A new poster of the upcoming Kannada film, KGF has been released by the makers. This comes right after the release of the teaser. The movie is being presented by Excel Entertainment in association with AA Films. KGF stars Yash and Srinidhi Shetty as the main leads. In the latest poster, we see Yash standing on the edge of a mine, with his back towards the camera. The full form of the movie is also unveiled through the poster- Kolar Mining Fields. The story will be told through two movies, the first chapter of which is KGF.
The period drama traces the tenure of the late 70s and will be made in two parts. The movie also stars Ramya Krishna, Ananth Nag, John Kokken, Achyuth Rao alongside Yash and Srinidhi. KGF is a Homabale Films production. It is being directed by Prashanth Neel, known for Ugramm. Ravi Basrur has composed the music for KGF.
KGF is Kannada's most expensive & ambitious project. The project would be released in four languages- Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada. And that is not all, KGF will also be dubbed in Chinese and Japanese. Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment are quite excited to present the movie. Both Ritesh and Farhan shared the poster of the film on their social media pages. KGF Chapter 1 which is slated to release on December 21, 2018.
Well, this is where the story gets really really interesting. The biggest movie of the year, Zero, is also releasing on December 21. The movie stars Farhan Akhtar's good friend Shah Rukh Khan as the main lead. Earlier, upon Shah Rukh's request, Riteish Deshmukh had pulled his Marathi film, Mauli, from its December 21 release. In response, SRK has tweeted, while addressing Riteish as his little brother, "I am so happy to have ‘asked’ something of a friend who kept my self-respect higher than his own need."
We wonder if Shah Rukh Khan made the same request to the makers and distributors of KGF Chapter 1. Well, even the request was made, we know what Farhan and Riteish's decision was on the matter. Which movie are you going to watch on December 21 - Zero or KGF?
