KGF star Yash has turned out to be someone who has driven the nation behind his charm. It is an undeniable fact that he brought the masses back to the theatres after the corona wave hit us hard.

Yash revealed that he took inspiration from many legends to play the role of Rocky. He said, "I grew up watching films, so I can't say that Rocky Bhai was all mine. I was obviously influenced. The films that I watched left a mark on me. I don't go out and see somebody and say I want to do this. But, if I am supposed to play the role of a journalist, I might observe your body language and style. It's all about what you want to use. Sometimes, it comes naturally. Everyone is like Eklavya where you have gurus. You discover the character traits and do it on your own."

Asked if he had a role model, Yash answered, "I had many role models. I am a huge fan of Shankar Nag, Ambareesh, Dr Rajkumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Clint Eastwood's films and several other stars. I get inspired by them. I get influenced by Rajini sir a lot."

As a parting note, Yash said, "I had a problem with my English. We used to think that we need certain qualities to be successful. But, you have got to be confident and showcase what you have got. Then, you can slowly develop those qualities. If I can be accepted across the country, then anybody can be. People from small towns, please take the first step and showcase your talent. Eventually, you will earn respect."

On the work front, Yash recently spilt a bean on KGF 3. But it is not likely to happen any time soon. Yash is yet to sign any new projects looks like he is waiting for a great script to treat the fans and not disappoint them after two back to back hits.
