"We want to bring different characters from different movies and create something like Doctor Strange," he stated.

The film is expected to release in 2024
Kiragandur said that director Prashant Neel is busy shooting Salaar, adding about 30-35% of its shoot is done. He further said Salaar's next schedule will begin next week and it is expected to be completed by October or November this year. "We plan to begin the shoot for KGF after October this year. We hope to release the film by 2024," he added.
'KGF: Chapter 2' continues to see successful run
The KGF franchise narrates the life and story of the lead character—Rocky (Yash)—an underdog who becomes the ruler of the gold-mining business at Kolar Gold Fields. The first installment, too, was a major hit. Meanwhile, KGF: Chapter 2 continues to run successfully at the theatres. The film is holding its ground well against Benedict Cumberbatch's latest film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
