However, the Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan's film Laal Singh Chaddha was also scheduled to be released on the same date as K.G.F: Chapter 2. And we all know that whenever Aamir Khan's film gets released, it's always a hit on box office. However, in an interview to trade analyst Komal Nahta, Aamir said that he apologized to KGF 2 actor Yash, producer Vijay Kiragandur and director Prashanth Neel for choosing the same release date as theirs. He also offered hands on promotion of the film ahead of the film's release. He asserted that he wrote to the KGF 2 team explaining his reason to choose April 14, 2022, as the release date. He stated that ideally, he would never take a date which has already been finalized by the producer of another big film. He expressed that he hated to give the impression that he is trespassing on someone else’s territory. The motive behind choosing the Baisakhi day (14th April), as the release day was because it was the first time of him playing a Sikh character.
He also said that he is a big fan of K.G.F and he did have a heart-to-heart conversation with K.G.F actor Yash. He said that K.G.F and his film are different. His film is about a love story or family and K.G.F is about action. He expects that the two films would hopefully not eat into each other’s collections. However, the Aamir Khan film got postponed to 11 August because they haven't been able to complete the film. And it is somehow good news for K.G.F: Chapter 2.
Meanwhile, Sanjay Dutt, who plays an antagonist in the film, expressed his feeling on how Adheera is one of the craziest characters he has ever played while talking to IANS. He shared his opinions on Adheera as a fearless, powerful, and ruthless character. He also shared about the physical preparation required to become Adheera. He stated that getting ready to play Adheera also involved about 90 minutes-long make-up to get the look and a lot of preparation mentally to get into the skin of the character. He stated that the character demanded a lot from him in terms of those attributes.
However, after the postponement of Aamir Khan's film, it was revealed that the director Prashanth Neel isn’t satisfied with Yash’s intro song in the film. He expressed his desire to reshoot the song. He has laid out a schedule for the same. Reportedly, the song is supposed to be shot in Hyderabad on a 5-day schedule to not avert clash. But let’s see if K.G. F: Chapter 2 is moving on from 14th April 2022’s release.
