Actor Yash received worldwide success and acclaim after the success of his 2018 film 'KGF' and the sequel KGF: Chapter 2'. After the phenomenal response of the film, the actor accepted that it was KGF that put the Kannada film industry on the map and spoke about how he wants “every director, actor from my industry to become a pan-India star.” 

Yash, during a recent interview with Film Companion, expressed his wish that after achieving success with KGF 2 and Kantara, the people of Karnataka should not disrespect any other film industry in the country.

He said, “I don’t want the people of Karnataka to put any other industry down, because we have faced that problem when everyone treated us like that. We have worked hard to get that respect. After that, we cannot start ill-treating anyone. We should respect everybody. Respect Bollywood. Forget this North and south.”

Yash added, “It’s not good to corner anyone. It’s not a good development when someone starts ridiculing Bollywood saying, ‘They are nothing.’ It’s just a phase. They have taught us so many things.”

The actor wants the current generation to focus on competing on a global stage, instead of competing with each other. “As a country, we should make good films, develop infrastructure, and build theatres. There is so much to do. This generation should stop fighting among ourselves, go out and compete with the rest of the world and say, ‘India has arrived.’”

Yash is currently not working on any movie.
