Srinidhi Shetty who played female lead in the movie KGF now gearing up for the shoot of KGF Chapter 2. This movie produced by Hombale Films directed by Prashanth Neel, Rocking Star Yash will be seen as ruthless Rocky Bhai. Shooting will begin from the first week of the month of May. She hints that the actual test kicks off now, she phrases with popular dialogue 'Picture Abhi Baaki Hain Mera dost'.
Srinidhi who is preparing for her role in the second part of KGF, she is already part of many intense discussions, workshops with the director. She will be indulging in one of the most occupied schedules ahead. While promoting for KGF she was asked about her duration in KGF, but she self-assured that in the second chapter it will be totally different. When I was narrated with KGF script I wanted to be part of this movie without any hesitation. Reena's role will have much more big importance in the second part. The foremost reason to be patient as I only wanted to concentrate on KGF.
She insisted to not to sign up any other projects instead focus on KGF. Though it might be a risk, I felt it was worth the risk. However, the producer and director have given me the freedom to do another project between chapter one and two. After the release of chapter one the reception was unimaginable, the makers wanted to start the second chapter early than actually planned. There were many projects which they wanted me to be part of the films which required dates during the months of June and October. I would have dropped at least three films in Kannada, two in Tamil and Two in Telugu. I had said to all of them that I would be okay to accept any films after October.
I even know there is lots of work ahead in the second part of KGF, I wanted to give my best instead of fluctuating with other projects. She is working hard even more for the sequel. I am that sort of a person who will not be satisfied that easily. I always believe there is still room for any betterment. Prashanth is very demanding on the sets. He always raises the bar for the actors. Lots of intense scenes involved, I am making all the efforts to better my acting skills working on the diction, of course, can't reveal all the details here. I am into a discussion with the director and the assistants to understand the character so that it helps me in emoting well, says Srinidhi Shetty.
