South Superstar Yash, who was seen in KGF Chapter 1 and amazed everyone with his performance, says that Sanjay Dutt was always the first choice to play Adheera in the second part. The makers recently unveiled the look of Sanjay Dutt on his birthday and it literally broke the internet.
Yash, during a media interaction, revealed that Dutt was the first and last choice for the film.
He also went on to reveal that he had approached Sanjay to be a part of its first part. But due to some other commitments, he couldn’t do the film then. Yash said, “Sanjay ji was the first choice for the role from the beginning. Even when we planned to make the film only in Kannada, he was choice for the character of Adheera. When Prashant narrated the character, he was hell bent on signing Sanjay. We had even approached him for the first part but he was occupied with some other commitment.”
He further also added, “His addition will be a big boost to KGF franchise. He’s a wonderful actor, and we’re happy he’s on board.”
During an recent event, Sanjay said his character Adheera’s characteristics are quite similar to Thanos from Avengers. He said, “In KGF, Adheera’s character is very powerful and if you’ve seen Avengers, you would have seen Thanos, so Adheera is similar to him.”
