There are very few films that manage to fetch pan India buzz and KGF Chapter 2 is definitely one of them. Starring Yash in a lead role, the film is set to witness one of the biggest releases in the history of Indian cinema, as it is slated to arrive in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi languages. While posters and teaser have taken the craze to the next level, we have just learnt about the duration of the film.
Speaking of the first part, KGF Chapter 1 was 154 minutes long in duration (2 hours 34 minutes). And now, if the latest reports are to be believed, the upcoming instalment will be around 20 minutes longer than the first part.
To be more precise, what we have learnt is that KGF Chapter 2 to have a duration of 172 minutes i.e. 2 hours and 52 minutes. Still, the film to go through the scissors of the censor board, so we can’t be sure about this reported duration. Nonetheless, expect the Yash starrer to be a long ride.
KGF Chapter 2 is directed by Prashanth Neel. It also stars Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty and Prakash Raj in key roles. The film is a sequel to 2018’s blockbuster KGF Chapter 1. It’s slated to release on 16th July 2021, only in cinemas.
In other news, the film was in talks as reportedly makers were discussing a shift of release date due to the current COVID-19 situation in the country. Even though there’s no official word on the postponement of release, there are chances we need to wait a bit longer as theatres aren’t opening anytime soon.
Speaking of the predecessor, KGF Chapter 1 came to limelights majorly due to its clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero in 2018. Interestingly, the Hindi version of the film had very minimal buzz but took over Zero later with its word-of-mouth. On the commercial front too, it managed to add more numbers in the collection than Shah Rukh’s film, from the second week onwards.
