The actor said, “KGF is a story about a mother who has suffered a lot in her life and wants her son to not live like her. She wants him to be rich at least when he dies. That is a relatable point for the whole of the country. Only 1 per cent of people who are privileged, only they may not relate to it.” KGF Chapter 2 is the final instalment in the KGF franchise. Both the films have been written and directed by Prasanth Neel.
