Amazon Prime is in talks to acquire the digital rights to m KGF: Chapter 2's upcoming pan-India release. According to reports, the internet behemoth quoted Rs 55 crores for digital rights across all languages (Kannada, Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam). The film has a lot of hype surrounding it, and several pan-Indian performers are playing key roles. Because of the high expectations and the impact the first instalment had, Amazon Prime chose to pay a large sum for the film's digital rights. The digital rights to KGF: Chapter 1 is owned by Amazon.
Yash will play the lead in ‘KGF 2', also known as ‘KGF Chapter 2'. Sanjay Dutt will play the major evil character in the second chapter. Earlier this year, the release date for ‘KGF 2' was confirmed. Following this declaration, Yash's admirers petitioned Prime Minister Modi to declare the release of "KGF 2" as a national holiday. According to sources, the OTT release rights for ‘KGF Chapter 2' have been acquired by Amazon Prime Video. Amazon Prime Video is aggressively vying with other OTT platforms for the OTT release of blockbuster films on their platform. After Tamil film ‘Master,' starring Vijay, ‘KGF 2' will be the second major blockbuster to be released on Amazon Prime Video this year.
The amount paid by Amazon Prime Video for the film will be determined by the strategy used by the production team for the OTT release of ‘KGF 2.' OTT services pay an early release fee to the movie production team if the film is released on the platform within two weeks of its theatrical release, according to industry standards. According to rumours, Amazon Prime has offered 55 crores for the digital rights deal for KGF: Chapter 2, which includes all versions. Surprisingly, the sum is three times greater than the 18 crores believed to have been paid for the first instalment.
Earlier today, the official Instagram page for the KGF movie declared that the ‘KGF Chapter 2’ will hit the theatres on September 9. The caption to the post said, “#KGFChapter2 to hit theatres on September 9th if there’s no third wave. Post – theatrical digital rights in negotiation with Amazon Prime.”
