After Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana, it seems like Yash is diving deeper into Bollywood with his plans to collaborate with Shah Rukh Khan
Kannada actor Yash is currently in negotiations for his second Hindi project, and earlier he even stated his wish to collaborate with star Shah Rukh Khan. The actor has already secured his place in Bollywood with the ambitious production Ramayana, which is to be directed by Nitesh Tiwari.
According to an earlier report in the Hindustan Times, the K.G.F. star would start his career in the Hindi industry by playing the role of Ravana in Tiwari's cinematic retelling of the epic.
