Sanjay Dutt looks menacing in the first look of the film. His towering physique and brooding looks makes him the perfect villain for a franchise like KGF 2. Inspired by the Vikings, Sanjay looks deadly wearing an embellished and heavy costume as Adheera and holds a sword close to himself. On one side of his face, we can see tattoos as well while Sanjay sports a thick, salt and pepper beard and moustache. Sanjay’s hairstyle is the real deal as he goes for long locks tied in a ponytail that falls on his chest.
In KGF, the makers were careful to keep Adheera’s character a secret. A cruel master hungry for power and violence who is only ever loyal to his brother, Garuda. While Rocky kills Garuda in a massive power struggle in Kolar, Adheera will return to avenge his brother and ultimately fight for the power which belonged to him.
In a previous interview Sanjay had said, “The character of Adheera in KGF is very powerful. If you have seen Avengers, you know how powerful Thanos is. Adheera is as powerful as him.”
Meanwhile, the release date for KGF chapter 2 is yet to be announced. The film releases in Kannada, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
