When asked about the collaboration producer Vijay Kiragandur said in a statement, “We are pleased to announce that we have associated with ZEE for the satellite rights of our magnum opus KGF Chapter 2, for the southern languages. With our partnership with ZEE, we are confident to expand our reach to a wider audience. After the record-breaking success of KGF Chapter 1, the expectations from KGF Chapter 2 are enormous. We hope to create and witness a greater euphoria with our grand release. And we are confident that KGF Chapter 2 will be showered with the same love and affection as its prequel”.

Director Prashant Neel added, “I am delighted that the satellite rights of KGF Chapter 2 have been secured by ZEE for southern languages. I value this association with ZEE and believe that with their ever-expanding network we will be able to showcase KGF Chapter 2 to a larger audience. I assure you all that it will be worth the wait”.

The theatrical release of the movie has been postponed several times due to the pandemic. It was initially scheduled to release on 23 October last year. Later, the date was pushed to 16 July this year. However, the release was further postponed given the rise in COVID cases across the country.
