Now, KGF: Chapter 2 is a sequel to the 2018 Kannada film, KGF (Kolar Gold Fields) that has the dynamic star Yash as the lead. The movie was a huge hit, even outside the state, thanks to the involvement of Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment as producers. Thanks to the success of the film, the makers have amped up the scope and reach of the sequel, by casting Bollywood stars Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon in the film. Sanjay Dutt Birthday Special: 10 Interesting Facts About Sanjay Dutt That You Need To Know About Him.

While KGF: Chapter 2 does mark Dutt’s debut in Kannada cinema, it is not his first foray into Southern territory. Way back in 1998, Sanjay Dutt had made a cameo appearance in the Telugu film, Chandralekha. The movie, directed by Krishna Vamsi, was a remake of the Hollywood film, While You Were Sleeping, though it was closer in treatment to Priyadarshan’s Malayalam remake, also named Chandralekha. Before Yash’s KGF, Sanjay Dutt Was Being Considered for Prabhas’ Baahubali and Here’s Why He Couldn’t Be a Part of It.

Sanjay Dutt had played a man who is not mentally well and brings trouble to the protagonist, played by Akkineni Nagarjuna… for about two minutes.

Check out the cameo below:

Interestingly, fellow Bollywood star Anil Kapoor had donned the same role in the Malayalam remake, that had Mohanlal in the lead. The movie was also remade in Hindi with Salman Khan as Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega, where Shah Rukh Khan had done the cameo.

While he had already made his South ‘debut’, KGF Chapter 2 would feature Sanjay Dutt in his first full-length South role. Will he be speaking Kannada in the film? Will we see some terrific action scenes between him and Yash? We are waiting and watching!
