We have now come to know that Sanjay Dutt was the first choice of Yash as well for the role.

Yash.
 Yash.

Mumbai: Written and directed by Prashanth Neel and starring superstar Yash, Kannada-language period action film KGF chapter 1 was a massive hit at the box office and widely appreciated by the masses. While fans were super impressed with chapter 1, the makers announced that they have begun shooting for KGF Chapter 2 with Sanjay Dutt playing the antagonist.

The makers had recently revealed a poster of Sanju Baba in a daredevil look named ‘Adheera’ which amazed the audiences with an intense and never seen before a look of the actor.

 

We have now come to know that Sanjay Dutt was the first choice of Yash as well for the role. A source close to the actors share, “Yash has grown up watching Sanjay Sir and his performances and has always been a huge fan. While the first chapter didn’t have a lead antagonist particularly, but when the script for chapter 2 was locked, Yash was kneed and convinced only Sanjay could play the part. He was only the one who suggested Sanjay’s name to the makers and was hoping patiently that he accepts it. With Sanjay on board now, it’s only a dream come true for rock star Yash who will be pitied against Sanjay in the film.”
