The director Prasanth Neel visited his ancestral place with his family where his father was born and put to rest.

KGF director Prashanth Neel has donated ₹50 lakh for the construction of an eye hospital at Neelakanthapuram in Andhra Pradesh’s Sathyasai district.

The director donated the money on the occasion of his father’s 75th birth anniversary.

Neel’s uncle, senior Congress leader Raghu Veera Reddy, announced the news on Twitter.

He said it was “proud” and “happy” moment for him and the residents of Neelakantapuram.

The donation is expected to help build the LV Prasad Eye Hospital in the village.

Neel visited Neelakanthapuram, where his father was born and laid to rest, with his family on Monday, 15 August.

Next project

After the success of the KGF Chapter 2, the director is currently busy with Salaar. Prabhas will essay the lead role in the film.

Salaar is in progress. Around 50 percent of the shooting has been completed. We need plenty of time for the visual effects and post-production. So, we will wrap the entire shooting part in the first quarter of 2023,” he told reporters during the visit.

Salaar will hit the theatres on 28 September, 2023.

Neel also informed the reporters that he was working on a movie with NTR.

“I have signed a film with NTR, which will go on the floors in April or May in 2023,” he said.
