While Bollywood fans are gearing up for the release of Shah Rukh Khan's 'Zero', there is some silent competition from South lurking in the backdrop. The film in question is none other than Yash starrer 'KGF' which is being released in five languages including Hindi. Now, the makers of the epic looking flick have started promoting their film. One of these events was attended by none other than SS Rajamouli.
The ace director, who has earned national and international acclaim post-'Baahubali 2' had a lot of good things to say about both Yash and 'KGF'. Speaking about the Kannada star, he recalls the moment when he came across his name first. He had heard people talking about a young star on the horizon called Yash. Immediately curious, Rajamouli had asked if he had any connections. To this, he got the astonishing reply that he is becoming so famous because he comes from a non-film industry background.
The director disclosed that Yash's father was, in fact, a bus driver and there is nothing more inspirational than watching a middle-class man's son become a cinema icon. SSR went on to say that in his opinion though, it is Yash's father who is an even bigger superstar than him. Explaining his statement, the filmmaker said that even after his son achieved fame, his father still a bus driver, for he respects his profession so much. With such an ideal work ethic, there is little surprise that his son became a big and successful man.
Speaking about 'KGF', Rajamouli said that he saw some rushes of the film when he bumped into the team in a hotel. The 'Baahubali' helmer added that he was blown away by the visuals and the sheer quality of each frame. He also disclosed how each shot felt very original, which is truly something extraordinary. Well, with the blessings of a juggernaut like Rajamouli, it looks like nothing can stop Yash and 'KGF'. Take a look at his speech here.
Meanwhile, the two trailers of the film have been creating a lot of sensation on social media. The magnum opus is all set to release on December 21, where it clashes with Dhanush's 'Maari 2' as well as SRK's 'Zero'.
