Sanjay Dutt Confirms Playing Adheera in Yash's KGF Chapter 2, First Look Poster Revealed
The much-awaited announcement of Sanjay Dutt's casting in KGF: Chapter 2 has been confirmed by the makers and the actor himself. The Yash-starrer sequel will see Sanjay as Adheera, the prime antagonist in the film. KGF: Chapter 2 will mark Dutt's foray into South Indian cinema. The first look of Dutt from the upcoming film was also revealed on Twitter on Monday, which also marks the actor's 60th birthday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the character poster from the upcoming film and wrote, "BIG ANNOUNCEMENT... Sanjay Dutt as #Adheera in #KGFChapter2... #SanjayDuttAsAdheera."
Sharing the poster on his handle, Dutt wrote, "Thank you 🙏 Truly happy and excited to be a part of #KGF as #Adheera @TheNameIsYash #KGFChapter2 (sic)."
A couple of months back, the sequel went on floors and it was speculated that the makers have approached Dutt and Raveena Tandon for a special role.
While nothing was confirmed earlier, Yash had stated that they are in talks with Dutt about playing the villain. A few days ago, the makers of KGF: Chapter 2 dropped a teaser poster teasing the first look of the character Adheera, while building anticipation around the film and Dutt's birthday.
