Now, the teaser has clocked in more than 90 million views on YouTube and is still going strong. Apart from Kannada audiences, the teaser has appealed to people from other languages as well. Earlier, the teaser of KGF: Chapter 2 was supposed to release on January 8 on Yash's birthday.
KGF: Chapter 2's shooting is currently underway at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, The makers are planning to wrap up the film by the second week of January. In an interview, Yash said, "When director Prashanth Neel narrated the character of Adheera, he had himself mentioned that this role needs somebody like Sanjay Dutt. He was there in our mind right from the initial stages, and not after we ventured into five languages. Nor it did emerge after KGF became a huge success." KGF: Chapter 2 will release in theatres later this year.
