"We have not yet decided upon the star cast as to who is going to be added additionally. KGF: Chapter 3 will not happen this year. We have some plans, but Prashanth (Neel) is busy with Salaar at the moment while Yash will be announcing his new movie soon. Therefore, we need them to come together at the right time when they are free to begin work on KGF 3. As of now, we don't have a fixed date or time as to when the work on the third instalment will start," the website quoted him as saying.
He said that the makers will be in a position to open up about the cast and crew.

However, the film's executive producer Karthik Gowda clarified later that the project will not begin at this stage.
Gowda tweeted, "The news doing the rounds are all speculation. With a lot of exciting projects ahead of us , we @hombalefilms will not be starting #KGF3 anytime soon. We will let you know with a bang when we start the work towards it."
Meanwhile, KGF 2 has become the third biggest hit of all time. It has minted over Rs 1200 crore at the worldwide box office since its release on April 14.
