Latest reports suggest that Bollywood actor Sanjay has been roped in to play the antagonist in KGF Chapter 2. Kannada star Yash confirmed the news that the makers of the film have approached Dutt with the role.
In a recent interview to The Asian Age, Yash said that Dutt was offered a role in Chapter 1 but couldn't come on board. He said, “We had offered him Chapter 1, which he did not accept perhaps for reasons of date availability. But yes, we have offered him Chapter 2 of KGF.”
