Yash shares photo from KGF Chapter: 2 shoot as he resumes work after COVID-19 lockdown

Yash marked his return on the sets of KGF Chapter 2 today with a social media post for fans eagerly awaiting the sequel's release. The film industry across the country had to halt work due to the coronavirus pandemic. With the government easing restrictions, production on all stalled projects has kickstarted again.

In August, the makers had shot sequences with actors Prakash Raj and actor-politician Malavika Avinash, who plays news channel head, Deepa Hegde. It was rumoured that Raj would be replacing Anant Nag, which the makers later denied, writes The Indian Express.

Production house Hombale Films' Karthik Gowda had tweeted on 7 October saying that they expect to wrap the shoot by the end of October and then go ahead with the release. Times of India reports that Srinidhi Shetty flew down to Mangaluru for the final leg of the shoot.

Here is Yash's post
