Yash starrer KGF was a money-spinner not just in Kannada but also worked wonders in other languages as well. The film traced the history of gold mining and the mafia running it in the generous fields of Karnataka's Kolar region. Now, everyone is eagerly waiting for KGF: Chapter 2 to hit the big screens.
Recently, there was a strong buzz that the makers have approached Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt for a pivotal role in the movie. Well folks, it turns out this piece of news is absolutely true. Recently while speaking to Asian Age, Yash let the cat out of the bag and confirmed that Dutt has been approached for a role in KGF: Chapter 2.

Dutt Has Been Now Offered A Role In The Sequel
Confirming that Dutt has now been approached for KGF 2, Yash revealed, "Yes, we have offered him Chapter 2 of KGF."
Sanjay Dutt To Play This Role?
If reports are to be believed, the actor has been finalized to play the antagonist in the film.
The KGF Franchise Seems More Attractive To Dutt Now
The daily further quoted a source as saying, "The only reason he did not accept KGF Chapter 1 was because it was a regional film. And the main lead Yash was unknown outside Karnataka. Now after Chapter one is a blockbuster and Yash is a household name across the country, the KGF franchise seems much more attractive to Dutt."
Sanjay Dutt had previously worked in a Telugu movie called Chandralekha (1998) which starred Nagarjuna and Ramya Krishnan.
