KGF is the biggest film ever produced in the history of Kannada cinema, and is being compared to Baahubali in terms of grandeur and scale. The rags-to-riches tale revolves around the journey of one man (played by Yash), who rises from the dusty streets of Mumbai to become the ruler of the now-defunct Kolar Gold Fields.
The big-budget action extravaganza also stars Ramya Krishnan, Anant Nag and Achyuth Kumar, apart from Yash.
