The much-awaited bilingual flick KGF: Chapter 2 finally has a release date. 

The makers of the movie took to Twitter to announce that the Yash-starrer will be out in cinemas on July 16.

Directed by Prashanth Neel, the second instalment of KGF stars Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt as the main antagonist.

The first instalment of the movie showed how Rocky, played by Yash, born in poverty, rose up to be a dreaded gangster in Mumbai and how his hunger for power led to the gold mines of Kolar. The sequel will build on this hunger for power and his struggle to retain his control.

Apart from Yash and Dutt, the movie also stars Prakash Raj, Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty and Malavika Avinash in the lead.

Earlier, a teaser of the movie gave the fans glimpse into the great visuals and the characters essayed by Tandon and Dutt in the movie.

Dutt had compared his role in the movie to Thanos in the Hollywood superhero flick Avengers. "If you have seen Avengers, you know how powerful Thanos is. Adheera is as powerful as him," the actor was quoted as saying.
