Yash, the actor who shot to fame through his movie KGF, is completely elated today. KGF was directed by Prashanth Neel, a young director who worked on movies such as Ugramm and Agastya previously.
Today, KGF stands as one of the highest grossing movies of the year, next to the sensational project by Rajamouli, Baahubali: The Conclusion. Recording collections of over 175 crores all over the globe, KGF is a clear winner when it comes to winning the hearts of the audience and the critics. KGF was released in 2,400 screens all over the world on the 21st of December, 2018 and was dubbed in 4 languages.
While the Hindi version was released by Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment and Anil Thadani’s AA Films produced KGF. The Hindi version received a fantastic response, grossing Rs. 31.7 crores, while the first week collections were close to Rs. 21.2 crores. The second week collections were pretty decent and were over Rs. 10.5 crores in total.
KGF is quickly winning the hearts of the audience from other states as well. Judging by the figures, KGF will continue to be on an ascent until it faces some stiff competition from movies in local languages, which are due to hit theatres this Sankranthi season.
The director of KGF, Prashanth Neel, already commenced working on the sequel of KGF, which is already 20 % done. While the next schedule of KGF Chapter 2 is all set to commence from the summer of 2019, Prashanth is eyeing this year’s 21st December for the release of KGF Chapter 2.
