According to reports online, the release date for KGF Chapter 2 has been delayed again, so when will the movie actually premiere?
With incredible visuals, storytelling and acting, KGF Chapter 1 was a huge success both with the national audience in India and viewers around the world.
The period action film told the story of Raja Krishnappa Bairya “Rocky”, who has the misfortune (or rather fortune) to get involved with the gold mafia.
Millions of fans around the world are patiently waiting for the second chapter to release, especially as this will be the most expensive movie in the history of the Kannada film industry.
However, those fans may be disappointed with the latest information that is circulating online.
KGF Chapter 2: Release date…
- KGF Chapter 2 was scheduled to release theatrically on Friday, July 16th 2021, but new reports indicate that this has been delayed until September 9th.
KGF Chapter 2 was initially scheduled to premiere in late-October 2020 but had to be delayed because of complications associated with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and Sanjay Dutt’s health issues.
A few months later, there were multiple reports that the production team was considering a Sankranthi 2021 (January 14th) premiere. Multiple news outlets then reported that this premiere date was confirmed, but this was not the case.
On January 30th, it was finally confirmed that KGF Chapter 2 would be releasing in summer 2021, with a specific date being revealed as July 16th. However, there have now been reports that indicate KGF 2 has experienced another delay.
Popular film critic Tara Adarsh first posted on Twitter that the July 16th date had been ruled out.
Today, June 23rd, the LetsOTT Global streaming page reported that a September 9th date is being targeted, but is dependent on covid cases reducing in the country.
Interestingly, the page also stated that Amazon Prime is currently negotiating the post-production digital release.
