KGF director Prashant Neel, who is returning with the second chapter of the acclaimed film, said the team never thought the first part of the movie would resonate so well with audiences across the country.
Written and directed by Neel, ‘KGF’, which refers to Kolar Gold Fields (Karnataka), is a story of Rocky (Yash), who rose from poverty to become the ‘King’ of gold mining.
The two-part multilingual film, the first chapter of which was released in 2018, has become the highest grossing film in the Kannada industry.
The director believes that the human element in the story, is an important aspect for a comprehensive entertainment. He believes it could work for the film. “The human element is the first thing we should put in a big movie. When you talk about a movie bigger than life, that human element brings everything together. For example, the way the characters behave, you should look humane. Time (human element) gave it a lot of prominence, ”the director told PTI.
The movie traces the history of gold mining and the mafia in the Kolar region of Karnataka. If pre-release rumors are to be believed, the film has already surpassed 2.5 million tickets in advance sales. It is followed by another South Indian film, the Tamil movie ‘Beast’, which has sold over 1.8 million tickets.
