Bengaluru, June 23 - Director Prashanth Neel's KGF
is arguably the biggest film franchise in India at the moment. There has been a genuine curiosity among the audiences about the KGF films and it keeps growing with each-passing day.
KGF Chapter 2
, which was released in April this year, is the 3rd highest-grossing Indian film of all time at the worldwide box office, and there is genuine excitement about its next chapter which has officially been announced.
When KGF 3 was announced, many people thought the makers are forcibly pushing the franchise to make money as the story of the film ends with Rocky's death. However, director Prashanth Neel said that the making of KGF 3 is out of compulsion.
During a recent interview with a media house, Neel said (via Mirchi9), "KGF 3 is out of compulsion. People are in love with the franchise and the character. We are in a place where we have to make KGF 3. We have the idea for KGF 3. In fact, we have had the idea much before KGF 2".
While the movie has been announced, the question about when it will begin remains unanswered. Director Neel is probably busy till the end of the next year. He is currently busy in Prabhas-fronted Salaar
, and once he is done with it, he will kickstart Jr. NTR's next. We can only assume that KGF 3 will only start from 2024 if Neel doesn't take any other project apart from Salaar and NTR 31.
