Reportedly, Prashanth Neel has locked the rough cut of KGF 2 very recently. The makers now want to complete the censor formalities at the earliest so that they can start planning the optimal release date.
KGF 2’s rough cut has a run-time of around about 175 minutes and this is prior to the censor scrutiny. The film will be presented to the censor board very soon. The makers are confident that the film will be accredited a U/A certificate.
The makers of KGF 2 had already announced that the film will be releasing on 16th July but they might have to reconsider their options given the onset of Covid's second wave and its effect on theatrical business in India. There is no conclusive update on the possible postponement of the film’s release though.
Prashanth has already shifted his focus onto Prabhas’s Salaar which hit the floors recently. He is simultaneously monitoring the post-production of KGF 2 and planning the forthcoming schedule of Salaar. He is in talks with top stars like Jr NTR, and Allu Arjun for his next project.
