A few months ago, the sequel went on floors. While it was speculated the makers have approached Sanjay and Raveena Tandon for special roles, nothing was confirmed. Then, the makers of KGF: Chapter 2 dropped a poster teasing the first look of the character Adheera (played by Dutt), while building anticipation around the film. Raveena's role was also confirmed later.

Dutt will reportedly be seen playing the antagonist in the movie.
One of the most successful films of last year was KGF: Chapter 1, starring Yash. The movie, that released alongside Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero, performed remarkably well at the box office.
Starring Yash in the lead, the narrative of the first part follows an underdog who later becomes a dangerous gangster. The upcoming sequel is said to follow the power struggle between Rocky (Yash) and Adheera (Sanjay).
Helmed by Neel, the film will also feature Srinidhi Shetty in a lead role. The first instalment of the film was also directed by Prashanth. The upcoming film will release in multiple languages.
Sanjay was last seen in his home production, Deva Katta's Prassthanam, the remake of yet another South film. He will next appear in Mahesh Bhatt’s comeback directorial Sadak 2, and Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Panipat.
