Rocking star Yash's latest release KGF Chapter has been receiving massive appreciation from all quarters. It's not only about the portrayal of larger-than-life characters, direction, action sequences, thrills, songs or other technical aspects. The movie editing, being a major part of bringing out the best shots and placing them with high accuracy and precision, has received high admiration from the fans as well as technicians from the field.

But, do you know, the Kannada origin movie which is on a spree of breaking several global records, was edited by a 19-year-old fan of the Rocking Star...?

Yes, you heard it right! Ujwal Kulkarni, the editor of KGF Chapter 2, is a guy who just became an adult. KGF helmer Prashanth Neel during an interview with India Today revealed it publicly.

While answering the questions of the news anchor, Neel said, "I and Yash always discuss and give our inputs. He was a 16-year-old boy when he joined us. He is a fan of Yash and is from Karnataka."

Further shedding light on how he found him (Ujwal) out, Neel said, "He edited a short video of KGF 1 and somebody from the team found out it was edited very nicely. So, we brought him up on board. He showed promising results in the first year."

"The COVID pandemic has brought up several hidden talents," he added.

Meanwhile, Yash said, "Prashanth himself is a good editor and then we found Ujwal, who is a fantastic young boy, who has put a lot of energy. But, I think Prashanth grooms all the technicians. He (Prashanth) is just trying to be modest."

Yash went on to add, "Ujwal has done a fantastic job. But I think in every aspect he has brought a lot of fresh knowledge. It's a great thing that the whole production team put faith in that boy and he has done a fantastic job."
