Hombale Films, which made the Kannada blockbusters KGF and Kantara, wants to invest Rs 3,000 crore in the Indian entertainment industry over the next five years.


Vijay Kiragandur, the founder of Hombale Films, said that the company wants to make movies in all south languages.

We plan to invest Rs 3,000 crore over the next five years in . We think that the entertainment industry will grow more and more.

“It will be a mix of stories. Every year, there will be five to six movies, including one “event” India’s entertainment industrymovie. Kiragandur told PTI in an interview that right now, they want to make movies in all the south Indian languages.

The goal, the producer said, is to reach out to a wider audience through stories that are rooted in culture.

“We want to create something that appeals to people everywhere, but we also want it to be rooted in our traditions and culture. For the next generation, we want to leave something behind. He said, “We also want to support the Indian economy.”

In order to reach more people, the Bangalore-based production banner has decided to work with writers and filmmakers from the Hindi film industry.

Chaluve Gowda, a partner in Hombale Films, said that they have hired two of the best writers in Bollywood to write movies for the company, but he didn’t say more.

We are working with a couple of writers who write in Hindi… Once the story is done, we’ll start looking for a director and then actors. He said that we should start with the writers because they are the ones who create the story.

One of the company’s upcoming movies is Salaar, a pan-Indian film starring Prabhas that will come out on September 28. Prashanth Neel is in charge of directing the action-adventure film. They are also supporting the multilingual movie Dhoomam, the Kannada action movie Bagheera, and the Tamil movie Raghuthata with Keerti Suresh.

In one of their upcoming films, Yuva Rajkumar, grandson of superstar Rajkumar, will make his debut. The film will be directed by Santhosh Anandram, and it will be out by the end of 2023.

For the next year, we have four or five movies, and for the next two years, we will have 12 to 14 movies, Kiragandur said.

In 2024, the movies Tyson with Prithviraj Sukumaran, Richard Anthony with Rakshit Shetty, and a movie with Soorarai Pottru director Sudha Kongara are all in the works.

Hombale Films was started in 2013. In 2018, the period action film K.G.F: Chapter 1 starring Yash did well all over India. The first movie made by the company was “Ninnindale,” which Puneeth Rajkumar directed.

This year, the banner’s films “KGF: Chapter 2” and “Kantara” were both big hits around the world. Both movies have reportedly made more than Rs 2,000 crore worldwide.


We were able to break some records that we had set, like “Kantara” becoming the highest-grossing film in Karnataka. Kiragandur said that there were six crore people who went to see “KGF 2,” and two and a half to three crore people who saw “Kantara.”

Also in the works is the third part of “KGF,” which Gowda said will be their main focus after director Neel finishes “Salaar.”

There are plans for KGF 3′. Right now, Prashant is working on Salaar, and once that movie is done, he will work on the script for KGF 3. He has a story… It could happen next year or after that, the producer said.
