapter 2 has changed things in the Yash camp. The actor has to be careful about what he chooses to do next because there are expectations of him and whatever he does has to be as good, if not better, as KGF2.

At this point, there were reports that Yash would probably do a film with Tamil filmmaker Shankar. At the same time, producer Vijay Kiragandur of Hombale Films announced that KGF: Chapter 3 would take off by the end of the year, probably sometime in October. He backtracked on this soon enough, as director Prashant Neel is still in the midst of making Salaar with Prabhas for the banner. Once he is done with that, the filmmaker is committed to making NTR Jr’s next, so the timeline on KGF-3 remains unknown.

Earlier today, it was announced that Salaar would be a September 28, 2023 release, well over a year later, while Prashant was quoted as saying that he will start work on NTR31 in April/May of 2023. Where does that leave KGF3 then? Fans reckon that Prashant could manage to finish KGF3 before he embarks on NTR31, as Yash is still maintaining his Rocky Bhai long hair and beard. It is believed that the actor is making a cameo appearance in Salaar too, to connect the film with the KGF verse. There are industry reports of KGF3 starting in December in Mysuru, but the film is supposedly a part of Hombale Films’ slate for 2024. So, what's it gonna be?
