KGF superstar Yash brought in his 33rd birthday with minimum fanfare. He says he is no mood for partying and celebration, what with the death of Kannada’s veteran actor Ambreesh.
That apart this year brought immense joy for Yash. His daughter was born and his new film KGF is a certified hit not only in the South Indian languages but also in Hindi.
Humble and down-to-earth Yash knows he has a lot to be grateful for this birthday. “It’s been a time of amazing happenings in my life.Everyone around me wants to celebrate. But I really don’t think it’s right to clap your hands and cheer for yourself. Let the world celebrate my success. That’s the best gift I can give myself.”
Yash is deeply gladdened by KGF’s success specially as the first Kannada film to cross the 100-crore mark in Karnataka. “When my producer Vijay Kirgandur, director Prashant Neel and I set out to make this film our aim was to give the Kannada film industry the status and glory it deserved.We felt the other South Indian film industries had marched forward. We needed to do the same. To me, the respectability and love KGF has got for the Kannada film industry is all the reward that I need.KGF is not being seen as a regional film.What more could I ask for? God has been kind.”
