A court order restraining the cast and crew of KGF 2 from shooting in the Kolar Gold Fields, brought the shooting to a grinding halt last month. But now this week the shooting has resumed, albeit at a different location, in Hyderabad.
Speaking from Hyderabad the film’s leading man Kannada superstar Yash says, “It was a small break. Someone with environmental concerns got a restraining order against our shooting in the Kolar Gold fields. There was just two days of shooting left on that location. Our legal team is working on it. As soon as we get permission to shoot again, we will return to Kolar.”
In the meanwhile the crew has shifted to Hyderabad. Informs Yash, “We are not shooting the same sequences here that we were shooting at the Kolar Gold Fields. Except for two days’ shooting which we will attend to as soon we get permission, we have finished everything in Kolar. Until then we will shoot other scenes in Hyderabad, as per schedule.”
KGF 2 also stars Sanjay Dutt alongside Yash in a powerful antagonist’s avatar. “Obviously in a film where the protagonist’s character is so powerful, the antagonist has to be just as powerful,” reasons Yash..
