The highly anticipated sequel of blockbuster KGF, KGF Chapter 2, recently hit the theatres and took the box office by a storm. While the first part released in 2018 and turned out to be a big hit, grossing 200 crores worldwide, the Chapter 2 has also managed to break a few records. Superstar Yash, who played the lead in both the parts, has once again proved his worth to his enormous fan following.

KGF Chapter 2 has sold about 17.1 million movie tickets through BookMyShow. It managed to surpass the record set by Prabhas starrer Baahubali 2. However, KGF Chapter 2 is yet to beat the amount of money collected by Baahubali 2. It has managed to collect 1,230 crores globally, and that is no small feat.

Fans had been expecting a sequel of KGF for the longest of times, and while it was originally supposed to have a digital release in August 2021, the makers decided to push the release date and opt for a theatrical release, as they thought that watching it on a small screen won’t do any justice to it and will also hamper business. Today, even after having been released more than a month ago, tickets are being booked for this movie at a staggering rate.

Directed by Prashanth Neel, KGF 2 boasts of an impressive line up, starting with superstar Yash, who plays the lead role of Rocky bhai, and Srinidhi Shetty, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Prakash Raj, Garuda, who also happens to be Yash’s driver and bodyguard in real life, and others in key roles.

To celebrate the success of KGF Chapter 2, the makers decided to make the movie available on OTT giant, Amazon Prime for renting out. Both Prime members and non-Prime members can get early access to the blockbuster film before it becomes available digitally, by paying Rs 199, so as to enjoy the movie at their own leisure.
