The filmmakers had an idea of ​​what the film could achieve when the teaser was released in January 2021, and when the film’s release was delayed due to the pandemic, it racked up more than 258 million views. “It’s definitely mind-blowing,” Yash said diversity about the box office success of the film. “But the potential of the market was already clear.”

The end credits of KGF: Chapter 2 contain an MCU-style reference to a third chapter. “We’ve already thought of a lot of scenes, me and Prashanth,” says Yash. “There’s a lot of things we couldn’t do in ‘Chapter 2.’ So we know there’s a lot of possibilities, a lot of kick-ass scenes are there. But it’s just an idea. And we just left it there now.”

The “KGF” journey began in 2014, when Kiragandur starred fresh out of production on Hombale’s debut, “Ninnindale.” the late Puneeth Rajkumar, Yash approached. They hit it off and decided to do several projects together. Their partnership began with “Masterpiece”. Neel, who debuted with Ugramm (2014), which Yash was impressed with, had an idea that he pitched to the actor-producer. Part of the story was set in a mine that Yash believed had the potential to become a larger story that Neel developed. After that it was time to wait while Yash fulfilled his other obligations.

“KGF” was supposed to be a movie, but midway through production, Neel decided to split the movie in two because he felt some scenes were rushed and the emotional aspect of it, something crucial to the Indian To attract audiences, no matter what genre it is, had to expand. Production took a month off to work on this aspect. “The best parts were in the second half, that’s ‘Chapter 2’. So I was worried about “Chapter 1” – if that hadn’t worked, we would never do “Chapter 2″. That was the risk we had to take,” Yash said.

The gamble worked. “KGF: Chapter 1” grossed $33 million, was a hit across India and found a wider audience on Amazon Prime Video.

For Yash, nicknamed a “rocking star” by his fans, the worldwide success of “KGF: Chapter 2” is the latest step on a journey that began in his childhood growing up in Mysore. Born Naveen Kumar Gowda to a bus driver father and a housewife father, his childhood dream was to become an actor.

“I never had a plan B, I always thought I was a hero. That’s because growing up, I participated in a lot of cultural activities and I got that extra attention — people used to clap and whistle,” Yash said. “So I think I became addicted to it at a very young age.”

After school and junior college, as his parents could not afford to send him to drama school, Yash moved to Bangalore to work as an assistant director on a film. His parents, always supportive of his decisions, let him go on the condition that when he returned he would have to stay home and complete his studies. “They thought, ok, at most he’ll be there for a day or two, or a week, and he’ll come back. He’ll see what life is,” Yash said.

The film, in which Yash acted as AD, ended in two days and he had no place to stay in the big city. Rather than being discouraged, Yash joined Benaka, a theater company founded by the late playwright B.V. Karanth, and toured Mumbai working behind the scenes. Since he also learned every role that was played, he was enlisted as an emergency understudy when one of the actors was unavailable. This led to small roles and then to television. Film offers followed, which Yash rejected then as now because of the scripts.

Yash eventually made his film debut with a small role in Jambada Hudugi (2007), followed by a supporting role in Moggina Manasu (2008), with Rocky (2008) being his first film as a lead actor. Hit followed hit. The actor is a strong believer in Kannada cinema and used to feel bad when people discriminated against it by calling it small compared to other South Indian film industries. He was instrumental in the fact that the “KGF” films were edited on a large scale.

“So much has changed for our industry just by taking this one step. People received it in all parts of the country and no one expected it. If you believe in your product, you should go out and explore,” Yash said.

The actor believes that as Indian cinema goes international and the world looks to India, there is great potential for both-way collaboration. “I know they have a lot of technology and budgets and all that, but sometimes it’s not just about that, it’s about the content and they want to see other things too, they want to see other cultures too, they want to see our heroes” said Yash. Indian heroism has recently worked in the West beyond diaspora audiences as well, with SS Rajamouli’s “RRR” grossing $145 million.

“The kind of market we have here in India now is definitely something that everyone wants to conquer. And we have another market outside that is untapped,” added Yash. “If the product is good and people accept it, then you get these numbers. So the world is our territory.”
