While KGF-2 featuring ‘Rocky Bhai’ star Yash awaits release, the distributor has to contend with the illegal telecast of its prequel on cable television.
Karthik Gowda of Hombale Films has threatened legal action against the channel for running KGF-1’s Telugu version.
He tweeted: “A Telugu local channel named #Every^ is playing KGF film illegally. We will move legally against them and sue for their actions. While the satellite deal is in talks and almost finalised, a cable channel does this. We have ample proof with screen shots, videos of the same.”
KGF-1 was a huge success when it released on December 21, 2018. The multi-lingual movie features Yash, Srinidhi Shetty, Anant Nag and Malavika.
