Did you know Yash’s character Rocky in 'KGF' was inspired by all 70’s movies featuring Amitabh Bachchan?


Superstar Yash instantly became a bigger favourite of the audience with his character Rocky, an angry man with KGF chapter 1. The actor’s characterisation was heavily based on worshipped Hindi movies of that era and mostly, 70’s movies that featured Amitabh Bachchan. With his look, Yash sports a long beard with long hair in the movie and has started a trend where his fans are copying the same look as well. To bring it all together, the makers always loved the essence of that era and wanted to create the same essence and magic on the big screen with KGF’s Rocky

They researched extensively and took inspiration from an array of characters of Amitabh namely from the films - Sholay, Amar Akbar Anthony, Zanjeer, Kaala Patthar and much more. The seed of thought was how the makers felt that Hindi cinema was not really the same as its earlier charm and this inspiration was best suited for KGF, which was a pan-India release.
