As of 25 June 2017 the project was 50 percent complete and production had restarted after sets were rebuilt following their destruction by heavy rains.[4] The second schedule started in Mysore. The film has so far been shot in Kolar, Bengaluru and Mysuru. "In our upcoming schedules, we plan on visiting Kolkata, Mumbai and Ladakh as well, apart from more shoots in Mysuru and Bengaluru," said Karthik.[citation needed]

KGF will be released in five languages. It is a complete period drama and is set in the 70s and early 80s. Yash plays the role of Rocky, a slick and a suave person of the 70s era. Apart from Yash and Srinidhi, some of the Kannada actors include Achyuth Kumar, Vasishta N Simha[5] and B Suresha. Ramya Krishna and Nasser are expected to join in later schedules.[6] A technical team, which includes cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda, music director Ravi Basrur and art director Shivakumar, have worked towards creating the ambience and look of the era.[citation needed] The teaser of KGF was released on the Yash birthday (8 January 2018) and was viewed more than 1 million within 17 hours.
