The curious case of Tollywood’s ignorance towards KGF 2

When director SS Rajamouli’s RRR was released on March 25th, every actor and noted name in Tollywood came forward to heap praises on the film and its entire team, writing verses and verses of congratulations and appreciation posts. Naturally, this was expected for another pan-Indian release as well, KGF 2, which was released on April 14th.

Considering that director Prashant Neel has a couple of Tollywood projects lined up after KGF 2, including Salaar and a film with NTR, it was only natural that other actors and noted names in Tollywood would speak on the film. However, this didn’t happen, with almost everyone, with the exception of NTR and Mahesh, ignoring the film completely.

Prashant Neel himself confirmed that he got calls from NTR and Mahesh, and that was about it. Of course, Prabhas recently reacted to the success of both RRR and KGF 2, after returning India from abroad. On the whole, though, Tollywood’s silence on KGF 2 doesn’t seem to be portraying a pretty picture of the industry.
