KGF Chapter 1 completed its historic 50Day run recently and still going strong with packed houses. KGF also premiered on Amazon Prime a few days back. The man behind this magnum opus director Prashanth Neel shares his joy and excitement. Audiences enjoyed the movie, what any film-maker can ask more than. I am really happy with its massive success. Neel speaks in detail in recent media interaction.
Prashant Neel feels that the success of KGF belongs exclusively belongs to two persons Rocking Star Yash and Vijay Kirangandur. These two-person literally motivated and pushed the team to go beyond the limits. I was not sure if film to meet the expectations of pan India audience. But both of them had immense conviction and want to release the movie in multiple languages. They were the persons who promoted movie globally. Special mention to music director Ravi Basrur, cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda, art director Shivakumar, editor Srikanth and rest of the crew who put in a terrific show.
I was not very sure to make KGF in two parts when I commenced the project. It's after I started the project then i came to the conclusion that film can be made in two parts. After a long discussion for about 20days, we finally decided to make this film in two parts and convinced that this would our main asset. Whether it will succeed or not we have wait until the second part releases. But I feel that the second chapter will be bigger than KGF chapter 1.
Prashanth Neel confesses that KGF Chapter 2 will be his best till date in terms of writing. Most of the writing part has happened on sets of the movie. I somehow feel that writing in the second chapter will be on the next level when compared to his previous and also his upcoming movies.
We will kick off shooting for KGF Chapter 2 from the month of March. I will work like a devil for this part, Neel smiles. We took almost two years to complete shooting for KGF part one and now we are planning to complete KGF Chapter 2 within one year. Hope we succeed in filming as planned and deliver the product as soon as possible, Neel signs off.
