9 Confirmed Facts about KGF Kannada Movie 8th one is my favourite

With all the success stories in the past, now the actor is all set for his new release and the entire Karnataka is waiting to watch their star back on the silver screen. By this time you might have guessed about the movie we are talking about. Yes, it is KGF, the much awaited Kannada movie starring none other than the Rocking star Yash. As the release date is at the close quarters, let us take a look at a few fascinating and officially confirmed facts about KGF on today’s read which will surely add up to your expectations.

1.KGF is getting ready under the direction of Director, Prashanth Neil

Without a second thought, Uggram is one of the most loved movies of Kannada and its roaring success is an attestation to it. This is the movie which gave a strong come back for the actor Murali by breaking all the stereotypes of traditional movie making. The way Prashanth Neil narrated the story of Uggram in the backdrop of music and blood is truly phenomenal. With a director of that stature and an actor like Yash coming together for KGF has completely raised the bar of expectations.

2.KGF was conceptualized when Yash’s Googly was released

Around the time when Prashanth Neil conceptualized the story of KGF, he had seen Yash’s performance in Googly and was impressed. At that point, he had decided that Yash is the best suit for the role though he was not a popular star back than he is today. It was a time when there were talks about the remake of Uggram in Tamil, and Prashanth was persuaded by Yash until he finishes all his commitments. It’s a long journey for KGF and finally, it is all set to release.

Prashanth says, “I had seen a spark in Yash when I watched Googly and we have a big cinema in hand and it is all worth the wait now.”

3.KGF is an underworld story of old Kolar

The team has revealed that KGF is an underworld story of Kolar when it was at its peak. In this context, the movie has been extensively shot in Badami and the whole set was erected to recreate the Kolar of 1970s and 1980s.

4. It took a year and a half for research before the final story was drafted

Speaking about the movie, Prashanth Neil says, “We took almost a year-and-a-half to research the subject and several people were involved. The direction team alone consists of seven people.”

5.KGF is one of the high budget movies of Sandalwood. Nearly 50 Crores

KGF has turned out to be the most expensive movie for Sandalwood. KGF is bigger than the sets and backdrops. The director was little sceptical about the budget. He thought it could be a constraint for the film of this scale. He was also doubtful about the lead role and he has said to the producer, “ I have something which is not feasible for Sandalwood and the film will work for actors like Surya in Tamil.” When the producer Vijay Kiragandur of Hombal films came forward to back the film, Prashanth could not think of any actor than Yash as the actor has that capability to take the responsibility of bigger expectations.

6.Tamannah Bhatia in a Retro number

Tamannah Bhatia in a Retro number

One of the commercial attractions of KGF would be a retro number featuring Tamannah and Yash. It carries the old-world charm of the song ‘Jokae naanu balliya minchu’, reinvented from the 1970 Dr.Rajkumar starred Paropakari. It is said that Tamannah Bhatia is paid a whopping Rs.50 lakh for this performance.

Speaking about her appearance in the song, Tamannah said to media, “This is the first time I will be doing a retro number. I’ve never had such a fun-filled fulfilling experience as I did on this dance sequence. It is a retro cabaret set-up and I’ve never attempted to do this before so, it was a learning experience of sorts.”

7.First Kannada film to have a Five-Language Release

To put it in Prashanth’s words, he says that the team had started the movie on a big canvas but in the process, the producers have decided to venture beyond the Karnataka market and globalize the product.

He said that the idea of five-language release came from the producer, owing to the story being universal irrespective of budget and scale. He said, “I could have made the product in Marathi or in Tulu and still people would have connected with the subject as it has a parallel line drawn throughout the narrative.”

Though the team is looking to create an impact across the borders, Prashanth is clear and said, “Our Primary goal is to satisfy the audience in Karnataka. This is something we don’t want to deviate from.”

8.KGF is likely to be Out as 2 Parts

There has been a speculation that the production team is planning to release the movie in two parts. It is still being the same, no official confirmation has come from the KGF team. However, market experts say that whenever there has been a movie with a limitless budget and a strong story, makers have preferred to bring it in two parts. If KGF follows the mantra of Bahubali, Gangs of Wasseypur, and Raktha Charitra, one can expect it to be out as 2 parts.

9.Release & Trailer Date of KGF

KGF goingto realase on december 21 and trailer on nov 21

KGF being in the final stages of production and soon be going through censor, makers have already confirmed the release date. It is going to hit the marquee on December 21st and trailer is all set to release on November 9th. Though the team had planned earlier for a Christmas release, it has been advanced.

She created history on 13th July 2018 after she became the first Indian women track athlete to win gold at a world championship level. It is an incredible effort from the sprinter. Years of hard work has finally paid back.

This 18 year old is the daughter of a rice farmer Ronjit Das and Junali at Kandhulimari village Nagaon district of Assam. She is the eldest in the family. She has three younger sisters and a younger brother. Hima is in Class XII at a college in Dhing, one and a half kilometers from Kandhulimari.

Hima Das met Nipon Das, an athletics coach with a Directorate of Sports and Youth Welfare during an inter-district meet and soon he began coaching her. According to her coach, she does not get overawed by anybody and does not care about her opponents. In every race, her goal is to beat the best with better timing. Her confidence is the key to her success.

Now Hima Das is part of a group of India athletes who have bagged medals at the World U20 championships, which includes Seema Punia, won bronze for Discus throw, Navjeet Dhillion, bronze for Discus throw and Neeraj Chopra, Gold for Javelin throw.

We are proud of you Hima Das. It is an incredible achievement on becoming the first Indian track athlete to win a gold at any global event. Thank you Hima Das for giving us this happiness.
