At a time when footfalls in cinemas had hit an all time low, Rocking Star Yash’s KGF 2 proved to be a turning point. The film garnered massive footfall and set new box office benchmarks for Indian cinema. Yash’s impactful performance and unmatched screen-presence were lauded globally. KGF 2 registered historic numbers in all five languages and had people flocking to theaters in every part of the country, putting the Kannada film industry on the global map.

Yash’s towering performance, intensity and swagger which were hailed by the masses, became a major factor behind the film’s success. The superstar not only played the lead in the film, but was also the leading visionary behind the PAN India release for KGF. Yash was the one to lead the initiative to ensure a Nationwide release, get in touch with distributors and ensured that the film was dubbed in five languages. And all this at a time when most Kannada films were struggling to secure a release outside the state boundaries.

Today, Yash has cemented his place among the biggest and most loved superstars in the country and has also made the Kannada industry a force to reckon with, turning his dialogue ‘Powerful people make places powerful’, into reality.

Since the release of KGF, audiences are eagerly waiting for details of his next film. While the superstar was flooded with film offers and scripts from the biggest names across the country, Yash bided his time to choose his next.

During this time, there were many rumors and speculations attaching his name to various projects, roles and cameos. But the superstar chose to remain tight lipped until recently, where he revealed that he had already locked his next, tentatively called Yash 19, and has been focussing all his energies on the project. While speaking to a section of the media, the actor said “We are working with earnestness and dedication because the whole country, in fact, the world, is watching. I am aware of that responsibility. We have been working hard for a really long time and what we are putting together will make everyone happy. It will happen very soon.”

The anticipation around Yash’s next is quite high. After putting Kannada industry on the National map and reviving theaters across the country, it will be interesting to see what the actor has in store next.
