Let me tell you, KGF Chapter 2 was scheduled to be released on July 16 this year, but the film could not be released due to the closure of theaters due to the outbreak of the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic. There were reports that the film might release in September, but the makers denied it and said that no date has been fixed. After this, the news of its release in December also came. However, these have not been confirmed.
On July 29, Sanjay Dutt's birthday, fans were expecting that the release date of the film might be announced, but only the poster was released. Sanjay Dutt is playing the main villain named Adheera in the film. Yash plays the character of Rocky in the film. Raveena Tandon will also be seen in an important role.
