Even as the sequel to KGF wraps up shooting and readies for a Summer 2021 release, Kannada superstar Yash has moved on to his next project.
That’s right. Yash has zeroed on in his next project. And it’s going to be a slick action thriller directed by Narthan who, like Prashant Neel when he was elected to direct KGF, is relatively new.Narthan has earlier directed a highly acclaimed khaki-coloured action film Mufti in 2017 which was a big Kannada hit.
Says a source very close to Yash, “Yash was very impressed by Narthan and asked Narthan to write a film for him. Narthan brought a couple of scripts for Yash.But somehow they lacked that ‘IT’ quality which Yash was looking for after KGF. Narthan has now written a script which is just what Yash wanted to do after KGF. It is slick and contemporary with terrific action pieces.”
As for the KGF director Prashanth moving on to Prabhas for his next, the source says, “After spending three years together both Prashanth and Yash needed a break from one another. Just like Yash was impressed with Prashanth’s script when he brought KGF to Yash, so too with Narthan whose script has bowled Yash over.It’s time to create another magic.”
