The actor was speaking to the media about his upcoming birthday when the question came up.
Audiences who fell in love with Rocking Star Yash’s KGF-1 and have been waiting with bated breath for the sequel had something to look forward to when the makers confirmed April 14 as its release date. In the interim, though, they were hopeful that the team would give them a sneak peek on January 8, which is Yash’s birthday. The actor, though, says that it may not happen.
Speaking to the media at a recent event, Yash said there won’t be a trailer release on his birthday, because the film would still be more than three months away. “We have released a teaser and want to give audiences a more concrete trailer soon, but my birthday is too early a date for that. Fans will have to wait some more time for the trailer,” he said. Incidentally, the KGF: Chapter 2 teaser was released on Yash's birthday this year.
Meanwhile, the Rocking Star urged his fans not to congregate near his home to celebrate his big day. “My birthday is a day for my fans, but right now, the government has imposed restrictions on public gatherings till January 15. We’ve come this far, so let’s continue to follow protocol till such time it is OK to be together again,” he added.
