The director said, “When we were writing the film, Sanjay sir’s name we had already written before anyone when we started penning for chapter 2, we wanted somebody who is very powerful for the role of the Prime Minister. I wanted somebody who was proper Hindi speaking and somebody who has mass and we found the best mass Prime Minister that you’ll probably get to see.

To the director’s this response Raveena Tandon replied, “Mein jab Prashanth se mili thi tab KGF Chapter 1 just khatam hui thi, KGF 1 ke bare me mein itna sun chuki thi sabse ki koi goonjaish hi nhi hoti ki I cannot be a part of this, I had to be a part of this. Prashanth ke sath kaam karna is a dream come to true to have a team like this.

Not just that, another reporter asked the director his choice of preference when it comes to mass or class. Replying to this, the director said, “I try to make a mass movie first, I don’t make it classy, there is class when it comes to the design of the story.
