In July 2019, the makers treated us with the first look of Sanjay Dutt's character Adheera in KGF Chapter 2 and it looked incredible. KGF: Chapter 2 is a sequel to KGF: Chapter 1 starring Yash that was loved by the audiences and which also bagged two National Film Awards this year, for its action and special effects. The sequel will now have Dutt play the role of the lead antagonist in the film. Sanjay Dutt As Adheera in KGF Chapter 2: Did You Know This Is Not Khalnayak Star’s First South Film? Watch VIdeo.
On Wednesday, September 25, Sanjay Dutt began shooting for the film in Hyderabad. Director Prashanth Neel took to Twitter to share first photos of Dutt joining the cast of the film and wrote, "Once a upon a time.. Adheera let's see how this epic story ends #kgfchapter2 shoot at Hyderabad With @duttsanjay sir commences.."
In the pictures, we see Dutt going bald again and this look certainly takes us back to his Agneepath stint where played the iconic baddie, Kanchacheena, except this time, he's seen sporting a beard.

KGF: Chapter 1 was a huge success at the box office and the buzz for the sequel is equally good. With Dutt on board as the antagonist, audiences are certainly looking forward to this film. In the meantime, Dutt was recently seen in Prassthanam which received a lukewarm response at the box office.
