In ancient times, India was known as the “Sone Ki Chidiya” or Golden Bird due to the presence of the Kolar Gold Fields. K.G.F. was one of the largest gold mines in the world. Unfortunately, the Britishers exploited this mine and took over 900 tonnes of gold to England.

It seems that the current generation is not well-versed with the history of Kolar Gold Fields, also known as K.G.F. However, a highly anticipated and ambitious pan-India film titled ‘Thangalaan’ starring the versatile actor Chiyaan Vikram and directed by Pa Ranjith, will delve into the real story and background of the largest gold mines in K.G.F.
