Interestingly, being a highly awaited movie, the telecast on mini-screen might offer KGF a record TRP. Also, the COVID-19 lockdown and the prime-time slot will prove to be an advantage for the telecast. The movie written by Prashanth Neel has been bankrolled by Vijay Kiragandur.
Apart from Yash, KGF: Chapter 1 also stars Srinidhi Shetty, Archana Jois, Anant Nag, Ramesh Indira, Ramachandra Raju, Vasishta N Simha and Achyuth Kumar in pivotal roles. The KGF film revolves around Raja Krishnappa Bairya aka Rocky (essayed by Yash), who is born poor and arrives in Bombay in the 1960s, in search of power and wealth as desired by his ailing mother.
