“An end to the climax shoot. Can’t wait for the world to see ‘KGF Chapter2’ only on the big screen,” he tweeted.

In August, Dutt, 61, had announced that he would be taking a break from his professional commitments to focus on overcoming his battle with cancer.
The actor resumed shooting for the film in November.
“KGF: Chapter 2” cinematographer, Bhuvan Gowda, took to Twitter and shared a picture with Dutt, who features in the film as the antagonist, Adheera.
“End of Hyderabad schedule (climax fight) and end of @duttsanjay sir portion for #kgfchapter2. Had an Amazing experience capturing the legend on camera,” he wrote.
Production on the movie was affected due to the coronavirus-induced nationwide lockdown in March. The work on the sequel resumed in August, with actors Prakash Raj and Malavika Avinash joining the team.
“KGF” follows the story of Rocky (Yash) who rises from poverty to become the king of a gold mine. The sequel also stars Raveena Tandon and Srinidhi Shetty.
