Amitabh Bachchan's 70s Movies Turned Inspiration for Yash’s Character Rocky in KGF!

Yash's character Rocky, an angry man from KGF Chapter 1 was characterisation from 70’s movies that featured Amitabh Bachchan- namely from the movies, Sholay, Amar Akbar Anthony, Zanjeer, Kaala Patthar and much more...


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 movies, 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. 

Yash has certainly put in immense hard work in the film and has delivered a praiseworthy performance. Yash's character named Rocky runs and rules the Gold Mafia of Kolar Gold Fields in chapter one. Even in the songs, Yash was seen donning a rustic and raw look as everyone sings praises of the mafia king which was inspired by the 70s in essence. 

After his marvellous performance in K.G.F: Chapter 1 and perfectly essayed the role of ‘Angry Young Man’, the fans are looking forward to the second chapter. 

Everyone is eagerly awaiting the second instalment of K.G.F. in which the actor will surely make an even more electrifying appearance as ‘Rocky'. K.G.F: Chapter 2 is all set to release on 23rd October 2020.
