    Yash excited about ‘KGF: Chapter 2’

    Actor Yash is looking forward to the second chapter of upcoming Kannada action-drama “KGF”, and says the scale of presentation of the sequel will be higher with “a couple of very complex action scenes”.

    Following the runaway success of “KGF”, which emerged as the first Kannada film to breach the Rs 200 crore club worldwide, the hype for “KGF: Chapter 2” has reached unprecedented heights. And Yash feels there are “huge expectations to live up to”.

    Excerpts from the interview:

    Months after its release, “KGF” continues to run in many centres?

    We’ve been tracking its course through the weeks and frankly, though we expected the film to succeed, the level of success has left us quite dazed.

    So “KGF” part two?

    We will go on the floors at the end of April or the beginning of May. We’ve locked in the script and it’s now in pre-production. The scale of presentation this time would be much higher. Now that “KGF” is a recognisable brand, we have huge expectations to live up to. Not that, we were any less careful in the first part. Only technically this time we need to be a little more sophisticated. There are a couple of very complex action scenes in the sequel. For this, we may get help from foreign technicians.

    Do you feel Indian technicians lag behind in action scenes?

    Not at all! In fact, I believe Indian technicians are the best in the world. In the first chapter, we achieved everything with Indian technicians and most of them were from Karnataka. This time again, we will be using the same team. Only if foreign technicians are required would we consider them. Only because they’ve the resources that we perhaps don’t. Otherwise, we don’t lag behind in talent.

    Are you looking at penetrating the international market with part two?

    The first part too penetrated the international market, though not as much as we would have liked. This time, we hope to be better equipped to make inroads abroad. Lots of foreigners have watched “KGF”. This time we hope to make a world-class film.

    You did consider doing something else before doing “KGF” again. I remember you told me that the last time we spoke?

    I did. But then audiences expectations are so high we don’t want to disappoint them by breaking their concentration from the first part to the second. If the second part comes later, it would be of no use. People really want to watch it now. The most important factor for doing “KGF 2” right after the first chapter is my look.

    How is your recently-born daughter doing? What have you named her?

    We can only name her after five or nine months. We will have a big ceremony after five months where her name will be officially announced. She will be named after a Hindu goddess.

    Success hasn’t changed you at all?

    I am no stranger to success. What this film did was to broaden my fan base many times over. If I was a newcomer in “KGF”, you may have found me walking with my head in the clouds.

    Your message to fans?

    Please give the second chapter of “KGF” even more love than you gave the first chapter.

    KGF’ success has boosted morale of Kannada film industry: Yash

    0

    Actor Yash believes the phenomenal success of “KGF: Chapter 1”, which struck gold at the box office and won over audiences across languages, has given the Kannada movie industry a platform to dream big and make films without inhibitions.

    Prashant Neel-directed “KGF” is the first Kannada film to breach into the Rs 200 crore club worldwide.

    The film was dubbed and released in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam. It did exceptionally well in all languages.

    “The success of ‘KGF’ means a lot to the Kannada industry, especially to a lot of our talented technicians who don’t get the due they deserve. This success has boosted the morale of the Kannada industry. It has justified the talent of Prashant Neel,” Yash told IANS in an interview.

    He said the success of “KGF” has made people take the Kannada industry “seriously”.

    “The perception about Kannada industry has changed. People across industries are now taking us seriously. A lot of our talented technicians have been looking for a platform and ‘KGF’ has provided them with that pedestal. This success means a lot to all the untapped talent of our industry,” he said.

    Yash still sounds grounded, in spite of delivering one of the biggest blockbusters in recent times. He said he doesn’t like to dwell upon success or failure for too long.

    “If you dwell upon success or failure for too long, you can’t move ahead and achieve what you want. I’m glad ‘KGF’ turned out to be a blockbuster, but honestly, the process of making the film excited me more than the result. As an actor, this success would help me take bigger steps,” he explained.

    It has been over three months since the release of “KGF” and it is all set for its television premiere on Sony Max on March 9.

    Yash is eagerly looking forward to the TV premiere. He says as much as people enjoy watching movies in cinemas and on streaming platforms, the reach of television is still unprecedented.

    “Given the population of our country and considering how many people actually show up in cinemas to watch a film, I believe the reach of television is still phenomenal and is a big deal. A lot of people who watch a film in a theatre would like to revisit it on TV with their entire family and that’s why television premieres are important,” he said.

    Yash is gearing up to commence shooting for “KGF: Chapter 2” from April. He says it will be “bigger” and “better” than the first part.

    “When we made ‘KGF: Chapter 1’, we had our own inhibitions and restricted ourselves in some way. But with this kind of success in our side, we are going all out to make the second part. We now know people are keenly looking forward to the second part and we can deliver it without any reservations. We have reserved the best for chapter 2,” he added.

    US box office : KGF gets respectable run, others turn out to be disasters

    Three out of the four notable films that released last Friday are heading towards disaster at the US box office. Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero disappointed the trade circles big time with its embarrassing first weekend run. Telugu films Antariksham and Padi Padi Leche Manasu couldn’t attract audience because of the below par reviews and poor word of mouth. Kannada period film KGF managed to earn a respectable run in the just concluded weekend in overseas.

    Zero, which started off on a slow note in overseas with $ 350 K on Friday, had an awful weekend as it collected dismal revenues on Saturday( $ 368K) and Sunday ( $ 270K). With just over $ 1M gross, the film is heading towards becoming a huge disaster in overseas.

    Tollywood’s first space thriller Antariksham failed to convince overseas audience as the first weekend collections are very disappointing. After taking a moderate start with $ 91K on Thursday premiers, the Sankalp Reddy directional thoroughly struggled on the next three days to set the cash registers ringing. On Friday and Saturday, the film collected $ 63K and $ 77K. By the end of Sunday ( $42K), the total gross is $ 275K. With 3 Crores at stake on Antariksham, the distributors are going to suffer a loss of nearly 2.5 Crores due to the disastrous run.

    Another Telugu film Padi Padi Leche Manasu is heading towards a huge loss venture for the overseas distributor. The film started off slowly with $ 75K from Thursday premiers, but couldn’t add much it’s tally on the next three days as it collected $ 44K, $50K and $30K. With $ 200K, the distributor might not even recover the expenses and will lose the entire investment of 3 Crores. Both films were distributed by Nirvana Cinemas.

    Kannada film KGF managed to collect decent revenues in the first weekend due to good word of mouth. After a good start with $ 62K on Thursday, the period drama took lead over Telugu releases as it collected $ 59K, $ 102K and $ 80K in the first weekend to take the tally past $ 300K.
