Director Prashanth Neel has upped the ante in the sequel. Besides the scale, scope and ambition, he has added a slew of new stars to the cast to make it more appealing to people across the country. While the first film predominantly featured actors from the Kannada film industry, the sequel will boast some Bollywood stars in significant roles.
Prashanth has roped in Sanjay Dutt to play the main antagonist Adheera. “The character of Adheera in KGF is very powerful. If you have seen Avengers, you know how powerful Thanos is. Adheera is as powerful as him. In KGF’s first chapter, Adheera comes only in the end, but in the second chapter, he has a very strong presence and getup. This is the character I was looking for, and it has come to me,” Sanjay had said earlier.
The new additions to the star cast also include Prakash Raj and Raveena Tandon.
