Kannada superstar Yash is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film KGF: Chapter 2. It is releasing on April 14 worldwide. The trailer of KGF 2 has already got an overwhelming response. The movie has created a lot of buzz much before its release and the euphoria has hit the roof. With KGF, Rocky bhai has become a pan-India star. In an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble, Yash spoke about his family, financial crisis, stardom & failure.
Yash revealed how his mom and dad never wanted him to become an actor, how his father has struggled in his life to give them a comfortable time. He also recalled how several family members who ran away during his family’s tough times now want to be associated with him and his parents.
On handling success and failure, the KGF star said, “Being real is important. I live in a illusion and that’s give me strength as who I am as an actor, star. I want it to be a star not that word star. I am not attached to that. I want to be that guy whom people admire, like to see or watch on screen. At the same time, as a person and as an individual I always feel that you have to be very realistic and practical. So, in terms of being real, it takes a lot to handle success. Failure is very simple because it hits you so hard that whatever bubble you have will be burst. But success can take you to a different route. You have to be extremely careful when you are successful. Failure is very practical and real. People run away from you. Whoever is close to you, or anybody, I have seen that in childhood itself.”
Adding to it, he said, “People who used to be close to our family, respect us, spend good times, they run away when you are in problem. In failure, you learn to be with yourself, learn to handle and tackle it. So, it always teaches you a lesson. At the same time, you should not let failure affect you or success affect you. Success is good, it’s energy. I love to be successful and it gives me strength to do better things. That’s why I like it. It’s something that gives you lots of courage, strength and confidence. If you are not ready to fail, you can’t be successful.”

Yash added, “I respect those who were with me in difficult times. I don’t care who they are. They could be closest relatives ot someone can come ul with other sentiments saying that we all belong to the same culture. I believe audiences are the only relative I have. Because they are not biased. They have supported me. In this market also, they have accepted my work. Rest of the people, they come and go. And I also don’t believe in friendship and all. I have friends who have always stood by me.”
