What's Interesting about it?
Not many have noticed that KGF 2 is releasing on the 41st birthday of Prabhas, who broke all the barriers and became a true pan-Indian star with Baahubali. Now, Yash aiming to create a similar magic with KGF 2 on Telugu actor's special day has only doubled the excitement.

Sheer Coincidence?
More interesting part of the story is the release date of SS Rajamouli's RRR. Till recently, rumour mills have been pitching this film against KGF 2. Now, this multilingual is releasing on Yash's birthday on 8 January which is a sheer coincidence.

Both KGF 2 and RRR are most-awaited movies in the coming months. While the success of the first part of the Yash-starrer has piqued a lot of interest around the second part, the massive success of SS Rajamouli's Baahubali franchise has made people across the country pin high hopes on his latest movie RRR.
