KGF, which stands for Kolar Gold Fields, has made a significant impact in the film industry over the past four years. The first installment, starring Yash as the main character Rocky Bhai, was released in 2018 and received a great deal of success at the box office. This success was followed by the release of the second installment in 2022, which exceeded 1200 crores worldwide and solidified the franchise as a phenomenon.
As a result of the popularity of these films, there has been much anticipation surrounding the release of KGF Chapter 3. However, according to producer Vijay Kirgandur, the pre-production work for the third installment has not yet begun, as the director Prashanth Neel is currently busy with other projects. Kirgandur stated that the film is expected to go into production in 2025, and there are plans to continue the franchise through a fifth installment. It is even possible that the franchise could extend beyond the fifth installment.
In addition to this news about the future of the KGF franchise, Kirgandur also addressed the possibility of Yash not continuing in the role of Rocky Bhai after the fifth installment. He stated that, much like the way that the James Bond series features different actors in the lead role, it is possible that another actor could take on the role of Rocky Bhai in future installments of the KGF franchise.
Overall, the KGF franchise has proven to be a major success in the film industry, and fans are eagerly anticipating the release of the third installment. While the exact release date for KGF Chapter 3 has not yet been confirmed, it is expected to be sometime in 2026. In the meantime, fans of the franchise can look forward to the possibility of even more installments in the future, as the franchise continues to grow and evolve.
