KGF: Chapter 1 was a mega-hit and set ablaze the box office. The Pan-India film was released in 2018 and received a very highly anticipated response, not only in the South but in the Hindi market as well.
Sanjay Dutt has not joined the shooting as he’s currently on a break for getting treatment for lung cancer. As for Srinidhi Shetty, she will be reprising her female lead role in the sequel as well.
Is KGF based on a real story or not? Is probably a question everyone wants to ask. So, here are some facts.
The Kolar Gold Fields or KGF is for real and situated 100 km from Bangalore. The Kolar Gold Fields is the second deepest mine in the world and to date has mined gold for the past 121 years.
The Britishers used to call Kolar Gold Fields their “Mini England” with much affection. The British government even constructed a lake in Bethamangala in 1903 to supply water to KGF and it’s surrounding townships. Filtered water was also supplied to the mines by the Government Water Works. These factors made Bethamangala a popular sailing picnic spot for the British in KGF.
KGF is also the second city to be electrified in Asia after Japan.
The Main Character
The movie revolves around Rocky Thangam, who was a notorious rowdy. According to sources, in the 80s Thangam had built his own gang and was involved in a lot of illegal activities. However, the director Prashanth Neel has denied in all of his interviews the film is not about or on Thangam.
