The fans have welcomed the development, but wondering whether he is replacing Anant Nag, who played the role of a narrator in the first part, in KGF 2. Prakash Raj's avatar strongly reminds the viewers of Nag's role in the first part.

A few months ago, there were rumours of Ananth Nag walking out of KGF 2. According to the reports, Prashanth Neel has made changes to the role played by Nag and the senior Kannada actor was not happy with it. Hence, the latter has decided to stay out of Yash's multilingual movie.

Ananth Nag had a powerful character in the movie although he had very small screen time in KGF 1. His performance had garnered rave reviews from the audience. 

A surprise on the cards?
Well, the fans have a belief that the makers might be trying to surprise the audience by not giving clarification on the development. Sources also say that both Prakash Raj and Ananth Nag are part of the project.
