When it comes to making a film set in yesteryear era, what a filmmaker first needs to get right is the environment, especially the sets where most of the drama takes place. 

Keeping that in mind, the makers of the much-awaited film KGF have gone all out to ensure that they create perfect environment for the flick. 


Two separate environments were created for the movie, one was Mumbai of the 70s and other was Kolar Gold Fields of early 80s. A lot of research went into recreating both.
