The makers of KGF: Chapter 2 had probably not expected the response they have received for merely announcing that the first look of the film will be unveiled on July 29, two days from now. The film is the much-awaited sequel to Kannada star Yash’s KGF: Chapter One. The film, which released nearly two years ago, received terrific response from the audience for its gritty and engaging narrative and superlative performances.
In order to take the experience a few notches higher, the makers have roped in Sanjay Dutt as the villain in Chapter 2 and Raveena Tandon Thadani in a pivotal character, which is expected to make the film more palatable for the Hindi speaking audience. Sanjay Dutt turns a year older on July 29 and the makers have decided to unveil the film’s first look to coincide with the big day and make the day special for the actor who makes his debut in Kannada cinema with KGF Chapter 2.
In a matter of a few hours, the Twitteratti were up in excitement. If the number of tweets is something to go by, #KGF 2 has surpassed the popularity of most of the films in the recent history. A total of six hashtags associated with it. @TheNameIsYash has found mentions in more than 75K tweets while @KGFChapter 2 has crossed 156K which is closely followed by @YashBoss with more than 106K tweets.
