KGF 2 shooting should be immediately stopped: Karnataka court
A resident of the Kolar Gold Fields area had filed a case in the Kolar court that the sets are causing significant environmental damage
The team, which gave one of the biggest hits of the year in South Indian cinema, KGF, starring Yash, has reunited for the film's sequel, KGF: Chapter 2, which is being shot in huge sets constructed at the Cyanide Hills in the Kolar Gold Fields area.
Meanwhile, a resident of the KGF locality, named Srinivasa, had filed a case in the Kolar court that the sets are causing significant environmental damage to the area. On hearing the case, the Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) court in Kolar Gold Fields has now passed an interim order to stop the shooting, immediately.
However, Karthik Gowda, the executive producer of KGF 2 from Hombale films, says that the present schedule set at the Gold Fields is almost over, and the next schedule will not be happening at the same locality. "We won't be shooting in the KGF area, for now, complying with the court's decision. We will return to the Kolar Fields again only for the final schedule, and by then, this issue will hopefully be solved," he says.
KGF: Chapter 2, directed by Prashanth Neel, is slated for release in 2021 and has Sanjay Dutt playing a powerful villain character called Adheera.
