What could one say about Yash that's not been said already? As the certified Rocking Star of this country, the 35-year-old actor stands tall as one of the most sought-after superstars whose upcoming project is being ardently awaited by his millions of fans. 

And the journey to this point hasn't been an ordinary one and the fact that Yash is self-made superstar in every right makes his success all the more endearing. From his modest entry into the world of television to gradually making his presence felt as a leading man in cinema, Rocky Bhai has seen it all over the past 15-20 years.

In a recent conclave held in Mumbai, Yash was one of the main guests of honor and many looked forward the interaction which occurred amid a lot of scrutiny. The agenda, of course, was the Kannada Film Industry's sudden rise to prominence over the past couple of years and more importantly, his own phenomenal growth as an actor during the course.

"If it doesn't make me sound arrogant, I would like to say that I badly wanted this to happen and I kind of visualized it every day of my life," said Yash in his opening statement, referring to the stellar success of the KGF franchise and also his acting career. He would stress on the word 'badly' one more time to enunicate how much all of this means to him today, considering his humble beginnings. "When someone asks me how I feel about my success, I say I have nothing to explain because I was living this day a few years ago and I have lived this moment back then so it doesn't impact me all that much now," he would add.

Over the course of the discussion, Yash would also speak about how southern Indian cinema has evolved in the eyes of the rest of the country. "People made fun of it in the beginning, said "yeh kya action hai, udd raha hai sab" and things like that," he would say before going on to point that S.S. Rajamouli's Baahubali films changed the landscape for filmmakers from the south. Yash would speak at length about the attitude shift that Kannada filmmakers experienced which helped them in venturing out of Karnataka and taking their films to wider audiences.
